Best Answer

Kentucky Bluegrass will have more density in the blade and be a thicker grass, but not by much. Bluegrass also requires cooler weather and more shade, so if you live in a hot, dry, arid climate I would use Fescue. No one will ever know.

Keep in mind that there is more than one type of Fescue.

How many pounds of grass seed to cover one acre?

Calculate the square footage of your yard. Determine which type of seed you will be using. There are some variations in amount of seed needed depending on the type of seed used. Some common types are Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue. Kentucky Bluegrass requires two to three pounds for each 1,000 square feet. Tall Fescue requires six to eight pounds for each 1,000 square feet. Calculate the total pounds of seed needed. Divide the total square feet of your lawn by 1,000. Then multiply that number by the pounds of seed needed per 1,000 square feet.

What herbicide kills Bermuda grass but not fescue?

Ornamec over the top by PBI/ Gordan will kill Bermuda in fescue & Zoysia grass. Using it on Fescue is best done in the spring when Bermuda starts actively growing & just before dormancy in the fall. Follow the directions carefully & do not over mix as it can kill fescue. The herbicide will put fescue in stress, but will come back green in about 2weeks or less. Be sure to apply to a healthy stand of fescue that is not already stressed from low water, extreme heat, & soil pH levels.
