The fescue (native) area between number six and 14 South is progressing well. The seed heads are starting to mature and in another month will turn brown. The blue color you see is from the sheep fescue, the greener grass is hard fescue.

The annual bluegrass (poa annua) is quite thick and will require an application of herbicide this fall. If we can get the annual bluegrass under control, it will make the stand much thinner and more playable.

Give this area three to five years to fully mature.

  1. Steve,

    What herbicide are you thinking of applying to control the Poa?
