Q.Need to do spring aeration & reseeding of fescue lawn; when should I apply grub treatment? Before or after the aeration? Lime trea
tment? Then timing for weed and feed treatment? Last summer I had a bad accident, so between working and caring for me my husband was barely able to keep up with mowing let alone all the treatments our lawn needed to thrive. Of course, our fescue lawn was overtaken by weeds and Bermuda grass from the two undeveloped lots on either side of us. We were unable to get the aeration and overseeing done last fall so we are attempting to begin the repair of our lawn this spring. We understand that fall would have been the best time to do this but it was not possible. Any advice you can give us regarding the timing of various treatments and amount of water we need to apply (have irrigation system) would be greatly appreciated. We have had conflicting advice from a few sources, so we are totally confused at this point!
