    I plan on aerating and overseeding the first week of Sept. I don't care for the mix I've been using(Charismatic Perennial Ryegrass, Champagne Kentucky Bluegrass, Pathfinder Red Fescue, Exacta Perennial Ryegrass, and Oxford Fine Fescue). I was thinking about going with a kentucy blue mix like 3-D from Summit becuase of it's strong characteristics (dark, dense, lower cutting, drought and disease resistance, and less mowing)

    Darker, Denser, Dwarfer,100% Super Elite Kentucky Bluegrass.
    40% MIDNIGHT STAR Kentucky Bluegrass
    30% BEDAZZLED Kentucky Bluegrass
    30% BOUTIQUE Kentucky Bluegrass

    Any thoughts and what do you plan on using?

    I usually use Pennington Tall Fescue or Lesco Transition Blend. Also have used Pennington K31 for overseeding.

    Anyone have problems w/ weeds in that Transition Blend? It seems like I have a lot of weeds every time I use it. I never have any when I use Overtime.
