I currently maintain several properties which were seeded with a new cultivar of fine tall fescue. One account was resently fertilized by a Chemlawn. Well to make a long story short, the fescue at this particular account ended up growing about 12 inches a week for several weeks and I was the one who was choping 9 inches of the blade off every time I mowed the lawn. Now, about 5 weeks after the application, just about all of the fescue is dead and brown.<p>Any suggestions as to why this happend??<p>By the way.....the lawn was also seeded with perrenial rye and bluegrass. These two seed varieties are doing fine now. However, the lawn consisted on mostly fine tall fescue.<p>Also, why would someone even consider seeding a lawn with fescue??? I my opinon, fescue looks like krap when compared to perrenial rye and bluegrass. It also requires more fertilizer and water to keep it green and growing all throughout the year.<p>What's so great about fescue lawns??? NOTHING. THEY'RE TERRIBLE.
