In Minnesota, Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue and perennial ryegrass seed mixtures are recommended for home lawns. Dandelions and other broadleaf weeds are easily controlled with products containing 2,4-D. You'll find lots of brands available, just look for the chemical 2,4-D or purchase one that's designed to kill dandelions. Spot treating may be an option, depending upon the population of weeds in your lawn.
