    OK here is the deal...

    Went to see a potential customer about taking care of his yard annualy. When I show up I notice the lawn looks dead. I mean it really is gray and dead. He tells me that Chemlawn treated his lawn twice in two and a half weeks last year and killed it off.

    So my question is, as I am a newbie, how the hell do I fix it without just replacing the entire lawn? I am honeslty thinking of just refering him on to a seasoned professional.

    Well that's what I would do if I were you then.Gotta go with your gut on these things.
    But be sure to offer your services to maintain it once replaced.

    If its really dead cut is as short as you can power rake it then aerate and seed. You cant kill it again so what do you have to loose.
