    Natty,
    thanks for the links. I've been thinking about what I posted in this tread about a customer not having alot of money to start and spraying synthetic herbicides to get the yard under control. I think I failed to realize that the customer will have to bite the bullet and pay for the proper renovation at some point in time to get desired results
    cause depending on the soil to begin with in that yard.
    they will probably need aeration/seed and a good top dressing of compost to really start their program right.
    cause with out that, there are still seeds dormant on the soil,
    and how are you going to increase fertility to grow a dense turf with out the renovation? will spraying syns. and adding organics ferts be enough? there's over seeding and even better slit seeding, but will that be enough to correct things?
    I want to give the best advice to the customer to begin with and I really want to stay away from those chemical's in the first place.
    I guess I go back to the drawling board and try to work this out.

    any suggestion anybody?:hammerhead:
