Tall Fescue

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.

Advantages

  • Better heat tolerance than other cool-season grasses.
  • Shade and drought tolerant
  • Resistant to most disease
  • Maintains color most, if not all year

Disadvantages

  • Has to be reseeded every year in the Fall
  • Recovers slowly from damage

Kentucky Blue

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

Advantages

  • Does really well in full sun
  • Grows in with great density and color
  • Spreads well
  • Recovers from damage quickly
  • Tolerant to disease, and wear and tear

Disadvantages

  • 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

Rye

Not as aesthetically pleasing as tall fescue and Kentucky blue, Perennial Ryegrass has established its place in the cool season lineup.

Advantages

  • 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

Disadvantages

  • 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
