Long time lurker here. Between family and work, I have neglected my lawn for a bit too long and its looking kinda rough. Its obviously very late in the season, but looking forward, I want to set myself up well for next year.

I am located in CT (06478 to be precise).

The yard is 1.5 acres, probably 3/4 acre lawn area. Attached are pics of some common weeds/crab grass that I have.

To get a jump on next year, should I worry about fighting the weeds now..? If so, what is the best weed killer I can use..?

For fertilizer, I spread some milorganite in the spring and fall. I hope to get around to a soil test in the next couple weeks to see what else I need, like lime etc.

I'd rather not pay a pro, but am open to the possibility, just don't know how to find someone worthy of my hard earned money.....
