However, when you reseed you are forced to use a percentage of perennial rye, as it has good seedling vigor. Kentucky bluegrass will seldom give a good "take" it just comes in too slow. In any event use top-quality seed.
If you want Kentucky bluegrass--use sod. Let the experts grow it for you.
Agreed... but it would be good to know whether the client is able to sustain such an expensive lawn... you showed pictures of a hydroseeded lawn that ended up producing a healthy crop of CG so unless the client has the resources to protect the sod from utter destruction, he might have to ,,, play it safe...
