New house to me. Fescue lawn with some bermuda. Previous owner didn't put
out pre-emergent last winter, and a family illness prevented us from dealing
with crabgrass as it emerged. Now, there are copious amounts of crabgrass
all over the lawn (the lawn is ~1/2 acre). I figure fully 10% of the area is
I'm not against overseeding this fall with fescue, but I don't see how the
fescue is going to come up through the areas that are choked with crabgrass,
and there is no way I know of to deal with that much crabgrass without
nuking the entire lawn.
If I try and overseed next spring (not the greatest of ideas), I won't be
able to use pre-emergent to block the crabgrass from re-appearing.
What am I missing? Other than a complete rennovation, is there a reasonable
solution that will lead to a nice lawn next summer?
Thanks in advance...
