Ok, So I've been trying to follow your advice. I Mow high (accept for the one time my mower broke and I had to pay the landscaper $60 bucks to do it) I tracked down Ringer Lawn Restore (Not Easy) and I applied it as directed. I water infrequently. Still my lawn looks terrible. I've accepted the dandelions and the clover (i think its clover anyway) but now I'm getting brown spots too. I've uploaded a few photos. Im in CT which I think is zone 6. Please any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much Bob
I haven't tested it yet so im not sure. Ive called the extension office but its a weekend house so Im rarely there during the week. I will get it done over the summer however.

Robert, your lawn doesn't look like the grass is being mowed high enough. At least, that is what it looks like. Maybe it is just not growing.
I am by no means an expert, and am new here myself, but I can tell you that the difference in my lawn has been dramatic. And in such a short time too. Outside of the watering for the initial reseeding of the bare spots, I have not watered my lawn yet this year. I am also in Zone 6 in NY.
Here is the link to my story, if you have the time to check it out. Look at the pics of before (May2nd) ,and after (May28), and read what I did. It wasn't that hard to do.
Hi, Well this is not much of a problem. Well before I could come to any conclusion please answer the following questions: Do you fertilizing your lawn repeatedly? Apply pesticides, insecticides or fungicides frequently? Pour excess water?
