simple lawn tips for your own home:
a. If you're fertilizing as a mo-jo homeowner, you're probably fertilizing too much. On average, homeowners who get a soil testing of their lawn's soil (plus or minus $25) will save more money in the long run. A soil test will tell you what type of nutrients you actually need instead of just "adding fertilizer" to the soil, I promise you'll probably be adding less fertilizer than you originally were. (But usually alll your grass needs is Nitrogen)
f. Want greener grass? Apply iron :) Not too much or it will turn so dark green it'll look black!
