Best Lawn Grass for Bethesda MD
We are about to overseed and to seed some bare ground in our lawn. Currently, the lawn is mostly tall fescue, but we're willing to move in a different direction if it will improve the health of the lawn. Would we do best to stay with a fescue mix or should we introduce perennial rye grass.
Tall fescue is definitely superior to perennial rye for Maryland due to disease susceptibility. You could introduce a percentage of fine fescue if you have a lot of shade. https://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG102%20Lawn%20Esta...
