Overseeding winter rye with spring fescue...

Posted by travelergt4 z7 GA (My Page) on

Howdy all,
We had 2 residential installation projects this past fall that didn't get going until it was too late and too cold to create turf by seeding in fescue (sod wasn't in their budgets). So, we seeded with Rye and they had a nice winter lawn. However, now we must go in and seed the fescue. Do we do a chemical kill of all the rye then do the fescue seeding, or do we just mow it real short then fescue seed? Any help is appreciated! We work in Atlanta, GA.
