Grass problem

Hello I live in New York City and my house located at the corner of street and an avenue that can get very busy in summer. What kind of grass do you recommend that will be green and healthy and my budget as a graduate student? Katia, Brooklyn, NY

Tall fescue and kentucky bluegrass will work well in your location. Use fesuce if the site gets more than a half day of shade; bluegrass if it's more of a full sun location. These can both be started from seed, so you should be able to establish a lawn for a minimal cost.
