    I’ve seen pretty heavy populations of Parsley-Piert in lawns this time of year. Sometimes it can be almost carpet like. Heat should burn it out soon. Treat in the fall for best results. This time of year any threeway type post emergent for southern lawns should take care of it. It would probably be a good idea to reduce your rates by one half on the fescue portion of the lawn.
