This is the most common cool-season grass. If taken care of it will stay green year-round. Can’t be cut short without damage.
- Better heat tolerance than other cool-season grasses.
- Shade and drought tolerant
- Resistant to most disease
- Maintains color most, if not all year

Kind of like tall fescue’s 1st cousin. Similar grasses but the differences are important.

- Grows in with great density and color
- Spreads well
- Recovers from damage quickly
- Tolerant to disease, and wear and tear
- Does not do well in shaded areas
- Susceptible to Leaf Spot and Necrotic Ring Spot Diseases
- Has to be dethatched more often
- Slow germination compared to tall fescue
Not as aesthetically pleasing as tall fescue and Kentucky blue, Perennial Ryegrass has established its place in the cool season lineup.
- Germinates very quickly
- Can be used for permanent or temporary lawns
- It is a natural pre-emergent preventing some weeds from germinating
- Tolerant to light shade
- Can be drought tolerant
- Requires high maintenance
- Does not do well in the heat
- Low tolerance to drought
- If used as primary grass for too long, it can become thin and stemmy
