The best of both worlds: Kentucky Bluegrass and Fescue Sod

Kentucky Bluegrass is soft and vibrant with a signature bluish-green tint. Highly tolerant to cold, it's a prime choice for areas that experience frigid winters. However, kentucky bluegrass is high-maintenance, requiring above-average amounts of water due to it's shallow root systems. While it's one of the sofest types of grass out there, it's more susceptible to being trampled and is not ideal for high-traffic lawns.

Tall fescue is a bit rough under bare feet, but it's low-maintenance and extremely hardy. It has a deep root system, making it extremely resilient againsts droughts and damage and requires average water intake. Tall fescue also has a high heat tolerance and moderate shade tolerance, making it a great choice for lawns in hotter climates that don't always receive full sun.
