Our Popular Seed Mixtures

Growing a lush, verdant lawn here requires an understanding of the different types of grass that can thrive in the western half of the Keystone State. Jonathan Green offers several premium-quality products.

Black Beauty® Keystone

The premium Black Beauty® Keystone Pennsylvania Grass Seed is specially formulated for the climates of Pennsylvania. It thrives in full sun to medium-shaded lawn areas and is naturally insect and disease-resistant. You can expect this seed to germinate in 10 to 14 days.

Kentucky Bluegrass

As a cool-season grass, Blue Panther® Kentucky Bluegrass Grass Seed does well in areas with plenty of sunlight. The grass has a moderate drought and foot traffic tolerance while requiring a focus on maintaining the correct mowing height between 2.0 and 2.5 inches. Kentucky Bluegrass represents a popular grass seed choice for commercial and residential property owners. Dense, dark green blades create an inviting appearance that exudes charm.

Perennial Ryegrass

Consider Touch-Up™ TRI-RYE Perennial Ryegrass as a complementary type of grass for lawns that receive a considerable amount of sunlight. This cool-season grass thrives on lawns with a lot of foot traffic. It spreads in bunches, which means you have to be careful not to plant more seeds than necessary. The grass works well for overseeding in spring and fall.

Black Beauty® Ultra

Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed is another excellent option. It contains a combination of Tall Fescue, Perennial Ryegrass, and Kentucky Bluegrass. The blend of all three cool-season types of grass creates a thick, dark green lawn that does a great job of resisting heat and prolonged droughts. Black Beauty® seeds germinate between 10 and 14 days.

Quality Matters

You can provide growth support for Black Beauty® grass seeds by ensuring the soil has a pH that always remains within the 6.2 to 7.0 range. You can lower your soil pH by using Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Alkaline & Hard Soil or raise the pH by using Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Lawns in Acidic & Hard Soil.
