    Yes,it's crabgrass.I'm guessing you seeded the fescue in the spring or summer and the crabgrass outgrew the fescue seed.

    IMO, that's exactly what happened.

    Where in the heck did all that crabgrass seed come from? I guess I will use roundup and seed in fall with fescue or seed in spring with bermuda. I will apply a pre emmergant prior to seeding with bermuda. This lawn was hydroseeded by the way.

    Man this really ticks me off...it started to sprout as soon as fescue and killed it!! What a 100% total waste of time!!

    You know the pre-emergent will keep your fescue or bermuda seed from germinating as well,right?
    Seed bermuda when soil temps hit 65 degrees or higher.The warmer the better.
    Seed fescue in the fall.
    The crabgrass seed was already there.When the soil was disturbed,it had a great place to grow.
