Answer: A thick and healthy stand of Kentucky Bluegrass makes a great play field and looks attractive nearly all year around in your gardening region. Alternatives include perennial ryegrass or a bluegrass/ryegrass mixture.
The secret to a great lawn is to start with good soil preparation prior to planting, water deeply, and feed in April, June, September and November with a 3-1-2 ratio of fertilizer. Regular mowing (removing no more than 1/3 of the grass blades) will also help your lawn become thick and healthy enough to withstand foot traffic (and games of fetch).
