So Im here in Charlotte NC and been waiting for a while to address this I understand now is the time to get my fescue seeds down my yard is basically a mix of weeds of all types. there are some bumpy spots that are rough when I mow it I am going to rent a power rake this weekend and loosen the entire yard up what plan of attack should I take? the soil will be loose from raking can I simply broadcast 7-8 lbs per 1000 sq ft? what starter fert will I need? should I put down straw? when and what herbicides will I need in the following weeks or just wait till spring?
