The heat kills my fescue every year(don't have very many, but they don't want to change). I was wondering if adding an extra spring app(may) or fall app(Oct) would help to develop a stronger plant that would with stand the heat.
IMO a fall app will help to create a stronger plant..
also just my opinion.. If you want to help grow stronger plants in the spring I would aerate it in 2 directions probally now so the soil settles by march/april (depending on the type) and hit it with a fert in the spring along with some cutlass to remove top growth and focus it twords root developement
