looking for the mother of all overseeding techniques
I am in the process of moving to organic lawncare. I would say that I am "almost there." My lawn is looking good with some very small bare spots here and there. The problem is that the bare spots have invited weeds, with the biggest pain being "spurge" (I hate, hate, hate spurge!!!!).
It is very clear that I have to fill every last bare spot this year so that I don't have to put up with another year of spurge. I also want to overall "thicken" my grass. I don't care how long it takes, or how much it costs, but I want to make sure that I go into next spring with few - if any - bare spots in the lawn.
So, here is my question? What is the best way to accomplish this goal?
- slit seeder?
- patch master in every bare spot?
- combination of the two?
- any other ideas?????
