    Default What kind of grass to plant in PA?

    We planted a grass last year (I wish I could remember what kind - will find out from hubby) and it has become over come with clover grass. I wouldn't really mind but it makes it really slippery and my husband doesn't like it.

    Hubby did some research and learned that you could put lime down and it would help the grass take over.

    Hubby wants to plant new grass this year and asked me to see if anyone could recommend something for the pastures.

    Are you talking about the lawn or the pastures?

    Either way, contact your county Cooperative Extension Agent. They're paid by the government to help you.

    Yes talk to your extentsion agent. Soil testing the pasture will let you know what it needs as far as lime and fertilizer. There is a pasture mix seed which contains clover and alfalfa and other grasses that does well in PA.
