I have a duplex/condo that I have done for 7 years. Mainly on side but for 2 or so years the other side also. The various owners must have 'scaped it themselves. The side I have done the longest is bluegrass/rye and looks great when finished. The other is fescue and looks like hell when I am done. I treat them as one lawn as they run together in back. I have told Mrs. Fescue I will have too charge more if I must treat the jobs seperate. Both = 3000 sq ft. This year Mrs. Fescue has talked Mr. Bluegrass into finding someone new. I mow both at 2 1/2". Mr Blue likes his that way. Mrs. Fescue is always griping. Sometimes I mow hers twice a little shorter (1 3/4") the second time,bag or mulch, and still it looks bad. I think I will pass on fescue lawns from now on. Any fescue tips out there for us nothern state guys?
