I recently bought a house. The backyard is pretty big (and unshaded) - about 4500 square feet. The backyard is pretty much all weeds (clovers, crabgrass) which looks okay when mowed, but looks pretty bad after growing for a week.
What's the best way to replace my lawn with grass? People have suggested bags of 'seed and feed' at Home Depot - to kill off the weeds and drop in new grass seed.
I'd like to start it as soon as I can. I live in the Maryland suburbs, just a few blocks outside of DC. My soil is pretty moist and clay-y.
