If you want to achieve an average looking lawn, the best advice I can give you is…
NEVER do what my neighbor did and use Roundup to kill broadleaf weeds on your lawn! He thought the stuff I routinely use on my lawn was not working fast enough after I treated his lawn (at my expense), so he took over a gallon and a half of Roundup and nuked his once salvageable turf into oblivion. The sad part is that the kill zone spreads each time it rains and it is moseying over the property line onto my lawn and getting dangerously close to some of my arborvitaes.
Roundup is good for its intended purpose, which is to kill weeds and grass in areas where you want nothing to grow. Read the instructions. Never use Roundup on anything you are not intending to destroy.
