    Hi, living in Southeast Michigan. I have this growing in bunches throughout the lawn. Lawn Care company sprayed pre-emergent a while ago, just as the Forsythias were getting yellow.

It all starts after the first rains which we should start getting in the next 30ish days. I want to get in front of it and prevent all...

    Hi guys, So I made the biggest mistake ever this spring. I basically killed my entire yard. Went to Tractor Supply and asked the worker what the best product was for weed control. She obviously had no idea, but pointed to me what all the "farmers" were using. Without thinking twice, I grabbed...

We are still in the city so it's a small yard, but we would like to make a lawn out of it. Attached are some photos of things currently growing in our...

    Can anyone identify this grass from the seed heads? They have been popping up all over the edges of my lawn for the past couple of weeks and I'm thinking it's immature grass stickers, but want to make sure. Thanks! Location: West Texas

    Hi Everyone, This post is the main reason I joined DIY chatroom but I'm sure I'll be pretty active after it considering the responses. My lawn at the beginning of the season and into late july was looking great! (Green, healthy, water regularly and extensively on hot days) All of a sudden...

    I live at the Jersey shore by the ocean, and I have these burrs on my lawn. They start green, then dry out and become brown and hard with spikes. I have tried a lot of lawn sprays, but they never die! Does anyone know the name of these weeds and how to get rid of them? Thanks!!

    I have a block-paved patio out back which is overrun with weeds coming up in between the bricks. I've tried weedkiller, but they just grow back. I've tried uprooting them all by hand, but that seems to make the cracks bigger and therefore the weeds worse. I guess I need to seal it, but as a...
