So just moved in and the lawn is nothing special as you can see.  I have never had the green thumb but I would love to get this lawn looking green and good.  As you see its a mixture of grass and weeds any help would be great with where to go from here.  Im living in Virginia weather hear lately has been about 85 degrees if that helps at all!

Remember, it's best to do it right once...unless you have the time and money to do it twice.


Happy Gardening,
