A season for Fescue: Autumn’s favorite grass.
1. Get a Soil Test
3. Time to Seed.
OK, aeration is done? Spread some seed. We like to see you over-seed between September and no later than November 1st. Cool season grasses like our fescue and rye don’t spread like Bermuda and zoysia and need to be seeded every year to help keep them thick. In general when you overseed , 6lbs to 8lbs per 1000ft2 is a good number.
Not a lot of nitrogen. We recommend a 13-13-13 and a 50lb bag should cover around 5000ft2 to 8000ft2.
5. Don't forget to water!
We normally have enough rain but Fall and Spring is when your cool season grass likes to grow.
6. Mow (of course).
Finally, the never ending mowing. Our recommendation is to mow at the higher setting of 3.5″ or even 4″
When you’re all finished, all that’s left is adding a little fire pit and lawn chair for those nice Fall and Spring evenings!
