Herman Munster's grass looked better "HELP"


What can I do to fix my Lawn in Nothern,N.J. I just airrated it. Well I tried to up load a picture, But I must be a dummy I cant find out how to do it. If someone knows how to put a picture in this. It would make it easy to explain all the problems. Im so sorry for being an Idiot.

Would be nice to know what it is supposed to be as well. Do you know what was planted? If it was some sort of contractors annual rye, you would only get one season out of it.

Who said you were an idiot? Being unfamiliar with something does not make you an idiot.
If that's the case, EVERYONE is an idiot! No-one knows everything! (Well, except me, I do know everything...... that's why they want me dead....)

BUT! I digress....

These may help us help you. ---> How to attach a photo to a post
and ---> How to resize photos to post them here. if needed.

Quite true. WE don't but THEY do!

Seriously, take your meds DM!

Did I read somewhere that newbies were restricted from posting photos until a certain number of contributions or something? If this is the case, the OP will get very frustrated.

Scratch my glass panel fence idea by the way. I re-read to see the deer issue. Lexan would work but will be outrageous. Not sure any fence is going to keep things like moles out. How about a mote and some gators or snappers. Don't worry if they are not native. They might love the climate and nothing does an environment more good than introducing species to it that take off but do not belong!

Bill: I see nothing that some seed and watering won't fix. What exactly is the problem?

I would feed it too. It should fill in unless you noticed some sort of fungus or something last year. Might want to mow it a bit higher too.

Get your soil tested by your county extension. From the looks of it, it could just need some seed and fertilizer. Get that soil tested and you'll know what nutrients are out of balance ( if any ). How did you aerate it by the way? Core or spike?

You could go buy some earthworms too and gently add them.

Has anyone done this? If so, how do you add the earthworms? Dig a hole for them and just put them in? Any noticeable gains?

I'd certainly be willing to give this idea a try myself.

No idea. But if you spread them around... do it AFTER you have aerated.
