I took over a former rental unit and 2020 and 2021 I did a lot of fall seeding. The lawn is starting to look a lot better. There is still a lot of weeds, but I've been able to fill in the bare areas. The backyard was very neglected so that's going to take a lot of work but it'll be worth it when the kids can play on more green than brown dirt/clay.

It does not take much work to get amazing results when it comes to a nice lawn.

Perfect weekend to aerate and fertilize the lawn. One of the BEST things you can do to improve your lawn.

Week ahead offers impressive above average temps in the 80s.

Now that you have gotten your aeration and seeding taken care of, hopefully things are germinating nicely and all the bare spots are gone. For cool season lines over the next several weeks to two months you’re really want to push nitrogen as this is the most important time of the year.

You do not want to be using organic fertilizers this time of the year and instead you want quick release given the cooler temperatures.

TOP PICK.
Get yourself 3 to 4 applications of turf builder or of the like in between now and the end of the year, I typically am applying every 3 to 4 weeks.

A common winter weed is annual bluegrass. Seeds germinate in autumn when soil temperatures drop below 70 °F. Preemergent herbicides should be applied when we receive four consecutive days with daytime highs at or below 75 °F.

I normally apply a weed-n-feed in the spring and a winterguard in the fall. I live in NW Arkansas and I have bermuda.

What would your suggest?

Personally, I would avoid weed and feed type fertilizers and only spot treat as needed with spring. Something such as Ortho weed-B-Gone.

Thanks for the reply back. I was leaning toward not using the weed and feed after what it did to my lawn last year. It turned my lawn yellow and it did not kill the weeds. I have been using weed-b-gone for years to spot treat the weeds.

What about the Winterguard product from Scott's?
