    If you want to have a fescue lawn in ATL, you better have an irrigation system and hope we don't have another drought. Tilling is a bad idea for preparing a lawn site. It takes years to fix.

    The only thing about using pre on winter annuals is it conflicts(preemergent wins) if you are overseeding with your fall aeration.

    alot easier to kill off the fescue. overseed the burmunda with prennial rye.

    you are in the transition zone. this area is the hardest area of the u s to grow a healthy fescue lawn due to the unpredictable weather patterns. look around you will notice more and more burmunda and zoyzias lawns ever year

    if you insist on fescue, sprinkler system is a must and higher mowing and fungicides
