Question: 383-3410
We purchased a home last fall. The lawn has a concave ridge along the walk and front curb that collects water . It appears to be too wet. The contractor used fescue grass seed. Any suggestions? Tom, Evansville, IN

Mort's Answer:
That it the prescribed pattern used in the Xeriscape principles for water conservation. I would wait a year to see, if it works. Fescue is a tough grass. If the grass will not grow properly, you can dig a trench that is 18 inches deep and place patio block tiles or brick at the bottom. This will draw the water away from the young roots and prevent rotting. This will take care of the root of your problem.
