Photos were taken in my back/front yard. House is a year old. Located just outside Philadelphia.

Maybe there is an owner near you on this forum who can come give you a one shot squirt this Spring. I heard your budget but this might do all you need to be happy along with proper mowing. Gets back to the lawn size question.
Grassy areas are probably 1/3 to a little under a 1/2 acre. I pushmow (no bad). How did I determine my mower is set properly to 4"? If my mower is in the garage should it be 4" from the garage floor to the base of the blades/mower?
I am on a budget, but can spend what's necessary on fertilizer and such, but need to do it myself (or of course help from a friendly neighbor!).
