How can I make my lawn look better?
I have been using a Weed Hound to get rid of the dandilions in my yard and it has worked great. The lawn looks better already. I am just wondered what else I can do to make my lawn look better. I have a lot of "weeds" growing in my yard like clover and lambsquarter but that doesn't bother me too much except when it gets in the flower and vegetable beds. I just want to know what I can do now to make my lawn healthier and look lusher. There are some spots that are completely bare, some spots where there are big clups of grass surrounded by bare patches, but this is mostly in the backyard. The front yard looks fairly decent but has some of the same problems. I have heard that I should areate (sp?) my yard but I don't have access to one of those big things you need to do that. I am on a pretty tight budget and have a limited amount of time to spend each day. I would appreciate any suggestions.
To give an idea of what the yard looks like in some spots, here is a picture.
