    Tall fescue problem

    I thought it was crabgrass, but found out it is tall fescue.

    A herbicide called TFC (tall fescue control) looked like my only hope, but it was taken off the market...I think.

    Anyone know how to get rid of it besides Round-Up or digging hundreds of holes in my yard?

    Thanks in advance

    as enlightening as this is, does this really deserve its own thread?

    I wonder if that's what I have also.

    What if it was a thread about Harrison Barnes having a tall fescue problem in his yard?

    well that's another story altogether, isn't it? Or perhaps if a U of I football player got drunk, punched out a bus driver, and then passed out onto a patch of tall fescue... we might have 3 or 4 threads about it.

    I was going to hijack the weed thread, but thought it might offend the original poster.

    Use a painting sponge and round up the blades.
