Tall Fescue is a very popular turfgrass in much of North Carolina. We recommend core aeration and overseeding of tall fescue in the fall. Spring is the second best time to do this. However, it is generally best to do a pre-emergent application in the spring to help prevent crabgrass & other weeds. This is not an option if you wait until spring.
Our aeration & overseeding begins at $180. We use top rated seed proven for a variety of sunlight exposure, from sun to shade, and we do not use seed that has weed seed.
