Kentucky bluegrass, fescues and ryegrasses are all suitable for growing in your region. You'll want to amend the soil with compost prior to planting. Digging or rototilling the compost into the top 6 inches of soil, then leveling it and broadcasting your grass seeds. The compost will loosen your clay soil and make a good base for the lawn.
