Hey guys, I'm fresh out of college and just moved into a rental house in Greenfield, IN. I am an entrepreneur and one of the things I am starting is a lawn service company. I'm going to mow, but I would also like to offer lawn treatment - aerating, fertilizing, etc. Thing is...I know nothing about that aspect so I've spent the last week researching (Purdue's turftips, etc). I don't have a license yet for herbicides, etc. so I'll just be using retail stuff on my own lawn, but I figured this will give me some experience. So, since this is a rental, the yard is basically the worst thing I have ever seen. The yard is 20% grass, 30% crab grass, and 50% weeds or bare. I figure I can't make anything worse. From my research, this is what I've come up with. Can you guys tell me if I'm on the right track, what you would do differently, etc? Don't worry about hurting my feelings...I know I'm brand new to this. TOMORROW: Mow yard to 1.5'' and AERATE! The yard is packed hard. Following Purdue's advice, 20-40 holes per sq. ft. 2. Tomorrow: Lay down start fertilizer high in phosphorous. 1 lb at least per sq. 1000ft. - I'm looking at either of these - thoughts? http://www.homedepot.com/p/LESCO-50-lb-PPSCU-Starter-Fertilizer-052405/100343536#.UiqVKz8piHc http://www.homedepot.com/p/Scotts-4...Brand-Fertilizer-21814/203187364#.UiqVVT8piHc 3. Tomorrow: 100% Kentucky Bluegrass Seed at 2lbs per 1000sq. ft. 4. Light and frequent irrigation for the next few weeks 5. Four weeks after germination, apply 1.0 pound of nitrogen per 1000 ft2 of lawn using a fertilizer containing N, P, and K. 6. Second fertilizer application (urea) after the last mowing of the year, but while the turfgrass is still green (rate of 1.0 to 1.25 pounds of nitrogen per 1000 ft2 of lawn) 7. An application of a broadleaf herbicide containing 2,4-D MCPP, and dicamba in mid-October So, what do you guys think? Will this work alright?
