    I overseeded this year to try and revive poor grass under a 30+ year old sycamore tree that I took out last summer.

    I overseed using a seed combination of tall fescue and bluegrass. In the areas that had more clay than topsoil, it seems the fescue took over and left the bluegrass behind.

    What pesticide could I use to kill the fescue and leave the bluegrass alone?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, there is no Lesco nearby (110 miles away is the closest). Any other suggestions?

    Corsair is it. Contact corporate sales (800) 321-5325 for a delivery or find another Riverdale distributor. Be careful. It also controls Ryegrass. On a positive note, Corsair is the best on Violets too.

    110 miles is about what I drive to lesco. why not convert the whole area to turf type fescue? it's better in shade than blue grass, better in the sun to in my opinion.

    chlorsulfuron will control tall fescue.

    Corsair is chlorsulfuron. It is UPS shippable with a credit card.
