The Q&A Archives: Best Type of Grass Seed

Question: What is the best type of grass seed can I use on a yard that holds a significant amount of water.

Answer: In most areas of Massachusetts, tall fescue is the most suitable grass. It is drought tolerant, resistant to disease and pests, and can often survive New England winters. For shady and less fertile areas, fine fescues such as red fescue are a good choice. You can use a grass seed mixture for the best coverage, pest and disease resistance.
