OT: Lawn Care JoCo.

This is the first house that I've lived in where I have to take care of the lawn and it's a mess. I thought that all I needed to do was mow regularly and spray a few weeds down with walmart brand weed killer.

I didn't know what areation or 6 step programs was and my lawn is mess because of it. I can't kill weeds fast enough. The ones that I do come back to life it seems. It's by no means covered with weeds but there are a few patches in front, and a large one on the side.

I need professional help. I had some landscaping done and the guy offered to aerate for 500.00 which seems extremely high.

Can anyone recommend a good local company? There are so many lawn companies to pick from in the area.

What weeds are me talking about? It can be real hard to nuke everything without turning your entire lawn into a brown mess.

Most times mixing up some Round Up works.

Try this. I should leave you ok, but it is going to be winter before long, so who cares anyway?

"Treated lawn areas can be reseeded in 7 days"

Just putting it out there before someone comes and talks trash.

Ryan Lawn and Tree. The owner lives in my neighborhood and has always treated me right. In fact, he goes above and beyond for me. I won't go into the details, but he does a lot of stuff that I don't always have to pay for, just as a courtesy.

I also had them do my sprinkler installation, and I couldn't be happier.

So, that's my recommendation. They aren't the cheapest, but they all know what they're doing.

I'm not sure to be honest. Quite a bit of different things. I'll take some pictures and match them up on line.

From what I've been told, it's a great time to reseed?

Just go with the natural prairie look and tell everyone you are xeriscaping your lawn. It's way easier, although the hay fever might be rough.

You don't need to aerate. I never have and lawn does great. Just go to grass pad late next February and buy the Idiot Proof Lawn Care system. And then repeat every year, with occasional overseeding in the fall.

$500 to aerate, I'd never use that landscaper again. Check craigslist, can get it for $75-$100.
