In exciting news, building off of those winning relationships, the team at Colbert Lawn Service is now sharing monthly tips on how to have the best lawn possible.

This month’s piece of advice: planting only one type of grass and/or the wrong kind. Variety is the spice of life and a necessary ingredient for a healthy law as well. When planting grass seed, choose a variety of seeds so your lawn is more likely to weather poor conditions, like heat and drought. It is also worth noting that different kinds of grasses are meant to be successful in different regions of the country. The United States is divided into three zones that run across the country like cake layers. There’s a zone for warm-season grasses (south), one for cool-season grasses (north) and a transitional zone in the middle where it can be a challenge to grow grass. Make sure to select the grass seed most conducive for success in your region of the country. A few to consider are:

Grass Type: Pros: Cons:
Fine Fescue Excellent in shade.

Tolerant of drought and infertile soils.

Intolerant of high temperatures.

Doesn’t grow well in wet soil conditions.

Kentucky Bluegrass High-quality appearance.

Has good low-temperature hardiness.

Poor shade tolerance.

Slow to establish.

Perennial Ryegrass Used for overseeding and cover.

Good wear tolerance.

Least cold-hardy in the cool season.

Not recommended as a standalone turf grass; better used as part of a seed mixture.
