I like the turf-type fescues. These fescues are not red or chewning fescue but rather a variety of tall fescue. Do not use tall fescue but the turf-type fescue. You may have to check with a reputable commercial lawn company to locate some seed.

Turf type fescue have few pests and are tolerate dry weather better than most turf species.
