Will Home Depot carry tall fescue seeds this September. I live in North Georgia and want a shade tolerant grass.
What type of tall fescue seeds/varieties will be in the mix?

Fescue is sometimes sold combined with creeping red fescue or bluegrass. While the other grasses are very shade tolerant, they find difficulty surviving hot summers or foot traffic. Any of the turf-type fescues are good to use in shady zones so look for a package marked shade and choose the one with the highest percentage of fescue grasses.
