    Hi, I have an account that has mrytle in the beds and one bed has really bad grass in it, fescue. I have treated it 3x with Fulisade II with no luck. the bed did have other types of grass but the fulisade took care of it but not the fescue. Any clues on how to get rid of it or something else to use.
    thanks

    Round-up applied with a paint brush or a pipe-wick.

    That's exactly what I was thinking!

    Spot with Gly or use a weed mop.

    Poast is a grass killer. It works on quack with a couple applications.

    One option is to allow the tall fescue to take over. This same thing ocurred at a local mall. They originally had large beds of crown vetch, but thistles and tall fescue invaded it over the years. Now it's all tall fecue, and it looks much "cleaner".
