    That's how I feel. I don't see the sense in killing the only thing that manages to grow and stay green in drought/heat wave conditions and replacing it with shit you need to babysit like a three-year-old and devote endless time and money taking care of.
    It's like keeping the runt of the litter and drowning the rest.

    I’m sorry you mean -what kind of soil is this?

    The kind that needs -aeration over seeding and fertilizing.

    But wait until the fall to start this.

    What you can do now is to contact your local County Extension Agent to see if they do soil tests. If yes, then get their sample bag and submit it for test results. With this, along with a pic of your yard, they can give you guidance on what is best to do, and when to do it.

    Looks like a good dethatching as well.

    Tall Fescue. Some times called Ryegrass. Lots of it in my lawn.

    Sometimes that seed is on sale because it's old. There are dates on the label that tell when it was harvested and the older it gets the lower the germination rate.
    If the label is missing its almost always out of date

    That is Japanese stilt grass; NOT poa annua. It got here by it’s use as a packing material inside imported packages. That shit is highly invasive. I’ve used glyphosate to kill it off. Do not mow it, bag it, or disturb it, because you’ll be dislodging the seeds. Once it’s dried out, you’ll need to carefully pull it from the ground and shop-vac that area to get the seeds up. If you just keep mowing it, your whole yard will become it.

    Yeah, it’s a crabgrass-variant. Not sure of its exact species. I just spot-spray with glyphosate, pull it when it’s dried out, then, throw down some tall fescue seed. Very common.
