I have an acre. I have a very nice lawn, and spend tons of time keeping it looking that way.
four years ago I happened to keep the receipts for my yard chemicals from home depot and it was over $1500. This is including grub stuff, pre-emergence all the way to the fall fertilizer and hundreds of dollars in seed (for over seeding)
Switched to a company out of flint that my dad has used for years and I pre-pay $610 and they do all 6 feedings including aeration and over seeding with kentucky bluegrass.
My yard looks exactly the same color wise, and the over seeding has made it extremely thick. if I notice weeds, I call them and they show up the next day to spot treat. I honestly don't know how they can make money doing this, as it is almost a third of the cost that I paid for the material by itself.
