Newbie - Help with NC Drought Damage
Hello everyone. I have posted a few times, but the weather has finally cooled here in NC and I'm ready to rescue my lawn. The drought this year was the worst on record and due to the mandatory water restrictions, my lawn is horrible. I have some pictures, but I'm not sure how to post them. Basically, the lawn is brown and strawlike. There are weedy grasses (crabgrass) growing, but no broadleaf weeds. My neighbors bermuda grass has taken over 25% of my front lawn (we both want it gone). I have an irrigation system and am allowed to water 2x a week. There is some green fescue that is growing in a shady part, along with a blade or two everywhere else. I plan on aerating and slit seeding next week as a start, but I'm sure there are things I need to do before that. So, I am asking for your help and appreciate any suggestions! And if anyone can tell me how to post pictures, I will.
Thank you all so much,
