Alright here is my situation. I have approx 63,000 sq. ft of yard in Virginia that I want to seed and make look good. I moved into the house last year and last fall I brought in a big slit seeder that I pulled behind a tractor and seeded the lawn, then followed up with a broadcast spreader. This spring the lawn looked great, nice and green, hardly any weeds. Then we got hit with a pretty severe drought and everything went downhill. I tried watering the lawn but since I am on well water and we didnt get a drop of rain for over 5 weeks I kinda gave up on the watering. I want to try to reseed this fall and I am looking for some good advice. Info on my lawn, the soil is poor. It is a sandy soil and according to the soil test I had done, it requires 105/lbs of lime for every 1000/sq. ft. Then it recommends 50lbs of a 1-2-1 fertilzer every 1000/sq. ft. Second problem, as it sits now the yard is full of bermuda and what appears to be crabgrass and some other type of weed I can't identify. I have gotten some decent rain over the last few weeks and a little of the fescue bounced back. My plan of action is to apply a herbicide in the next week to kill off the weeds and hopefully the bermuda. Then I was going to aerate after about two weeks and apply the lime at 50/lbs per 1000/sq ft and all of the fert. Wait about a week and then rent a slit seeder and seed the lawn with TTTF. Does this sound like a good plan of action? Am I to late in the season to kill the weeds and reseed the lawn? Should I bother planting the Tall Fescue in my area, with a large amount in my lawn and in both of my neighbors lawns?Is this a realistic goal or am I fighting a losing battle? What should I use for a herbicide? Roundup or can your recommend something at Lesco I can use? I want the lawn to look good and have nice thick grass, but at the same time I am on a somewhat limited budget, so bringing in a skid steer and digging the whole yard up is out of the question. I figured the lime, fert, seed, and seeder will run me about $1,000 which is pushing it a little. Also to the yard is very rough and bumpy. Any ideas on how to correct that, I dont think the little pull behind rollers will do the trick, but I may be wrong. I would greatly appreciate any help the memebers at lawnsite could give me.
