Fescue vs. Kentucky Bluegrass
I live in Lincoln, NE and this summer was a drought that also had water restrictions for our city, so my backyard and frontyard have turned to a brownish color rather than the normal, healthy green.
I am going to plant some seed this weekend, but had a few questions.
Should I do fescue or Kentucky bluegrass? I have no kids and 1 small dog.
Which grass is it that is the soft kind when you touch or lay on it?
I don't own a tiller or aerator. Can I still lay the seed?
Should I water the yard before I rake up the soil?
Do I need to buy top soil or what kind of soil do I need?
I have quite a large backyard. Would it be harmful to just plant all across the yard, even on some areas that don't need seeding? Should I apply more seed to bare spots and thin spots?
I really am not sure what type of grass I currently have. Will it hurt my grass if I plant 2 different types?
Does fescue give a nice look to it like KBG?
