affordable lawn care

Asked October 19, 2020, 12:21 PM EDT

Hi,

My son bought a house a couple years ago. The yard is complete weeds. It has been difficult to get anything going. I am looking for an inexpensive company that would come in and put in a lawn either by seed or maybe even sod. Are there startup companies or schools that are more affordable?
We did use a lawn service to spray the weeds over the summer. Would like to get it ready for Spring or plant seed over the winter. Any suggestions? I am in Jefferson County and my son is in Adams County.

I can't recommend a specific company, but there is some advice and selecting a company:

When you talk about difficult to get going, I am wondering what are your son's irrigation practices. I think the first step would be to evaluate what type of grass you currently have to see if reseeding is even an option. Check this article here:
