My lawn is in rough shape due to me cutting too low and not watering enough during the heat wave a couple months ago. Then we started to get crab grass and I pretty much gave up after that.
EDIT: it wasn't just crab grass - we had grubs too.
Anywho, lawn is in godawful shape right now. I put grub stuff down in the fall and hopefully that did the job. I don't see any birds picking at the grass like I used to. This weekend I am going to rake up all the dead grass in the front and maybe dig down 3-4 inches into the loam and wheelbarrow it all out back. Then hopefully get some new loam delivered next weekend. I have no idea how much to order though.
Also I bit the bullet and plunked down $2500 for the irrigation plus another $450 in plumbing work. They are coming Tuesday. When thats all done I have to repair the rotting fence in the backyard.
Owning a house sucks.
