I'm getting ready to plant grass in my back yard either this fall or in the spring. I'm wondering if dwarf fescue will grow well here in Springville, or if I would be better off planting bluegrass? I had dewarf fescue in Southern California and really liked it.

I like Kentucky Blue Grass. KBG is drought tolerant and very durable. If you have children or grandchildren playing on your turf, KBG will recover faster.
You could call Granite Seed and see if they have any drawf fescues that they recommend.
I hope this is of help to you.
