    I am currently trying to grow grass under a huge bradford pear with no luck. I live in KY and now it has gotten down to the mid. 40's and I don't know if I have any choice but to wait until spring to seed. I did get a good stand of grass this spring but burned it with a pre-m.(i know it was stupid and i deserve the mud front yard)
    Any ideas or advice would be great

    thanks

  2. use a fine fescue mix , maybe with a little bluegrass 5-10%

    GO AHEAD A SEED NOW, FESCUE WILL GERMINATE LATE WINTER, before you proably would seed in spring

    what does germinate, will be stronger than spring planted, and withstand summer stress

    if to thin, spring overseed

    what do the soil test say

  4. fine fescue will germinate in the coolest temps of the desirable pernament grass.

    also have the best shade tolerance
