    This is my own yard, I cut is MUCH shorter than the customers lawn so it doesn't get as much "full green" as theirs due to the cutting height. But for a reel mowed lawn it is pretty good and I think the best looking lawn in the neighborhood. Sorry about the first pic, the sun was still on the low side... the second pic you can kind of tell the difference in cutting height between me and my neighbor, the front sidewalk strip is cut by me... just for uniformity.

    Ryegrass -- Apple GL, Homerun, Fiesta 4, Amazing GS, Protege GLR

    (The "G" designations are for Grey Leaf Spot resistant)

    Bluegrass -- Award, Midnight, NuDestiny, NuGlade, Bedazzled

    I'm not salesman for them but these blends are available from Oliger Seed,
    Akron, OH

    I suspect these varieties would do equally well in Central NY. The only trouble I would point out is that you can't do spot work with them. Too dark!
    So overseeding is fine or total seeding.

    I've seen Florida sand that is pretty inpressive. Looks like it came from a swamp.
