Had septic lines redone last fall and planted fescue seed where the yard was dug up. Now I have two different looks

going on. I actually like the fescue better. Will fescue ever take over the existing grass or do I have to plant fescue seed into the existing grass and hope fescue outgrows the existing grass. Or rent a bobcat and take up the existing grass which might get expensive?

    I would start with overplanting with fescue. It's pretty cheap, and the worst case scenario is that it doesn't take, but you will still have your existing grass.

    Thank you. Is this possible with a pitch fork or do you have to rent a aerator?

    What is your existing grass?

    Mr. Hunt. I dont know. When searching online, the only thing I saw close was bahia and dallisgrass. Not sure if these are considered weeds or grass?

    I don't think you need to rent an aerator. I would just spread the fescue seed and water and fertilize it in. How vigorously is your current grass growing?

    Bahia is definitely a type of grass; dallisgrass would probably be considered a weed. I ask because if you have something like Bermuda or St. Augustine the fescue will never take over.

    The current grass is not really that vigorous of a growing grass. So I might try that and see if it will begin to fill in and take over the bahia grass. Thanks so much for your guys answers
