    Not sure how bad your orchardgrass is but you could always go around with a chemical glove on and rub round up on a single leaf. I'm sure that would take care of it...

    There's just too much of it. I tried pulling it up but only got some of it out.
    We had a severe drought here last year and it got established. There were areas of Tall Fescue that died completely. I have five trees that have died from the dry Summer last year that will have to be removed.
    It may take years to get a good lawn again.
    Thanks again to everyone who read and contributed to this thread.
    I'll keep you posted as I find more info.
    Rob

    Spot spray r-up, wait 7 to 10 days re seed with desired turf. Mow approx. 3 time, then apply pre emergent thats not part of the sim/ family.

    (wi) Roots,
    There's just too much to spot treat. I'd say 30% of my front and side lawn is Orchardgrass. And worse yet, my neighbor across the street has a lawn full of weeds. He does absolutely nothing but cut it. And when he does, all the seeds from the weeds come over into my lawn.

    I'm not real sure where Newton is, but in Garner/Raleigh area, you'd be better off throwing money in the road than trying to reseed right now (unless you can water it every day through the summer). Just gets to hot for it. I know what you mean about the drought though - when you're down to 45 days of water reserves in your local lakes, you know it's getting bad. Thank god for all of the rain this spring!

    Good Morning AnGreen,
    Newton is 40 miles northwest of Charlotte. I think yall had more rain last Summer than we did.
    I'll definitely wait until September to resow.
    Thanks.
