Anybody ever dealt with this. From the research I have done. It appears to be a little tricky to do it right.

It can be. You have to make sure you have all the fescue out, and control the weeds without killing the species you want. Fire can be your friend!

I just sprayed the fescue with 64oz of round-up per acre today. That should put a hurt on it.

I have a client that has become a master of planting stands of NWSG. I'll ask him about his current planting routine. But he sure had to learn everything the hard way. Successfully establishing NWSG is a real learned art.

It just makes sense. That is what's suppose to be here before modern man got here and screwed it all up.

I agree. About all the grass I see is bermuda, fescue, and crab. I probably don't even know what a real native grass is since this is all I see.

SEC, what county are you in? TWRA has 4 biologists whose primary responsibility is to help landowners with habitat projects on private land.

I got some state help with it and have been very pleased. 6 years in and have good stands. Quail, deer, bobcats galore. Ive only burned once and not likely to ever do that again. When you light that stuff it GOES. No issues, but please be very prepared.
