Nearly dead or Dormant?
Fescue lawns did the best up here this year with our drought. They stayed greener longer and recovered faster than any other variety.
Not saying that they are suitable for the south, but Fescue seem to be the new rage up north. I'm done with Blue-Grass and Rye. Fescue, especially the new cultivars are holding up extremely well in extreme conditions.
