    I want a great lawn......here's what I 'm up against...we bought this house 2 years ago and the lawn was nasty...I have it headed in the right direction but can't seem to get it the way we want.........still getting weeds-bugs-etc.
    it does look 100% better but I want the best.....can some one give me a good program for this coming year. My wife bugs me for being in the yard all the time and I need to SHOW her.~L~

    I WANT A LUST GREEN LAWN(weedless) and bug free...her dogs got fleas last year.

    Thanx in advance.

    Have the extension agency do a soil test first. A fertilizer/pesticide program can be designed around those results.

    The reason I ask is I fertilized my own lawn for a few years with decent results until I was refered to a small outfit in West Chester (I'm near Downingtown) that now does my 2 acre lawn for a very reasonable price. They took all the guessing out of fertilizing (timing, product, application amounts, etc.) But Harrisburg is probably out of their servicing area.

    I don't think too much of the Scotts homowner products. Their Pro products are manufactured by Lesco I believe. Bayer is a manufacturer of fine products. Lebanon makes good products, I am partial to Lesco. All that being said, these are labeled and controled products. They will perform as stated on their label. If you apply the correct products correctly in accordance with label and the environmental conditions you will get good results.

    If you apply Merit grub control and then get grubs, you have done something wrong. It could be a calibration issue, didn't water it in in time, bad pattern, etc...
