Cool-Season Grasses

Among the best cool-season types are:

Kentucky bluegrass--One of the most popular. It requires moderate care to
grow dense, dark, and medium-textured

Fescue--Usually combined with bluegrasses, it tolerates shade and dry
conditions, and seldom needs fertilizer.

Tall Fescue--Relatively new in popularity this grass is drought-tolerant and
excellent for high-traffic areas.

Perennial ryegrass--Quick growing and tough. It makes a fine-textures lawn when
mixed with Kentucky bluegrass.

Bent grass--Needs frequent watering and fertilizer. Best used for a golf course.
