Yup! South Bend, Indianag-man said:Welcome to TLF. Are you in south bend Indiana?
You side yard looks fairly bad. Normally we recommend against a spring Reno. The summer heat and the weeds make it tough for the lawn to establish. You do have a smallish lawn at 2500sqft. Come up with a plan to keep it watered thru the summer.
We also don't recommend tillering, it just doesn't help. It also makes the lawn bumpy if you don't roll it flaten It. Round up for a few weeks is best. It really makes sure you kill all the weeds at the root.
Do you have seed selected?
Edit: also, call 811. It is free and could save you some headaches.
i have a sprinkler system on a timer that should keep the lawn well watered. It also doesn't really get warm here until July most years. I thought of waiting till fall but got excited when it got warm for a couple days so i decided to do something about it.
I can see where that recommendation comes from...now. Its gonna take quite a few passes and a lot of raking. luckily its a small yard.
Picked up a TTTF mix and plan on trying that out.
811 came out and marked before I started. Apparently Comcast doesn't bother to report where they have lines buried.
