Answer: I'm going to recommend you contact Master Gardeners through University of Massachusetts Cooperative Extension. The University has a turf research program, and the Master Gardeners should have access to their latest information on what performs best in regional conditions. I'm sorry I couldn't be more specific, but found very little detail on your specific situation. This is the only MG link I found online, but if it doesn't apply to your county, they should be able to direct you. Good luck!
