I know my lawn is tall fescue grass, but there are also so many types of Fescue Grass Seeds. I don't know which type of Fescue Grass is on existing lawn when I bought the house.

If I want to repair a little dead spots and repair the thin lawn. Is it okay to randomly choose Fescue Grass Seed for over seeding? Just choose one I prefer?

Thanks.

Are you overseeding the whole lawn or just patching spots?


For spots I think you would be fine, as long as you stay with a variety of tall fescue so that the spots blend in. If you are over seeding the whole lawn, I'd go with the grass type/variety you prefer. It will blend in naturally.

Whole lawn, focusing on patching spots.

I'd try to get some seed that looks like what you already have. Do a test in a small area first to see what it looks like.

We just seeded a tall fescue lawn in the Phoenix area, and will be doing some fill in work, but we know the exact seed to buy.

I feel your dilemma, man. There are so many varieties. But, the tall fescue seed sold in bags in places like Home Depot almost always have several varieties included. This fact will help your new grass blend in better.
