The grass seed that is recommended for lawns with moderate to full sun in Sussex County is tall fescue. This link has more information http://extension.udel.edu/factsheets/turfgrass-selections-for-delaware/ .

It is recommended that you have a soil test done to determine what additives your lawn may need in order to have successful, healthy lawn. The kits can be obtained at the Sussex County Cooperative Extension Office at 16483 County Seat Highway (Route 9) Georgetown, DE.

Good luck with the lawn.
