Need Yard Advice!

We recently purchased a home that was vacant for over a year and the yard has become…..


a dandelion forest! Between the dandelions, crab grass and clover, we don’t have much grass. I want to kill the weeds and then put down some grass seed. Any advice on what products to use?



  1. I don’t know what you use but Shaun would know and would probably be estactic if you asked him since it is his passion.

  2. Excellent idea!

  3. The only thing that has ever worked on crab grass for me is Round Up. The stuff that kills everything. So I use it around the edges of my yard and whatnot, but I still have some big patches in the middle of my lawn that I don’t want to just spray because then everything would die. My mom told me she used to take a q-tip and individually paint each blade of crab grass with round up, so the crab grass would die and the real grass would be fine. Worked great until one time when it rained right after she did it and the chemical went everywhere and killed a bunch of the lawn. So I haven’t done that. 🙂
