    You don't know who you should call?

    You don't know how to aerate and seed?

    Oh, I gotcha...
    This time of year, whew...
    It's tough, this isn't the time for it.

    But I agree, the first thing to do is find out what they actually put down,
    it might still be active in the soil for instance.
