    I'm overseeding a driving range's Tee-Box & can't decide which winter rye to use. This is my first request in years so I'm long time out of the loop.

    Prennial Rye (more Expensive) is the better choice because of the thinner blade and Greener Color. But don't overseed too heavy. You can stunt Spring Green up of the main turf by chocking it out.

    My odds for Perennial may go up with JDL/LESCO rather than HD or Lowes I suppose. Thanks!

    Perennial rye is far easier to maintain, grows half as fast and darker green...annual seems to hold more water....its tough to cut if it goes a week in between mowing s

    Use perrinal eagle overseeding rye from lesco/John Deere. It is a blend of 3 different types of rye. I know the John Deere Landscapes in Ocala off hwy 200 had some last Monday.
