Fescue

Fescue is referred to as a Cool Season turf grass. Fescue thrives during the spring, early summer and fall months in the Charlotte climate. The summer months are very stressful for Fescue.  Depending on the severity of the summer we are experiencing, it may even enter a state of dormancy. It is essential to aerate and reseed Fescue every fall season. This process is what helps the lawn establish its lush green appearance in the spring.

Round 1:

  • Pre-emergent, weed control and fertilizer application.
  • Pre- emergent will control summer weeds and crabgrass; weed control will kill any weeds that are present. High Nitrogen Fertilizer will stimulate growth as the lawn enters its prime growing season.

Round 2:

  • Second Pre-emergent application, Fertilizer and post emergent weed control.
  • High Nitrogen fertilizer will provide essential nutrients as this is the time of year when Fescue is thriving. Weed control will ensure your lawn is free of ANY weed activity.

Round 3:

  • Application consisting of root-strengthening, low Nitrogen fertilizer and post emergent weed control as needed.

Round 4:

  • Application consisting of root-strengthening, low Nitrogen fertilizer and post emergent weed control as needed.

Round 5:

  • Application consisting of lime and weed control as needed.
  • Lime will help prepare soil for aeration and seeding, also looking out for late summer weed activity.

Round 6: Aeration and Overseeding

  • Aeration, seed and starter fertilizer. Usually takes place in late September thru October.
  • This process will help rejuvenate the lawn for the following Spring.

Round 7:

  • Fertilizer and weed control application.
  • Specially blended fertilizer will stimulate growth of new seedlings.
