Reseeding the Lawn - The Spring Edition

We reseeded the lawn last Fall, and it is looking good! Ian has already had to mow it twice this year, and it is due for another trimming soon. The new grass is growing in clumps that are a bit distracting at the moment, but I think they will fill in and grow together into a nice full lawn by mid-summer.

Ian sprayed down the dandelions, wild strawberries and purple flower-things this weekend with a weed killer spray. I know, it's naughty to spray chemicals on your lawn, but I don't have the patience or time to pick all those weeds out by hand. We don't make a habit of spraying the lawn very often. I hope this new grass helps smother the weeds out, but I'm not sure lawns work that way. I don't have enough time to invest in the lawn, so what will be will be!

It's looking really good! We have some holes that we are trying to fill in too. We reseeded and aerated last fall and it's slowly filling in.

We still have SO MANY weeds in the yard that it isn't even funny. I think there are more weeds than grass actually!
