Turf Types

We grow two types of turf at our farms, Kentucky Blue Grass and Turf Type Tall Fescue.  Here are some helpful tips to aid you in selecting what will work best for your site.

Kentucky Blue Grass


Kentucky Blue Grass

  • Forms a lush, dense, and durable lawn
  • Natural spreading habit that easily fills-in bare spots
  • Prefers full sun but will tolerate some light shade
  • Can go dormant and turn brown during hot and dry summer months
  • Requires more frequent watering, mowing, and fertilizing than Fescues
Tall Fescue Sod


Tall Type Fescue

  • Valued for its beauty and adaptability to a wide range of climates and its tolerances for cold, heat, drought and shade.
  • Requires less water, fertilizer and mowing than Kentucky Blue Grass
  • Grows in clumps, doesn’t spread and self-heal like Kentucky Blue Grass, bare patches have to be reseeded.
