The back yard of this place is large and about a third of it is treed. There is a large deck on the back of the house and it's very private with mature shrubs and trees lining the lot lines. The "lawn" area has been neglected and has probably never seen Weed and Feed. I'm not thrilled at the weed patch and have heard these organic products are not as effective as the old fashioned ones so I'm not really keen on fighting a loosing battle there. I'd like a lush green weedless carpet of grass but since that's not likely with the chemical ban what are some other alternatives? A pool is not in the budget.
