Kentucky Blue Grass
Kentucky Bluegrass (KBG) is the most widely used cool season grass in the continental United States. For many homeowners, well taken care of KBG creates a lawn that stands out and is beautiful to look at. Its dark green leaves (almost blue in color) are soft to the touch and grows in a dense pattern.
It has fair warm temperature tolerance and good to excellent cold temperature tolerance. However, a word of caution KBG will struggle in drought conditions and does not grow well in deep shade. When using this blend for your Green Space we strongly suggest a well regimented watering schedule. A solid maintenance program of water, fertilizer and care, are the keys to a long life and beautiful lawn for years to come.
This sod contains a mix of Kentucky Bluegrass and Fine Fescue. It is ideal for sites where there is some shade (less than 5 hours of direct sunlight). The texture is different than that of 100% Kentucky Bluegrass because of the narrow Fine Fescue grass blade. Generally, it is a lighter green color than straight bluegrass. Can be maintained or allowed to grow up to a rough height.
This sod contains a blend of the wider leaf blade of the Tall Fescue with the finer leaf blade of Kentucky Bluegrass.
Tall fescue is valued for its adaptability to a wide range of climates and its tolerances for cold, heat, drought and shade. In its preferred growing zones, tall fescue provides lawn owners with outstanding options for improving lawn resilience and durability.
