OK, I'm back and armed with questions....been out most of today so had time to think while driving!

So I get a phone call from Mr. Future Customer and when I get to his lawn, it has some grass, and a good amount of broad leaf/grassy weeds. As an organic guy, I don't want to spray the heavy stuff, but as a businessman, I need to perform and get that lawn looking great in a cost effective (short of tearing up the whole lawn) manner, quickly.

This customer is totally unhappy with his current "synthetic" service and cannot stand weeds in his lawn.

Realistically, what's my approach?

By the way, this is totally hypothetical!

A-bomb.. when the radiation fades 'plant' with astroturf.

Nah, blanket a selective post, good starter fert (aka compost) and overseed. Teach them to mow at right height and irrigate appropriately. Organics is based on a functioning system.. if you have to "cheat" to establish the system that is ok in my book.

Thank you Utah. That is kind of what my feelings are.....get rid of all of the bad stuff in one shot, start fresh with a good renovation. Any other successful approaches to this?

if the lawn is not 70% or more good grass then spray it and lay it and start over. Don't try and raise the dead

WHAT IS THE BUDGET?????
i would hate to see you lose a job on overkill if that is not what they want/afford
you have to learn them on how it works and go from there sometimes.
