Hello All,

I have to admit, that 'am not so happy

with my current lawn maintenance guys.

So, I confined our contract to

just mowing and trimming/cleanup chores

only.

My Q: I am a kinda newbie. By next

year, I would like to regain my

front lawn from weeds. The front

lawn is Bermuda grass, the typical you see in Dallas (vicinity).

The weeds have grown almost every inch

but, I am convinced that I can try

containing them by proper applications

of weed control. Since this is May

, 'guess I have to wait till september

to drench the whole front lawn with

pre-emerging weed container.

I guess 'am getty too wordy here,

So my Qs are:

1. Can someone suggest a plan and schedule (what and when to apply) to

regain my bermuda grass within a

year (by next summer) without laying new sod!

2. How to maintain St. Augstine grass

in my backyard? What applications and

what timeframe..

3. Are there seeds available for both?

Where to find them (Home depot?)

Thanks a million!
