More parades, more rain......
I'm seeing the annual onslaught of ads for miracle lawn grass seeds that promise to withstand heavy traffic, resist insects and disease, tolerate shady spots and be green four seasons of the year. The seed mix typically contains annual ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass and maybe some fine fescue.
In my part of the world there is no way these grasses could survive one summer. I doubt they could meet their claims in any part of the country.
If you want a grass that grows well in your area, contact your local University Extension office and ask their advice.
Their knowledge is far more valuable than a TV or magazine ad.
