Killing Weeds and Grass
We moved into a new construction house last June. I put a fairly thick load of fescue seed in the front yard, which is west facing. Because the grass had to be planted so much before we moved in I could not keep it watered enough. Late last summer and fall we ended up with what are clumps of weeks with some grass throughout.
This year I want to kill the weeds and plant more seed. I also want to till the soil up some to help with the seeding.
Should I till first (not a complete stripping of all plant life, just, loosening the soil), then apply broadleaf weed killer, wait, then put down grass seed? I am afraid if I put down the weed killer first, then till I will stir up more weeds.
Wish I could do sod, but, not in our price range right now!
