Spring Lawn Care NEWBIE!
Good afternoon! I am an 'extreme lawn care' beginner. I live in Houston, Texas, pretty far down in Zone 9 (something I learned today) and would like to know where to start! I read that I should weed, dethatch, aerate, seed, then fertilize. Yet, after reading from this website, it makes sense to aerate, then apply the pre-emergent. Am I on the right path? Is there another place I should start? My front yard has 2 trees that are 40 years old; a fig tree that doesn't have any grass growing around it, its mainly dry dirt. I just need some help!
