Greetings, I just bought a brand new house (in southern Missouri) with a brand new sodded lawn. Turns out the yard (dirt) was not properly conditioned before the sod was put down (March, '05) AND the yard was overwatered for a good six weeks after it was put down. By the time I moved in (May, '05), the yard had large spots of dead grass (from overwatering) and lots of weeds (from poor conditioning). Over the last couple of months, the dead spots have been replaced by a light green, grass-like weed that grows about four times faster than my grass. It comes up mostly between the sod strips but also comes up through the sod. Basically, what I have now is a yard that is about 60% light green, tall, grass-like weed, and 40% unhealthy looking sod that is a darker green color. It seems to me the light green weed will soon choke out the dark green sod if something isn't done. Question: What can I do to save this yard? How do I strengthen the original grass so that it will choke out the weeds? I applied Weed & Feed in Mid-June and again in Mid-July but, at this point, I think that may have been what was responsible for the frantic weed growth. Ideas/suggestions? Do I need to reseed? If so, when? Any help appreciated.
