Looking to find out what we should start using to get our grass started this spring. We are on 1 1/2 acres and have tons of weeds during the summer! mainly dandelions. We've only been here 2 years.

Do we start adding the fertilizer with weed control? or just a weed control? When do we start adding it to the ground?

We also have the front of the yard that has speratic areas of dirt, and we need to get grass to start and grow fast.

What do we add here? just regular grass seed?

does the fertilizer with weed control have grass seed in it?

We are new to anything grass.

I'll admit his lawn is immaculate year after year but not the most earth friendly stuff ingredients go into it...

You need to go to a garden center as it would take me forever to explain all the parameters of your questions...

lots or organic/inorganic options out there...
