  1. Hi Kim.. well based upon what I know about your parks they are predominately bluegrass. The answer is a simple one.. our Everest 3000 per rye blend. Do you have salt issues/concerns? If so I would move you into our 3000 SLT. That is a great way to go if you are concerned or have salt issues. The 3000 goes for 1.05/lb and the the slt goes for 1.15/lb. I would recommend a miin of 10#/1000 sq ft. Research shows though that 20# is much better. What you need to do is build up a seed bank/reserve in the soil so that seed is popping all the time and thus filling in the damage. You can read about this product on the agronotec.com website. My second choice would be our Rejuvenate product which has 15% kbg mixed with the per rye. That product goes for 1.65/lb and I recommend a miin of 8#/1000 sq ft. So, if you would like to discuss those two products give me a call.. 801 876 3690.. Doug
