Answer: You may find that part of the problem is that the soil was somewhat depleted by the trees and then is a bit dry due to the slope. Creeping fescue is often used as a cool season grass or in shaded areas, so it may not really be suited to the location now that the trees are gone. I would suggest you work with your local county extension to run some basic soil tests and then work out a fertilization program based on the test results. You may also need to adjust the pH based on the test results. And, they should be able to tell you which type of grass variety would grow best in that area. Good luck with your lawn!
