I live in Maryland, and I expanded my back yard last fall by clearing some trees and leaves. I brought in top soil and tried to smooth out the contour also. After seeding, I had areas of success and failure in the yard. I didn't put down starter fertilizer, which was my fault. I'm ready to put some time in this spring to help get a healthy lawn going before the summer temperatures rise. Some of the advice I've gotten:
- Overseed again
- Use starter fert. this time
- Spread Lime
What is the right thing to do for a lawn's first summer season?
