Here is my plight. I moved into a new house in the Raleigh, NC area last winter. The yard had been seeded with straw and I figured I'd give it a chance to see what it did. It basically did nothing so the plan was to begin trying to grow grass this fall. I had some hesitancy as the drought continued but finally by early November took some action. I had gotten a soil test and took their recommendations and put down some lime. I had done that in early October. In early November I had the entire yard aerated (even double aerated in some areas).......lots of plugs. I then put down 18-24-12 (recommended by Lesco guy) and Lesco transition Fescue seed along with the 18-24-12. We've watered it regularly for two weeks, and haven't seen one blade of grass. What I'm hoping is that because we did it so late in the season that we'll be hard pressed to see any growth until possibly spring. I'm hoping this is the case cause I would have expected to see at least some growth after two weeks under normal circumstances. I just hope all our work/money was not for naught. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
