Guide to Kentucky Bluegrass
Kentucky Bluegrass is a cool season, moderate to fine textured grass. It has a high cold tolerance, so it’s a good choice for northern parts of the United States. It is probably called “bluegrass” because it has a blue-green type of color. Kentucky Bluegrass has a low drought tolerance and needs quite a bit of watering, and it does not tolerate shade. You can plant Kentucky Bluegrass as sod, or by seeding.
Mow Kentucky Bluegrass between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches.
