kentucky fescue to Bermuda grass

I had planted Kentucky Fescue, not realizing that was the package I had picked up. My intention was to plant Bermuda. How do I correct this problem? I have 2 inch tall grass already coming up from the fescue.

How much do you hate the fescue? You can simply overseed with Bermuda, and keep that up each planting season, it will eventually be the dominant grass.

If you really want the fesuce all gone you may have to kill it all and start over next season. They are some weed and feed products that are safe on certain grass types and will kill others, but I think they are typically more helpful with Bermuda v St.Augustine. My next door neighbor did this when switching from St. Augustine to Bermuda, and it worked pretty well killing one while feeding the other. The St. Augustine typically overuns everything.


Doing things almost the right way...
