Grass type recommendation for Portland area?

Asked September 7, 2018, 3:29 PM EDT

We're looking to reseed this fall in our first house and I was wondering what type of grass seed would be best. We're looking for something that doesn't need crazy watering in the summer while still being lush enough to play in and enjoy. Also, something that we can plant early October. Thanks in advance for any recommendations!

Grass seed recommendations vary with your conditions. This article includes answers, and links to other OSU Extension publications with details about how to care for lawn in our area. "What's the best grass mixture for a western Oregon lawn?" https://extension.oregonstate.edu/node/82276
Mid-August to mid-September is best for planting lawn seed. See why on the first page of the excellent publication, "Practical Lawn Establishment and Renovation" https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/ec1550.pdf
