Homeowners with cool-season lawns, such as tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass, have an opportunity to give their lawns a boost this fall. Cool-season lawns that have thin spots from the hot, dry summer will benefit from an overseeding, as well as an application of fertilizer. K-State Research and Extension agent for Johnson County, Dennis Patton, says choosing quality grass seed is the first step in successfully planting or overseeding cool-season lawns. He explains how to decipher grass seed labels to prevent getting seed that’s contaminated with orchardgrass or rough bluegrass. He also covers the “best practices” for applying grass seed and fertilizer to cool-season lawns.
