Cool Season Lawn Grasses

The turfgrass industry has been developing genetically superior varieties of cool-season lawn grasses for many years, and the advances in grass genetics are creating stronger plants that will better tolerate wear and environmental stresses.  The top three types of cool-season grasses are tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, and perennial ryegrass.

Tall Fescue

Tall fescue is a cool-season grass that has been the preferred grass seed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states for nearly 30 years and more recently in the Midwest and far-western states like California. It is adaptable to a wide range of climates, is disease resistant. and tolerates cold, heat, drought, and shade very well thanks to its deep root system.
