SODCO's Kentucky bluegrass is the original New England grass. It's mainly grown for sports fields and golf courses. A great choice for high traffic areas, with a soft texture and fast recovery!

Advantages of Kentucky Bluegrass include:

  • Good colour and density
  • Flourishes in full sun areas
  • Great ability to spread
  • Recovers from damage rapidly
  • Good cold tolerance and Winter survival
  • Very disease resistant and tolerant to wear and tear
  • Plant Characteristics: Kentucky bluegrass is a long-lived sod-forming perennial grass. Stems grow 1 to 2 feet in height when allowed to grow uncut. Leaves are narrow and dark-green 2 to 7 inches in length. The inflorescence is a pyramid-shaped panicle about 2 to 8 inches long. Kentucky bluegrass reproduces by rhizomes as well as by seed. New tillers with their roots, grow from the nodes along the rhizomes, continually filling the spaces left by the death of the older tiller tufts. Each tiller tuft may only survive for two years. Kentucky bluegrass is a palatable pasture plant making very early growth in the spring. It becomes the dominant grass species, in most of the older pastures. It withstands close and continuous grazing but becomes nearly dormant in midsummer when daily maximum temperatures approach 90 F. Growth resumes with the return of cool weather in the fall. Kentucky bluegrass is not a good hay crop.

    Kentucky bluegrass is adapted to the humid and subhumid sections of the northern half of the United States. It does best under cool, humid conditions on highly fertile soils not prone to drought. Kentucky Bluegrass grows best on heavier soils with a pH above 6. In pasture mixtures, bluegrass is generally seeded with other grasses, and clovers. Usually, two to three years are required to produce a good sod from seeding. Because of its dense turf, bluegrass is also the most popular lawn grass in America.
