Is this KBG?

GRSpartyMay 27, 2012

I bought my first house last fall and have been learning how to take care of my yard. I have a ton of weeds that I am trying to fight right now with Weed B Gone and I will be overseeding this fall to help reestablish by grass as it has been taken over by weeds. I've been reading on here that I should probably buy a mix of KBG/perennial Rye/fine Fescue.

I've attached a pic of my grass, can someone please let me know if this is indeed KBG and would that be a good mix to seed this fall? I'm in west Michigan

From that picture the only thing that is certain is you have clover, but I would say no, that's not KBG from that picture. Some closeups of individual blades would sure help.

Looks like fine fescue to my eyes.

I've been reading here for 10 years and can't remember anyone recommending a mix that included rye. If you lived in the Pacific Northwest, then maybe rye alone, but for the most part, rye raises issues in a mix that can be avoided by not including it.
