I've come to the conslusion that I really don't want fescue anymore due its instability in the zone (z7 N. Alabama), high water bills, disease, and the constant creep of crabgrass and bermuda. Despite having one of the nicer fescue lawns in the neighborhood and not wanting a brown lawn in the winter, I've concluded that I want to make a transition to bermudagrass. From what I've read, Triangle is a good blend for this area and will yield good results. Questions are: 1) Can I make a suttle transition (over the next year or 2) to bermuda by overseeding in the spring? (Note: I dug up enough bermuda to be replaced by 3 palettes of fescue this last spring and I have even more this year). 2) Is Triangle a blend anyone can recommend? 3) Do I need to kill off the fescue first? Or by overseeding bermuda and neglecting/abusing the fescue (reduce watering and cutting shorter), can I make a successful transition to bermuda? 4) If I need to till it up first, what would the recommendation be for either sodding or seed or hydromulching it (.5 acres)? 5) Can it be tilled up without trashing my sprinkler system? 6) What soil preparation should be considered before seeding or sodding? (clay) Any assistance would be most appreciated. Thanks to all.
