First Mow of the Season

lawn-mower Got the mower out of the garage this morning for the first mow of the season.  I changed the spark plug and air filter.  Sydnie got up really early and started pulling all of the weeds out of the yard.  Yeah for my beautiful wife.  I am really not much of a yard guy so maybe you guys can help me out with a few problems spots in the yard.

  1. There are several spots on the north side of the house where grass is not growing.
  2. There are a couple of large areas of the yard where the soil is squishy.
  3. We still have lots of weeds in the yard.

Leave me some comments on how I can tackle these problems.

    If your next animal rescue was a goat, you wouldn’t have to worry about mowing the grass or pulling weeds…!

    I’d be glad to take a look at the yard, I could make recommendations and then John could be a good friend and make the applications for you LOL. let me know when you have time and we will take a look-seriously and I will help. I had Rich only make a couple of applications of some stuff he picked up at Lowes and his yard looked pretty good last year-you can ask him about it.
