    Uhhh Honey? It looks like the neighbor's dog has been urinating on the lawn again.






    Yeah, that sounds good. That's my story.

    Thanks for all the timely replys. First off I used Pronto Big N' Tur 41% glyphosate, 2 1/2 gallons of it in 40 gallons of water. I was in a rush, not thinking and thought I grabbed the 2 1/2 gallon white plastic container that had the Gordon's weed and feed in it. From the rear the containers looked the same. I need some help with what equiment I should use to reseed, overseeder etc, I do have a John deere 4115 tractor. On a side note the wife helped me spray she drove the golf cart pulling sprayer. I believe my lawn is fescue, I'm out in the country of the eastern panhandle of West Virginia so it could be orchard grass. Anyway what should I do? Thanks Larry

    Rake it, punch it, then whirly-spread a few hundred pounds of seed. It would be nice to roll over it and "set" the seeds, but it'll usually sprout without that step. Cover with straw would be awesome, but you'd not like the price of doing so.

    Spray with hydro seed is also quick and does a great job.

    If your mix is 50-70% annual rye, you'll have a quick sprout and green cover. It will look green very, very quickly. You'd be mowing it by June 1st. The rye will die out next hard frost in fall, leaving only the fescue or blue grass you mixed in the seeding formula.

    Yeah, I use that stuff from TSC. and it might be dead and lifeless...But safe to re-seed...I feel your grief, I KILLED a mature Canning Pear tree in our front yard, because I sprayed a vine near it with Round-Up. I still hear about it everytime i pick-up a sprayer.. Only this time"Don't you dare go near my Flowers"???
    Okay, Legal disclaimer: Old but not senile, definitely do not have the answer to everything!

    Thanks again for the replys. I think I will wait until next week end and rent a 6 ft overseeder and put tall fescue in. I'm told the overseeder is the way to go since it puts the seeds directly in the soil. I do have a york rake and 5ft disc but I'm told with a overseeder I wouldn't have to take those steps. I hope that information is correct. Any one with any experience using one would be helpful. Again thanks to all. Larry

    Brown Lawn??? I managed to do that once.

    It actually worked out well. Spread lime and fertilizer, raked, overseeded, raked again and watered well. The new lawn came up very nicely with relatively few weeds And within a year looked real good.

    Sounds to me like it a GOOD TIME to catch up on some of those HONEY DOO'S
