Grass seed: Ryegrass or no ryegrass...

...that is the question!

I need to re-seed a patch on my lawn and I don't know whether I should use a mix with or without ryegrass.

If I buy 'without ryegrass' and use it on a lawn 'with ryegrass' will it look awful? And vice-versa?

Last year I re-seeded a patch and some awful tall weed grasses came up (very noticable as the lawn was not mowed whilst I was away). So I would also like to know a reliable brand if anyone has recommendations. Thanks!



i would seed what you already have and keep it mowed down though the forst time you cut the reseaded parts its worth doing with scissers

I'd recommend you choose one with ryegrass in it, but check the box - it should tell you what mix of seeds is present, and you want one with short leaved rye grass, not just rye grass.
