KBG Overseeding - which brand would you recommend?
Hi, I have a small lawn (700 sqft) in my backyard. Last year I planted Kentucky Bluegrass using Scott's blend and I am okay with the results. The lawn is fairly established so far with manageable weeds. However Scott's grass blend is very susceptible to rust disease and at one point the lawn was almost killed off this late spring. Other than that I think the grass is doing fine despite the summer stress and drought. I plan to overseed the lawn this fall and I have purchased the following two commercial KBG blends:
Blend one: Jonathan Green - Sod Maker KBG
39.35% Madison KBG WA
29.50% Blackjack KBG WA
19.65% Wild Horse KBG WA
9.83% Corsair KBG WA
Blend two: Pennington - Smart Seed KBG
48.80% Ridgeline KBG WA/OR
24.30% Wild Horse KBG WA
14.50% Oasis KBG WA
9.60% Mallard KBG WA
I have done some researches on the grass species including reading NTEP test results. But I want some experts' opinions.
My backyard is made up of heavy clay. But after a year of thriving grass and soil amendments the soil structure has improved greatly. The grass are rooted to an average depth of 2 - 3 inches. The lawn area gets full sun during the warm seasons.
