Grass seed

Asked March 31, 2017, 8:19 AM EDT

We are new to the area, live on Doe Valley Lake, and want to spread grass seed. The lot is mostly in full sun, rocky soil, moderate slope downward to the south. Would you recommend a particular variety? We hope to find large bags for low cost per pound, but don't want to buy something wrong only to save money for bulk. Any advice on what to use/not use?

Ideally, one of the improved varieties of tall fescue would be best. Falcon 4 is easy to purchase around our area. The best time to sew coolseason grass like tall fescue would be in late summer or early fall. If you can irrigate throughout the summer now through the end of April will be okay.
