TTTF works great for cool season turf. Make sure it is endophytic
Endophyte-infected grasses show excellent resistance to damage from insects such as sod webworms, chinch bugs and armyworms. Endophyte-infected grasses also improve drought and heat tolerance, In a few studies at Rutgers University, plots containing endophyte-infected Chewings, strong creeping and hard fescues showed greater resistance to dollar spot

since we're talking about seed...

I tried out a bag of Lesco's brand new Durable Tall Fescue blend (spreading fescues) on my own yard last fall, and it came in super thick. I'd like to see how well it does this summer. One of the varieties 'Catelyst' tested very high on the NTEPs. This might be my new seed blend.
