    Hi all, I am trying to find out what others have had good results with for seed in the Northeast (CT to be exact). Thinking of something that has a KBG and Rye mix in it? Help!
    Thanks,,,,,,,, Lesco must have something?

    Consider the slope, sun, soil, etc then figure out which combo works best. I like 40% KBG, 30% CR fescue, and 20% Per. Rye, with 10% AR. for cover crop. This is on reasonably good soils with adequate sun, but not an all day baking type sun.

    lesco carries the 'athletic park and field mix' - this stuff has worked wonders with overseeding, patching and a complete new lawn that i installed for my father this spring..... if the conditions are right give it a try! bomb-proof stuff!
