Hello...

Earlier this year I had a new lawn put in my back yard because I had a tree taken out, so my backyard is just about perfect. Minus the spots where my dog visited, but that's a different story...

My front yard however isn't bad, but... There is a bunch of clover and crab grass. Is there a way to get rid of this? I've been using the Scott's program. I've put it on the front yard last winter and 2 times so far this year and getting ready for the 3rd application. I was wondering if there was something I could do this fall to prevent the clover and crab grass from growing again next year. Do I have to till the yard up and re-do the front yard too???

Thanks for any help...

If the only green in your front yard is the clover and crab grass, perhaps you're looking at a total redo of the lawn (best done in the fall). If the crab grass and clover is just a problem and not the only green, perhaps a fall program of plug aeration, top dressing, and re-seeding will help. Next spring, follow up with an appropriate fertilization program that includes a pre-emergence for crab grass. Later in the season, you'll want to apply a broad leaf weed killer with the fertilizer.

But this fall, aerate, top dress, and reseed...(watering sufficiently to keep it from drying out).
