Kentucky Blue Grass Lawn
Kentucky Bluegrass (shown above) is the most famous and popular of the Bluegrass species. --- There are many improved varieties of KBG available on the market today.

Bluegrass remains the same in popularity much as it was when first introduced to North American by early Europeans and their animals. Beautiful, lush and finely textured, this is the real lawn grass most people strive for. Truly a "bare foot" grass at it's finest. Not too aggressive nor too retiring this species mixes well with companion cool season grasses for greater diversity and longevity. As most tender bladed grasses go; higher rates of fertilizer and water are needed. It's fast growing characteristic has the ability develop a good root system against drought. Bluegrass has good "lawn mending" capabilities.

Bluegrass has a later green-up period and is often seeded specifically with ryegrasses for this reason. Bluegrass is one of the longest living perennials grasses grown. Although a reseeding grass; many factors over a period of time may thin or kill sections of these lawns and reseeding or patch seeding may be required. The reasons for this can be due to disease, insect damage, wear, climate swings, water deficiency, or other environmental factors. Reseeding affords the homeowner a chance to upgrade the present lawn with improved qualities.

Establishment Of Kentucky Bluegrass Lawns

Bluegrass can be fairly easy established from seed or sod. Seeded lawns establishment depends upon a well prepared seedbed, application of a starter fertilizer, following seeding guidelines with consistent watering schedules while the seedlings develop and thereafter as needed. Due to the slower growth of Bluegrass, full establishment takes time (1-2 months is not unusual). This is one of the primary reasons to include Perennial Ryegrass in a Bluegrass lawn.

Blue Grass Seed Used In Seed Blends/Mixtures

Additions of creeping red fescue, perennial rye grass or annual rye grass seeds are included in bluegrass for several reasons. Red Fescue tolerates shadier areas where bluegrass may not get enough sunshine. Annual rye grass is often seeded with the bluegrass to achieve green-up earlier and dies off when warmer weather sets in.

The addition of perennial ryegrass to bluegrass seed helps to develop a tougher sod that stands up to tougher wear and the rye will fill in while the KBG germinates (4-8 weeks). Bluegrass and perennial rye are good companion grasses for athletic fields and playgrounds. These different combinations of grass seeds works exceedingly well for newly planted seedbeds and overseeding existing stands of bluegrass lawns. The balanced mix is chosen to utilize the specialties derived per each kind; blending traits to produce the best composite coverage possible. Including the faster growing Ryegrass also produces a lawn cover while the Bluegrass grows in.

Bluegrass grows by roots from single plants and at the same time sends out stems to form their own roots. This interweaves and supports the base making it denser as it grows. Less moisture can be lost this way to evaporation than with the more "open" growing plants with ground and air space between the plants themselves. This is why this grass falls into the creeping grass category.

Bluegrass In Pasture

Pasturage Bluegrass is a long-living perennial grass which originated from Europe and Asia. In Europe bluegrass is called smooth meadow grass. This grass has successfully spread across half of the United States and into Canada and is well known as a pasture grass for horses, cattle, and sheep throughout the areas of adaptation. Millions of acres are now occupied whether by purpose or by nature's own seeding and are still being planted today. Bluegrass seeds are easy to harvest and has developed into one of the species with the largest number of varieties of any grass seed. --- Read more on Bluegrass pastures.
