How to Fix Your Lawn When You Have Weeds?

If you found this article online, it is probably because you're trying to learn how to fix a lawn with a lot of weeds. The best way to do it is to first of all determine how many we do have in your lawn. The amount of weed you have will determine what method you use to trying get rid of them and repair your lawn. If you have less than 50% weeds, that is awesome. You can do it the easy way. All you need to do is just apply weed killer to your lawn or a weed killer that also fertilizes.

If you apply this to your lawn once or twice, you'll probably get rid of the majority of the weeds and you'll have a lawn that looks much nicer and healthier. By keeping your lawn healthy, you make it harder for weeds to come back. The best defense against weeds is grass that is growing very healthy in your lawn. If you have more than 50% meets your lawn, lawn repair is going to be a little bit more difficult. The way you're going to want to repair your lawn if you're going to probably want to just pray your whole lawn with Roundup and then wait 7 to 10 days for it to die. Once it is dead, use a sod cutter to cut out the Saud and the weeds that are in your lawn. After you remove all of the sod, add a fresh layer of topsoil to your existing dirt.

Make sure to grade it properly before installing new sod. The next step is to install new Saud. Have the sod delivered on the same day that you plan to install it. This will increase the chances of a growing and it will also come in a lot faster. Then you want to roll out your lawn with a soil roller. Make sure to roll in straight lines. And make sure that the thought comes into contact with the soil as you are rolling it on. After you get your lawn completely rolled, you may want to go back and trim or cut the edges if they are supposed to be uneven.

 Then, make sure to water your lawn on a regular basis, two or three times per day. This will keep the new sod from drying out, and it should help it to establish with the soil itself a lot faster. Aerating your lawn on a regular basis can also help you to have less weeds. When the soil is compacted, grass doesn't grow as well. When you aerate, you make the ground less compacted so the turf and grass can get thicker and provide better protection against weeds.
