I agree Mr. Wilson,
Perennial rye is not really suited to hot weather climate. Brown patch, gray leaf spot, red thread, drought kill, and temps over 95 are problematic. Use a proper grass adapted to your climate. And if you use rye ,or rye mixtures, be prepared to apologize to your customers when the rye fades out ...again.

I agree, not much happens below 50 degrees, (or super slow at best).

Be sure you understand what happened--was it the fescue that died out in the heat--or--was it actually rye that someone had planted in a previous year? Learn to tell the difference.
