Hello and thanks for using the Ask an Expert System.

This is a good time to renovate an old lawn or establish a new lawn. There is no one recommended grass seed type for Pennsylvania. A lot depends on your particular environment, and what kind of lawn you prefer.

Before beginning a new lawn, I suggest that you check out a thorough and detailed source of information on all aspects of lawn care in Pennsylvania. Penn State Extension’s online web site on home lawns is such a source. You can see this site at
