grass seed question

Asked March 25, 2019, 3:12 PM EDT

Need to over-seed my lawn. Have lots of dead spots now where crabgrass grows and I would love to get rid of the crab grass. Have tried pre-emergents and still had the crabgrass. Thought this year i would try seeding again. For a long time, have had interest in buffalo grass. Like the idea of slow growth and drought resistance. Would like to know if buffalo grass is a good idea or if there is other grass i should try to crowd out crabgrass and have slow growth and need little water? I saw a Pennington grass mix, like Smart Fescue, that might be a choice. And can I get away with broadcasting the seed or do I need a power seeder or that sort of machine to do it? Thanks
