    I am mainly curious about what schedule I should use in applying these products.

    I seeded Tall Fescue a month ago, along with some starter fertilizer, and am about to mow for the first time. I live in Central NC (Raleigh) if that matters.

    I have noticed some ground Ivy growing so I was planning on using some sort of weed and feed product for that (or is it too soon since using the starter fertilizer)

    And I know I'm supposed to use some pre-emergent in the coming months, but I also want to overseed as early as possible in the Spring. I was also planning on putting down some lime over the winter...

    Any advice on how to manage all these "needs." How long will the pre-emergent prevent new grass from growing?

    Also how tall should I leave my fescue over the winter?

    Thanks for any advice!

    :laugh: Good luck with your answer on that one... :laugh:

    You might want to research that one on your own. You know look up the chemical name then research what makes it function.

    Have you asked a local expert about how to apply fertilizer and what kind would work best on your yard?
    I found this source online. They were able to help me and my wife answer questions no one else seemed to no the answer to regarding fertilizers, applying fertilizers, weeding and lawn care. Maybe they will be able to help you too?
