Would you ever use anything to counteract the road salt that gets plowed
into the yard?

Love your videos and all of the helpful info! I had a question for you.
I’m in central Iowa and my lawn is looking great in most areas with green
starting to shoot straight up. However a few areas look like yours in the
video where it’s matted down and the green isn’t coming through much in
those areas. My issue is that when I tried doing a light raking like you
suggested, it fluffs up a bit but underneath those matted areas it just
looks like mud and not much green at all. Are the shoots of green still
under the ground since the grass was matted and covering or what are your
thoughts? I know a picture would help describe it better.

It was a brutal winter but lucky for us “Omaha, NE” we didn’t have a lot of
snow but bitter cold. I’m talking about 25-30 below. Hopefully first week
of May I’ll start fertilizing “milorganite”

I also have some bare areas not this spring as Ryan described. Lawn was
awesome last year. Lightly raking up the matted down areas really opened up
the bare areas to reveal nothing but dirt underneath! I am thinking I may
have to reseed this spring…

is almost over… good stuff Allyn!

Hey man I like the videos very informative. Do you have any suggestions for
getting grass to grow where the was a carport/shed for years? I’ve tried to
lightly till and plant see but didn’t get any results a big Part of back
yard is just dirt w few sprouts of grass growing. Should I till it all up
and plants seed?

Will it matter if I do this and then it rains heavily and temps drop?

Glad to see your lawn looks as crappy as mine this spring! How dry do you
recommend the ground be before raking? In ohio we are still pretty wet. I
am worried I will pull up too much good grass.

Keep the videos coming Allen…I applied Milorganite around November our
lawn has greened up so nice. I cut it today and added a dose of Milorganite
it keeps the deers away to. Thanks my neighbors looked shocked at the dark
green color of our grass….

Allyn,my lawn looks fantastic since I have been using your program. I had a
30 minute conversation with a guy in my neighborhood about who did my lawn
treatments. He didn’t believe me when I told him that it was all me. He
couldn’t believe how thick it was. He was down in the grass trying to hunt
bare spots! LOL. I really appreciate all your tips. I need to show you a
