Kentucky  Bluegrass

Our Kentucky Bluegrass sod is a dark-green, medium textured turf that is perfect for northern lawns. It grows quickly in the cooler months of fall, winter, and spring. Blade growth is parallel to one another giving the appearance of an upright or tall lawn. It can self-repair when injured, and has a moderate wear tolerance. During the warmer summer months if stressed for water it can go dormant.

RTF®  – Rhizomatous Tall Fescue

RTF® sod is an advanced generation of turf-type tall fescue which produces rhizomes. A rhizome is an underground stem that penetrates laterally through the soil to spread the plant. Rhizomes send shoots up to the soil surface while extending new roots downward, forming a new plant. The rhizomatous nature of RTF is similar to Kentucky bluegrass. However, unlike Kentucky bluegrass RTF will survive the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions.
