    Bluegrass is by far the best! Ryegrass sucks: 2 reasons....most ryegrass plants cultivars grow in clumps and do not spread (like Kentucky bluegrass does). Also: most ryegrasses develope "rust" by late summer -- orange powder on your shoes, pets, carpet.

    Ryegrasses germinate easilly & quickly, and they're cheap. Conversely, Kentucky bluegrass (more expensive) takes 3 weeks to germinate, and fall is the only time you have a good chance of it germinating - especially in poor soils.
