Okay here goes. I have a pretty large front yard (2 acres) - The yard was first established in 1979. Since I bought it 10 years ago, there really had been no real effort to make the grass look nice, make greener, thicker, get rid of weeds, etc... But I need to change this. I keep a nice clean, immaculate yard, and WANT NICE GRASS IN THAT 2 ACRES. Now I've tried a few times spreading Fertilizer and Grass Seed, etc multiple times, with only little tiny areas showing signs of it working. Mainly, the immediate area around my house (where there is some shade) grows some really nice grass, no complaints there. However, what can I do to get that 2 acres worth look and feel a lot better? I'm going to spray weed killer to kill off off the weeds first. Then was thinking about buying a pull behind, heavy SPIKE aerator to open up the yard. Then spread grass seed again, but it's just too much yard to cover up the grass seed once spreading to a heavy rain doesn't wash it all away (which has happened several times as well when I spread before a rainfall) I'm just sick of having grass in the front that doesn't grow well (it's not dirt by any means) - It's a fully developed, full yard, but the grass just doesn't grow and doesn't get a dark green color. Would a simple weed treatment, then aeration, then spread seed work? And then liquid nitrogen later to make it greener (I know, expensive) - I know I'm all over the place with this post, but hopefully, someone understands what I'm going through and can offer a reasonably priced resolution to get a beautiful yard that is FULL SUN all day with only a few smaller trees in the front yard. Thanks in advance for all the help everyone! Much appreciated!!!!!
