Kentucky Bluegrass Seed

 

Kentucky bluegrass is the most commonly used cool-season grass. Most often, it can be found providing the landscape for golf courses, athletic fields, home lawns and parks throughout the United States. The popularity of Kentucky bluegrass is due to its ability to thrive in hot and cool temperatures, tolerance to a variety of mowing heights and need for only moderate fertilization and watering.

 

Kentucky bluegrass spreads through underground runners known as rhizomes. Its root system may grow to depths of up to one and a half feet, providing dense, lush turf characterized by high resistance to weeds.
