New to lawn care - general questions
I understand all lawns are different, so I'm just looking for some general tips for natural lawn care.
I am a new home owner, inherited what appears to be a pretty healthy lawn. The prior owner told me he used organic fertilizer. The lawn has A LOT of clover, but is very green and generally looks good. We also have a sprinkler system.
At the beginning of the season, somebody talked me into buying Scott's 4 season fertilizer. So I put the 1st step down (the crab grass preventer I think), and in theory the next step is the weed and feed, but I am reconsidering now.
I've been cutting the grass high and often with a mulching mower and it appears to be working. Dandelions have all but gone away (there were a fair amount in april & early may that I had to pull out).
If I stop scott's and go the organic route, in general - what kind of fertilizer and weed control needs will my lawn have? Is mowing it high and mulching enough? What kind of treatment would it need, for example, just spring and fall?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
