Dear Expert: The lawn along my driveway, sidewalk, and street is brown, thin and full of weeds. What can I do to help repair it?
A: These areas commonly become damaged during the winter. Usually it is caused by snow pack, salt and sand. You can try over-seeding the areas in the spring to help thicken them up. There are many varieties of seeds to choose from, just make sure to follow proper seeding guidelines for the best outcome. You can also follow a treatment plan during the spring, summer and fall for weed prevention and fertilization. This should help regenerate the area.
