I've had our house for 2 years now and the first spring I put out fescue to see how it would do in eastern NC. The first year it thinned out when the summer hit b/c of hot summer days and drought. This past fall I overseeded again after trying to get rid of some bermuda that is in the lawn. I watered everyday for the first week then cut back to watering a couple times a week. I got the water bill and . So now I'm thinking I may want to put seed some bermuda this year since its going to be hard to kill the bermuda in fescue. I don't think bermuda needs as much water but does like fertilizer once a month in the growing season. For the winter months I will over seed with annual ryegrass. My only real concern is I have two trees in the front yard and I'm not sure how much shade I will have for the bermuda not to grow. Any help or insight?
