Fifty Shades of ....Green
I killed off large areas of bentgrass primarily because they looked like islands of light green in my lawn. After a very challenging spring re-seed with PR/KBG mix, my patches are finally getting established- not great, but more grass than dirt, but the better quality seed I used has now created darker green islands even though I used the new mix to seed both the patches and the entire lawn. The KBG is "Midnight" and the PR is a blend of PR grasses. I have more of the new seed and am planning to overseed the whole thing again in the fall. The original good areas of the lawn are lush and dense but since they're such a "mixed bag" of sunny mixtures I've overseeded with over the past decade, is there a remote possibility that the new seed mix will be aggressive enough to eliminate the patchwork quilt look I've got now? If I told my partner I was going to kill the good stuff so the greens match, I'd be writing my own obituary soon after, so that's not an option. I could introduce the old sunny mix to the new patches, but that would defeat the purpose of this new seed mix which is really pretty. Is midnight KBG capable of taking over the established lawn the way that ugly bentgrass did? Thanks!
