How can I establish a lawn that has turned to weed and undergrowth?

I got a really good deal on this property in South Florida, zone 9, but the lawn is nothing but dry and new weeds.

Where do I begin to start a new lawn without hiring a professional? Slow easy steps are fine with me.

    Keep spraying with weed killer – when new growth appears again spray again. Then have yard dug over – lay fresh loamy soil and have seeded keeping water up to it until it is 4-5 cms long. Keep kids and pets off until established. Cut high always leaving 4-5 cms (min 3 inches) growth. Good luck – I’ve done it. It will take you a few months but worth the wait.

    Consult with an agent at the cooperative extension office to see what grass will grow best or if you should sod. Either way you go with seed or sod, you will need to spray to kill the weeds that are there a few times. Till it up and rake out the dead growth and spray again to get the ones you missed. At this point it might be a good idea to install a pop up sprinkler system. Then seed or sod. In your zone it would be best to do this during the fall as not to scorch your new lawn in the heat of the summer. Good luck.

    Get a pack of dogs & watch them play for a couple of months. What’s there will be gone soon! A bird feeder with mullet feed & the birds will reseed a lush green lawn . It takes a little while but it will grow in thick . Where it’s thin move some from where it’s thick or unwanted! This works will in my yard but you hasten the process by spreading the seed yourself. Birds are fantastic to watch & enjoy so are dogs

    I must express some thanks to you for bailing me out of this difficulty. After looking out through the online world and obtaining proposals which were not powerful, I believed my entire life was gone. Being alive minus the answers to the problems you’ve fixed by means of this website is a crucial case, as well as those that would have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. The training and kindness in touching a lot of things was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the skilled and sensible guide. I won’t be reluctant to suggest the website to any individual who should get care on this area.

    I don’t usually say this, although this post is outstanding. I have been browsing Yahoo and google all day for a respectable post on the toxic dump of duplicated and thieved information that the Web has become and then I finally come to this, this website is the breath of refreshing air that I needed this morning.
