I live 20 miles south of Raleigh, NC. I've been told I'm kinda in that "in between" spot where you can grow either Fescue or a warm weather grass. I have a new house and the yard was seeded/strawed which didn't do anything. Last fall I aerated/limed/seeded with fescue and some definitely took, but not as much as I would have hoped. I put down pre-immergent first week in March this year but I have gobs of weeds still. I'd say 50% of the people in my neighborhood have Fescue, 50% have warm weather grass. I've been told that Bermuda is pretty much maintenance free so I'm thinking of basically tearing up my yard piece by piece (as I can afford it) and seeding with bermuda. I want to kill what's there now, drag the top layer of dirt to loosen it, and then put some nice topsoil on top. Then seed with bermuda. I just want to get opinons on fescue/bermuda in the area which I live. And also, I've heard that bermuda seed is much finer then fescue so difficult to put down with your normal everyday spreader. Any suggestions on how to put it down?? I'd like to sod it but financially that's not in the cards. Any input would be appreciated.
