What do you guys use to treat your yard? I use Scotts weed & Feed, but it kills me to spend $50+ on some grass food. Is there cheaper shit or am I stuck with Scotts?

Dont go name brand. Honestly, StaGreen which is Lowes in house brand is literally the same stuff. Also, mulch your lawn dont bag it. Let the natural nitrogen feed your lawn. Oh and also let it get to a good length before cutting it. Dont cut it super short either. Keep it around 2 inches long and it will stay healthy and not start developing patches.

Make sure it gets plenty of sun and water during its germination period. That straw blanket helps give it the nutrients to grow and keep the seeds from blowing everywhere. But once its gone you need to feed it. Like I told bart2278, mulch your lawn, dont cut it short. If the sod doesnt take, then you wasted a fair bit of money so make sure the roots grow out of the rolled up sod. You can also throw down some seed on the already existing grass to help fill in some patches.

I usually use the vigero weed and feed from menards.


This year I used the stuff from the gf's company. They sell product to villages and golf courses. Claims it's the parent company of scotts. My grass looks better than I think it has in the last 12 years. The rain helped, but my god. It's like a shag carpet so thick and green.

Do I mulch all the time? Or just every so often?

For the sod and straw blanket, should I be using the same seed? Or are there specific bags that work better for one or the other? [Grabs pen/paper].

I would personally do every other time. If you start to see it dwindling then up it to every time.

Use the same seed. Just make sure its the same species otherwise it will either not grow right or it will look weird. Like some really dark grass vs some really light looking grass. Usually the ones you find at your local home improvement store carry only the species that exist in your region. But you never know. Midwest usually has kentucky blue and fescue.
