    For those of you that deal mostly with KBG lawns, I've got a question for you. When you have a customer with clumps of tall fescue scattered throughout their lawn, do you go through the trouble of digging up the dead clumps after you've killed them with a non-selective and then slice-seed, or do you just kill the clumps with non-select and then slice-seed right over the now dead clumps of tall fescue?

    By the way, I always like to mow any lawn I'm going to slice-seed nice and short for obvious reasons.

    I wouldn't dig them up, but I have taken a weed-eater to them and "whacked" them down to the soil!

    You can use Certainty from Monsanto. It isn't cheap but it works very well. Just do it before you seed the new lawn in.

    yeah, or the slice seeder itself will do a pretty good job of whacking them

    Certainity doesn't hurt bluegrass--but it kills ryegrass. So if you want to get rid of your rye...
