yard full of stickers

So is you live just outside of Austin TX in the hill country you would know we have a whole ray of problems from deer, rock hard land,drout,thronie cedar trees,to the wrost stickers on the planet. It's no fun when the kids can't go outside to play because it like a war zone. What to do when your leasing a place but you still want a nice yard for the family????? HELP!

Well, this year there's not much you can do -- or that you SHOULD do, given the season is winding down.

Next year, apply a crabgrass preventer + fertilizer, which will keep a lot of the weeds and stickers out. Then, water the lawn, if you have an adequate water supply. This alone will keep the yard much more hospitable for the kids.
