About

“Do-It-Yourself Lawn” is for the lawn care beginner, the homeowner with limited or no knowledge of lawn care. This site exists to help you take the guesswork out of growing a great lawn.

The information on this blog is designed to help you grow a healthy, beautiful, weed free lawn – especially if you’ve never done it before. The information provided here is basic. However, this basic, beginner’s information is missing at most of the “big box” stores, where you’ll often find people wandering the aisles desperately looking for answers they most likely will never find. Maybe you’ve been one of those people.

You’ve got questions; find simple solutions here. Can’t find the answer? Just reach out.

Common Questions

  • How do I get rid of these weeds?
  • What kind of fertilizer should I use?
  • What’s the right type of grass seed for my yard?
  • What’s the best way to eliminate moles?
  • Are there products I can use on my lawn that are safe for my pets?

These questions, and many more, are common. And there are good answers.

Why “Do-It-Yourself Lawn?”

Perhaps you are brand new to lawn care. You just purchased your first home and you have no idea where to start. The local lawn care company has knocked on your door and offered to take care of everything for a certain price.

  • Is it a good deal?
  • Can they be trusted?
  • Can you do it yourself for less money?
  • Will it look as good as if they’d done it?

Am I able?

You have no idea where to start and it all seems so overwhelming. 

Can I afford it?

Or maybe your budget is your primary concern. You can’t afford to hire someone (or don’t want to) and you’re wondering if you can actually grow a nice lawn without taking food off the table? 

Is it safe?

Or maybe you’re concerned about doing things naturally. You’ve got children or pets who play out in the yard and you don’t want chemicals or other lawn care products harming them. But you still want a thick, lush lawn. Is it possible to have both?

I just need answers

Or maybe you’ve simply got some questions about certain aspects of taking care of your lawn and you’re not finding answers.
