    This winter the city did some underground work in my yard. They dug up then reseeded a section of my lawn. The grass that came up is gorgeous, durable and I'd like to replicate over the rest of my lawn. I asked a worker the other day what they'd used and he said "commercial mix." Any suggestions on where to find a similar mix in my area (Virginia Beach, VA)? Should I ask the guy again or maybe contact the company who was contracted to do the work? Also is it too late in the season to try and seed? I can post pictures if that would help. Thanks for any advice.

    I am not sure but he could mean contractors mix. I know Home Depot and Lowes carry Scott's and Pennington seed that says,"contractors mix". It contains rye, bluegrass and fescues for fast germination. This could be what he meant..
