    We have a lawn that half the front is zoysia and the rest is blue/rye/fescue. They want us to overseed the lawn. I was wondering if I should go ahead and overseed our normal Lesco Blue/Rye mix? We will be aerating and overseeding with a broadcast method. The backyard is as small as the front (both about 2,000 square feet), but it is blue/rye/fescue with no zoysia.

    it's not going to do much good to over-seed the zoysia part of the lawn with B/R mix but the aeration would be great for it!

    OSU prefers Kentucky bluegrass for sunny areas. Many ryegrass cultivars don't spread & fill in, plus often get rust.

    See OSU regarding rust in turfgrass. Ryegrass is the most common turf that gets it.:usflag:
