Kentucky Bluegrass Sod
Kentucky Bluegrass’ medium-fine texture, high density, and dark green-to-blue color make it the most popular cool season turf around. While it requires more care than Tall Fescue, it is easy to maintain with proper watering.
Because Kentucky Bluegrass has a relatively shallow root system (as compared with the very drought-resistant Tall Fescue), it is moderately drought-resistant. In times of high heat and little water, Kentucky Bluegrass will go dormant. If watered intermittently through the drought, it can green up later when the extreme conditions abate.
These shallower roots come with one major benefit. Kentucky Bluegrass roots feature rhizomes, underground side-shoots that allow the grass to spread. Though this grass holds up very well to foot traffic and pets, if the dog or a team’s-worth of football cleats causes some bare patches, this grass will simply spread to fill these in. It is this “self-repairing” quality that also makes a Kentucky Bluegrass lawn so dense.
Kentucky Bluegrass can tolerate light shade, but prefers full sun to really thrive. It can tolerate close mowing too – some varieties can be cut to less than 2” high.
Our Kentucky Bluegrass sod is ideal for use in sunny locations where it will be irrigated during the growing season. It is the top choice for homes, businesses, and athletic fields when appearance is a priority. Contact us here to request a quote or ask questions about Shan-Gri-La’s Kentucky Bluegrass sod.
