    I've got one major question. What is so bad about cutting fescue grass? I've seen people talk about this on this forum and I just don't quite get it.

    All I cut is fescue. It's not that bad but in the spring when it's lush, the grass bleeds and turns everything green. It also turns to puree when mulched in spring.

    had it at my old house that the previous owner had put down. had one of the best lookin' yards in the subdivision. kind of a pain though in the spring because it was so thick and held a lot of moisture.

    I cut mostly fescue and spring is the only thing bad about it .It strips great it just heavy in the spring.

    I live in a real transition area. Youll have a yard with bermuda in the sunny area and fescue in the shade. Bermuda is just easier to cut, trim, grow etc... with all our heat and drought we have. Maybe fescue does better in cooler/wetter climates. but down here in the southwest, its too high maintenance. just my opinion
