In 2001 I had a pretty nice 2 1/2 acre fescue lawn. Moles were a problem but were controlled with juicy fruit chewing gum. The drought was long and hard in 2002. Moles were everywhere and I could not make a dent in them. I had a grass come up that was very dense and spread rapidly, choking out most of the fescue. My local golf course greenskeeper called it Johnson grass and said the only way to kill it was with roundup. At any rate, the johnson grass pretty well took over the lawn. Patches of it everywhere. It also went dormant in the fall. When it went dormant I noticed that the bare ground looked like it was dug up. When the fall rain came I discovered that I had grubs everywhere. They would even work their way up on the concrete porch and leave their slimey trails everywhere before they died. I have talked to just about everyone in my local area and do not put much faith in what I have found out. I live in a rural area. I would like to get rid of the grubs, johnson grass (or whatever it is) and moles. I would like to know if I should stay with fescue or change to another type of grass. As we have a lot of flower beds and gardens, I would like to stay away from aggressive running grasses like bemurda and such. Could anyone please shed a little light on this disaster?
