Go to the local ag extension and ask around.
Then go to the premier garden stores around town and ask.
Some grasses are made for the local area and some are made for the general zone you live in.
Here the general zone grasses go for 15$ a bag while the specific grasses go for $25.
The specific grasses do much much better than the general ones.
Now there are two types of grasses
Warm weather - they turn brown at first frost - they creep - make a thick mat - zoysia bermuda are two of them - generally grow from plugs
Cool weather - fescue bluegrass - only grow where you plant them - turn brown in dead of summer - need more water - not very tough
