    My goal this yr is to have a really nice and green lawn. I am located in NJ and just put down the scotts step1 program 2 weeks ago. I am noticing a little improvement but would like the lawn to get better. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Patience! Your soil temperatures may still be to low for your turf to really take off.

    First, have a soil test performed by a soil testing lab. This will determine a great many factors that will affect the growth of turf grass. You should also determine the type of grass you have now and whether it is properly suited for your conditions. What about sun exposure. Is the lawn all in full sun, partial sun or shaded. The right type of grass will help with sun exposure. Are you putting down the correct type and amount of fertilizer, what about irrigation? Does the lawn need to be over seeded to fill in bare spots?
