My wife and I moved in to our first house last late fall. My lawn is a mess. And it REALLY stands out because most of the neighbors down the entire block have perfect lawns. I am located in SE Wisconsin. I put down some Menards brand weed and feed in April. Then in June I used Scotts Turfbuilder. I've also applied a single applications of ortho weed be gone to kill a lot of weeds that popped up earlier. I haven't really watered at all. It's been very hot and humid. We've also had more rain and crazy storms than usual. My lawn is very brown and spotty. There is also some weeds that keep returning or can't get rid of. What is the best course of action to get me on the road to recovery and what can I do to keep it in good shape? These links are all thumbnails. I have a strip of grass in front of my yard along the street as well as a side hard on the left hand side facing the house that is just as bad.
