The Best Grass Seed Mixtures for Pennsylvania Lawns

Black Beauty® Keystone Pennsylvania Grass Seed is a premium, all-purpose grass seed mixture that has been formulated specifically for the climates of the state of Pennsylvania. It thrives in full sun to medium shaded lawn areas and provides an attractive, perennial, healthy, dark-green lawn. This grass seed germinates in 10 to 14 days.

Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed is favored by sod growers across the USA. It grows roots up to 4′ deep and produces a naturally darker-green turf with better disease resistance and drought tolerance thanks to a waxy leaf coating that helps preserve moisture and ward off stress from heat, cold, wind, and disease. It grows well in clay or sandy soils and full sun or partial shade.

Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed contains a mixture of exclusive, elite varieties of Tall Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass, and Perennial Ryegrass and is also grown on sod farms.  The cool-season grasses grow a naturally dark-green and beautiful lawn with excellent heat and drought tolerance. Black Beauty Ultra® grass seed germinates in 10-14 days and will improve any lawn it is seeded into.

Black Beauty® Sun & Shade Grass Seed is our most popular grass seed mixture. It contains exclusive varieties of Black Beauty Tall Fescues, Kentucky Bluegrass, fine fescues, and Perennial Ryegrass, is endophyte-enhanced for improved insect resistance, and will grow a thick, dark-green lawn in both sun and partial shade areas.

Growing grass in the shade can be challenging, but Black Beauty® Dense Shade Grass Seed grows in shady areas and dry soils where other seed mixtures have failed. It contains several grass types for species diversity, including Black Beauty Tall Fescues and naturally insect-resistant endophytic turfgrass varieties that help deter pests.  This mixture can thrive in both medium and densely shaded areas.

When to Plant

Cool season grass seeds, such as Jonathan Green Black Beauty®, fare best in the early fall in Pennsylvania, when the air is cooling down, but the soil is still warm. Weed growth tapers off in the fall, so your new grass won’t have to compete for sunshine, water and nutrients. It will also have the benefit of two cool growing cycles before the heat of summer sets in.
