A: Try calling this number: Homedepot.com Customer Care: 1-800-430-3376. They should know when more will come in.
A: This item has to be ordered on The Home Depot website, not available in the store. If you select store pick up the item will be shipped free. It is well worth the price.
A: Yes. Virginia is in the transition zone so cool season grasses, like Kentucky 31, would do fine.
A: I live in California inland it's hot and dry this grass works here but where you live I don't know
A: Get rid of those weeds first. Put down a weed killer in early spring. If you have crabgrass, two weeks after putting down weed killer, put down a pre crabgrass starter fertilizer. Wait about four weeks after applying the weed killer before seeding. Rake out all of the dead grass and weeds before seeding. And cover the seeds with a little top soil. Lightly water the seeds twice a day for about 10 days. Seeds need to remain moist. It is rains, that is perfect.
A: To me, it wouldn't make much sense to simply sow the seeds over weeds. After such sowing, there'll be watering. By doing so, the sprouts (and most will sprout) will have to compete with weeds for resources. And by leaving weeds in place, they'll only continue to multiply. Weeds will grow in the densest of lawns. To ensure better success with grass, I would apply a herbicide (one focused on weeds) killing off the weeds. After the weeds are dead, clean up the debris and prep the soil for your lawn.
A: I have not used my seeds, however, I do not plan to use them as you indicated. I plan to prepare the yard and use straw once the seed has been planted. It appears that you need to use a feed and weed fertilizer before your seed are planted.
A: I would use a weed and feed type fertilizer first. It should kill the weeds in about 10 days then rake to loosen topsoil and then spread your fescue seed for best results. You could do it all at once and not wait but it will be much easier to rake with the weeds dead.
A: Yes. Sowed seed last year over grass & still doing well
A: Hi CD, Thanks for visiting our site! Ky. 31 Fescue is a good choice for your area. It is a durable, fast growing grass that stays green all year. The term, "perennial properties" pertains to plants that die and come back from their own root system. Fescue is not perennial, but it is a permanent lawn grass that can live continuously for years. Overseed to thicken the lawn, since this grass will not spread on its own to fill in the gaps between plants. It is best to plant this grass in the fall, since summer heat is the most stressful season for fescue grass. As the grass germinates, falling leaves need to be removed from the seedlings. I recommend a leaf blower to accomplish this. Thank you for asking, -Travis
A: Yes, I live in GA and found that I had to re-seed after the 1st application, but on the second it yielded a decent return.
A: Owned my house for 38 years and always need to reseed. It does grow back but always requires some reseeding. Treat for White Grubs which eats the roots of all grasses. Pretreat for crabgrass and you still may need to throw weed killer down when you see weeds. Professional Baseball fields and golf courses have an army of people taking care of their lawns. It is only us for our lawn.
