    i live in an area dominated by kentucky bluegrass. i have heard that overseeding with turf type tall fescue or perennial ryegrass doesn't look good. how can i transition these yards to a more resistant grass type?

    if i have to start over completely what are some quality turf type tall fescue or perennial rye seeds? which type of resistant grass is better do you think?

    is there any new kentucky bluegrass breeds out there that have endophytes or are more resistant for an all organic program?

    I Have Blended Fescue Into Bluegrass An It Does Work Well If You Do It A Few Seasons Consistently. I Would Reccomend That You Kill Off Then Powerseed Into Exsisting Lawn. I Would Use A Triple Crown Elite,consisting Of 3 Premium Fescues. It Works Well, Hope This Helps Thanks
