If you are a property owner in Allentown, Bethlehem, Emmaus, Pennsylvania or a surrounding area and you are wondering what type of grass to seed your lawn with, look no further. Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue are perfect and will surely fill your lawn with strong, lush grass.
Both types of grass will not only look beautiful but are able to withstand the cold weather that we have here in Pennsylvania. At Green Turf Care, we have a hybrid seed mixture that uses 90% tall fescue and 10%% Kentucky bluegrass for residential and commercial properties. Find out what makes these two grass types perfect for your lawn.
Tall fescue is low maintenance, cool-season grass.
It was in the 1800s when the tall fescue made its way from Europe to the United States. The leaves of the tall fescue have a coarse texture and the colors range from medium to dark green. It was not a popular choice back then as a turfgrass due to its texture. But when its drought and heat tolerance properties were discovered, it soon became a popular choice for both commercial and residential properties.
Because tall fescue is a cool-season grass, the peak growth time is during the fall and spring. These cooler seasons are the best time to plant the seeds. Tall fescue grows quite rapidly, so it will require regular mowing but, other than that, it is actually quite low maintenance. In fact, it is naturally disease and pest-resistant.
Due to its deep root system, tall fescue easily adapts to different climates, including drought and heat.
Get a Lush, Emerald Green Lawn with Kentucky Bluegrass
Kentucky bluegrass is another type of cool-season grass that does most of its growth in the spring and the fall. While it still grows in the summer, it is not as rapid as in the colder months.
The leaves of Kentucky bluegrass are deep emerald in color and have a fine texture. Its appearance is one of the reasons why it's a very popular choice for many landscapes.
Because of its shallow root system, Kentucky bluegrass is not as heat or drought-tolerant as tall fescue is. However, you won't have to mow your Kentucky bluegrass as often due to its slower-growing leaves.
Use a hybrid seed mixture of tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass for your lawn in Pennsylvania.
While there are many grass types that will do well in Pennsylvania, Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue top the list. Both types are cool-season grasses, meaning they thrive in the colder seasons. These grass types are better equipped to handle the harsh winters of Pennsylvania than a warm-season grass would be.
