grass for lawn that is soft underfoot
I seem to have a lot of grass with a very hard base -- it feels like a little stick underfoot. I've uploaded a couple of photos of what I'm talking about. Is there any type of grass that I can grow in my small sunny New England backyard that will be soft underfoot? Thanks

Soft grasses are classified as fine textured grasses and have long, slender narrow leaves.
Soft grasses do not wear as well as medium or coarse grasses.
Look for these grasses for a soft turf.
