    I live in North Dakota zone 4. I will be moving to a new home at the end of July. I will need to install black dirt,sprinkler system and grass seed. I will be using a mulch mower and using organic lawn care. I had planned on using Kentucky Blue Grass but now after reading posts here I was wondering if there was a better grass to plant?

    Try the above link to help answer any region specific questions.

    I would go with KY Blue and if you had a lot of shady areas mix in some creeping red fescue. Something like a 75/25 mix.

    Thanks blaze347 for the link, it's very helpful and informative. The site also has info on trees, shrubs etc. plantings to use in my zone.
