well it finally came in and came in "good", but now all my work seems wasted as the watergrass has invaded and taken over..

I I am thinking of doing a burndown with Roundup on my whole yard and starting over....
My existing "grass" looks awesome until about mid July sometimes beginning of August. then the watergrass takes over and looks horrible. Somehow real grass comes back to life in spring for about 1/2 a season.  What can I spray on it to "just" kill the watergrass and extend the "life" of the "real" lawn grass?  I am so tired of this, with all the rain we had early this year itr seems worse than it has ever been, I have been in this house since 1998.

Up here in the Northeast we call that grass Crabgrass.  It happens every August.  I have learned to live with it.  You can't fight Mother Nature besides in a few weeks the lawn will be covered with leaves and lots of them.  I just love this time of year. LOL

We asked for "boulevard mixture..no clover" at the feed store. The green would grow anywhere and was very durable which was what we were after as we had two sighthounds tearing around the yard at warp speed.

Which feedstore?
