Depends on the species of grass that you have. Mine is the St. Augustine variety and I used to use Scotts Bonus S. Then, they seemed to have changed their formula recently to be more "homeowner friendly." Apparently you can put it down any time of the year now instead of when the temperature is below 85 degrees. So, it doesn't work as well as it used to.

Now I use a product called Lesco and am getting better results. It still doesn't kill all the weeds so after a month or so I will have to follow-up with a mixture of "Image" weed killer.

Being a homeowner is a lot of work and that lawn maintenance is going to kill me one day.

Since having a child, I now use a product called Wow Supreme which is all natural. The results the first year were so so but this year (the second year) my lawn looks great. I live in PA so I'm not certain how it would perform in the warmer climates. Prior to my 'green awakening' I used Scotts, always with great success.

I'm pretty sure I have blue grass, fescue mix. I'll have to check it out. It's a small area probably 50x75'so pretty manageable and has a sprinkler system.

I have been out of the grass games for several years after moving here from dallas. A lot of people hate grass and love rocks in their back yard but I will tell you it is easier to manage grass than rocks and weeds, especially during monsoons.

Use Weed-b-Gone max. It doesn't fertilize but it'll for sure get rid of the dandelions. After they're dead you can go back with weed and feed or just fertilizer.

This question would get deleted if it ended 2 words earlier. I almost spit my coffee out when I read the first 5 words.

I live in WI and we have a local gardening center chain called Stein Gardens and Gifts, great place. They have their own 4 step lawn-care program (Similar to Scott's). They supposedly specifically engineered it for the Wisconsin climate. I can say it work's quite well for my Kentucky Blue Grass. And after an unusually mild winter and very warm March my lawn is looking quite amazing for this early in the season. Once my weeds are in full bloom in a few days I'll be throwing down step 2, which is the weed & feed. I recommend checking it out for any wooters living in WI or Northern IL.

Whatever is on sale in my area. I'm not tied to any particular brand, but if it's on sale, that typically means that it's the right one for the season we are in...

@caffeine_dude: I was gonna say Acapulco Gold and California Pizza Kitchen, but I realized that was a wrong answer.

Right answer: I prefer Scotts products for my lawn since they can be used year 'round now. In South Florida, you have to be careful of products that may burn your lawn.

@gilfilent: Loved the background story to the question. I wouldn't have even glanced at the question without it!

I clicked on this question really curious, but then I realized you were talking about some other kind of "weed." Nevermind.

@luvche21: Haha thanks! It is true, I am stuck in Afghanistan missing my back yard work!

@caffeine_dude: That's funny, I didn't even think about weed until you guys brought it up! :)

@gilfilent: I thought about it the moment I read the question. I was thinking more along the lines of Maui Wowee and dark chocolate cheesecake. :)

I wondered if this was a two part question when I read it.
