    I've recently had some leveling done to my property.... preparing to build a new home.

    The front "yard" is 165 x 140 feet. The soil is free of any grass at this time due to leveling. The topsoil is dry with lots of "marbles" that don't / won't break up. I don't have a water source at the property and won't for 4 weeks :mad: .

    I have spread 35lb of fescue seed over this area and raked in the seed with a drag hare...... 1" of light rain the next night.

    Should I expect some decent results from the fescue seed (given the lack of available watering). My initial concern is keeping the soil from washing out into the ditch.

    Can I eventually grow a good fescue turf in Louisiana (south)? I really like the look of fescue, and would like to make some nice stripes with my new Dixie Chopper.
