Answer: Some of the best grasses for your gardening region are Kentucky bluegrass,
Chewings fescue, Creeping red fescue and Perennial ryegrass. Preparing the soil properly prior to planting will reward you for years to come. The first step is to remove all vegetation and fist-sized rocks. The rest will work their way down into the soil after your turfgrass is established and you start walking on it and watering regularly
I found a terrific website sponsored by Penn State that offers a dozen or so publications on turfgrass establishment and management. I think it's a site that will be helpful to you and you can download the publications and print them off for future reference. http://turfgrassmanagement.psu.edu/homelawns.cfm
Best wishes with your lawn!
