    What kind are largely available at the stores, it is likely the most common type sold also happens to fit the answer to your question.

    You really want to stick with fescues although it's getting really late. It would normally be way too late but with the warm temps. we've been having, it's not quite as bad.

    If you're looking for a quick ground cover, annual ryegrass will be your quickest germination by far but it will die mid to late spring. Then you can seed a warm-season turf such as bermudagrass.

    Either way, if you do seed now, get the water on it as often as possible before it does get way too cold.

    being that greensboro can't water at the moment I'd just throw out some rye to hold things down if you're worried about erosion.
