Just starting out this spring in the business and just signed up a friend to do his yard. I live in transition zone and his yard is about 1/2 zoysia and 1/2 fescue. The zoysia has taken over areas in large patches but also has fescue in bunches sprinked in with it. He has had heavy equipment driving around last year in his back yard leaving bare areas (or I should say weedy areas). Weeds are covering approx. 20% of yard. He has not been happy with his previous lawn service. I told him basically that he really needed to do some renovating, big time, but he does not want to do that. I told him about the different fertilizing schedules, mowing requirments, watering requirements, etc., etc., for warm-season vs. cool season grasses but I could not convince him to start over. He told me to do my best, that when zoysia greens up his yard looks pretty good. What do I do? Any other person I would have said forget it. I plan on going over and spraying for broadleafs and thought about putting down Dimension (17-0-8), spreading another several applications of N throughout summer and early fall. I would appreciate any help or advice you could give me!
