Best suitable grass seeds to match current lawn for reseeding


I want to reseed my lawn. Need to match current grass . Don't want to have different grass structures in lawn.

I asked couple of homedepots pros at different stores and they suggested different products . That made me confused.
Can some please help me find exact product which suits current grass (images attached). Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Products suggested by homedepot pros are

Well you do want to talk to a pro and specifically one from your region and climate, but IMO you don't look for them at the box stores.

Do you have a major college or university near you? If so they may have an agriculture department. If not check you state agency.

don't use any seed that has BERMUDA grass in it.
Bermuda grass is a sprawling and aggressive species.
it will take over an area and choke out other grass that you want to keep.
sure, it is a nice lawn if you can maintain it and keep it under control.

I normally grab a couple hand fulls and go to the Southern States store.

Never had a problem.

Here's a good read.

I can't tell what type of grass you have. But my experience is:


1) Don't buy a seed "mix". It probably contains ugly garbage grasses that you don't want, but they germinate very quickly and it allows them to slap a note on the bag that says their seed starts germinating quicker than the other guy's seed.


2) Go to a real nursery/landscape store. Take better focused photos and maybe sample, and they will identify what you have. Likely 95% of the homes in your area all have the same type of grass. Myself, I don't believe a Scott's Kentucky bluegrass seed (for example) is any different than the Kentucky bluegrass seed you buy in bulk, out of the bin.

Where's your lawn located? State and city are fine.

That's vitally important, because that will guide the selection of grasses. Looks like you have Kentucky bluegrass, which is a nice lawn in a climate suited to it. If you're in Southern California, I'd replace with something else.

Let us know!
