There's a reason we call this our ‘Blue Ribbon’ Kentucky Bluegrass Seed Blend. Over twenty years of hands-on experience, research and customer feedback has gone into developing this seed mix. The result is a premium blend of elite type Kentucky bluegrasses and perennial ryegrasses designed to provide the highest quality genetic color and texture while reducing the need for constant fertilizing.
By using this combination, we take advantage of the unique strengths of both. The ryegrasses grow quickly to establish the lawn, while the slower growing bluegrasses come in later and push out other species to provide the fantastic color and feel to this lawn. Our most popular and requested blend, it's perfect for residential lawns, sport turf, heavy traffic areas and areas where children and pets play outside. This seed blend is designed to perform best in the northern United States, from northern California to Illinois and New York.
