I live in zone 8, Charlotte, NC. My question is, it seems that fescue is harder and harder to control with brown patch, weeds ect. down here. Do you think that we are too far south for fescue, (as far as maintenance goes) versus Zoysia? I can overseed with annual rye this fall, then sprig it in march. I believe I would be able to have less maintenance as well as expense in the long run and it would look much much better. Any thoughts?
