It didn't really come up lol. I have a couple of young boys, we stayed overnight at Splash Lagoon in Erie PA. He just asked us how it was and waved us through. It's all perfectly legal to bring back and I was within my limit dollar wise anyway.

Good luck to all. I've given up on this until someone finds a solution that works. Seems like a black hole for money at this point for me lol

This is where I got to last year just by using proper weed control. I did a pretty decent reseeding as there was a huge bare patch back there. Also watered and mowed at proper heights. This year, the Milorganite should really thicken it up and deepen the green.

Really? Is it not available in the GTA or is it that much cheaper? What is considered illegal then?

I have animals digging into my lawn for bugs and shit in the backyard. Going to give up grass and turn that area into a flower garden.

It's illegal to sell the weed control products with 2-4d in it in Ontario. The CBSA enforces federal laws not provincial. It's not illegal to bring personal amounts over the border. The Milorganite is an organic fertiliser not available up here. It's really good for your soil and contains iron which gives your grass that deep blueish green colour.

Add more top soil....the birds are going to eat all your seed.

Did you remember to fertilize a week before?

That backyard needs a complete overhaul. Something like that would be best accomplished in the early fall when temperatures start to cool down. If you can get your hands on some Round Up I'd nuke the whole thing using a hand sprayer. Then drop some starter fertilizer, top soil, seed and peat moss over top. Water it diligently and mow high (3"+ when it comes in).

I started watching The Lawn Care Nut last year and followed a lot of his tips. It completely transformed my lawn. He used to be based in Indiana and has a lot of very good cool-season grass videos on there.

Lawn Care Nut

The only thing you truly need from the US is a proper weed killer with 2, 4-D (Ortho Weed B Gone is what I use). I also pickup Milorganite, Round Up for serious problems and a couple of other goodies that aren't absolute necessities. The keys are proper weed control, fertilization timing and amounts, WATER and proper mowing height. The last two being the most crucial.

I have an ugly ass Blue Spruce in my front yard which is hell for the lawn. Would love to cut the damn thing down and give the lawn a fighting chance.

Yup, I started watching him. I need to get some 2,4-D somehow. Unfortunately I won't be driving down to the states anytime soon. My whole backyard is getting destroyed.

$50 that's it? Good deal. Pre-emergent herbicides are pretty important as well, fucking weeds!
