Lawns and Quick Grass
My lawn is becoming over run with quack grass. I'm
considering total kill. Before I do so I would be interested in your
opinion on overseeding. Will this choke out the quack and leave me with
a healthy lawn. Everything which I've been able to read up on states the
only way is to kill all growth and start over again.
No, overseeding with lawn grass will probably not get rid of the
weeds. The weeds are fast-growing and better competitors so you need to
deal with the weeds first.
