Scott's has a lawn care program for every region in the country. Go online and type in your address and they will send you an email when it is time to apply a new application. If you follow the program you will get good results. The biggest mistakes people make with lawn care is over fertilizing and lack of water. Sufficient water makes a lawn deep green and it will change color over night. Mine looks good. Not the best in the neighborhood, but good.
