Try it out, you've got nothing to lose, except poisoning your family with herbicides and pesticides.
I'm with you. I put bigger gauge wheels on my deck to add some height. I also never put any chemicals on the lawn, neither herbicides nor fertilizers. Spreading toxins in the environment just to select grasses over broadleaf plants just rubs me the wrong way. As far as fertilizer and water... I have what I call a Darwinian lawn. Survival of the fittest! We have Creeping Charlie and purple violets and later in the summer some dandelions.
With all of the rain we've had, the grass is growing like a jungle.
