Bluegrass....
Nature's Masterpiece

photos/bluegrass.jpg.w180h142.jpgWhen it comes to native grasses, Kentucky bluegrass is truly Mother Nature's Masterpiece. When left untended in the wild, this tough productive grass will aggressively crowd out most other grass varieties including fescues. As recently as 40 years ago, the majority of the bluegrass seed grown in the country was grown and processed right here in our area.


Bluegrass will make the most desirable lawn with the least effort of any turfgrass species for 10 months out of the year.  Improved varieties of Kentucky bluegrass produce the darkest green color available for lawn grasses.  Bluegrass has runners that allow it to spread, fill in bare spots, and repair itself from damage.  This turf quality makes it more wear tolerant than fescues or buffalo grasses and ideal for safe playing surfaces on sports fields or front lawns.

Local sod growers who take pride in their turf know the bluegrass secret.  In cool weather, feed it hard and mow it close and the weeds will disappear.

While bluegrass requires some irrigation to maintain summer color, mature bluegrass can survive extended droughts in a dormant state.  Irrigating bluegrass with 1 inch of water on ten day intervals in July and August and reduced mowing will sustain most bluegrass color.

The Kentucky bluegrass varieties recommended for Omaha are Corsair®, Loveland Blue™ and Bluemaster® blends. These varieties show characteristics for dark color, disease resistance, heat tolerance, and wearability that make them an excellent choice for Omaha lawns.  Estate Mix™, which include some sports turf ryegrass, is an excellent choice for spring seeding fall renovation.
