The First Day of Spring is in just a few short days. Are you already preparing for how you’re going to make your lawn stand out beautifully this season? A great lawn adds immense curb appeal to your home, which increases its value. If you are looking to transform your yard with new grass, it’s best to know your options. Aqua-Bright is here to help you select the best type of grass for your Maryland lawn.
Tall Fescue Grass
Tall fescue is a cool season grass that is increasingly in popularity due to its ability to tolerate shade, heat, and drought. Tall fescue grass is turf-like and can stand strong against common wear and foot traffic. Tall fescues tend to stay greener for longer throughout the summer, usually being one of the last types of grass to brown. If your lawn doesn’t get a lot of sunshine, this is a great option for you.
Perennial ryegrasses have a rich, dark green color that makes for a beautiful lawn. They are incredibly resistant to heat and drought and can withstand a heavy amount of foot traffic. In freezing temperatures, they are prone to diseases. Perennial ryegrasses require full sunlight for optimal performance so if your lawn is shaded this grass isn’t a great choice for you.
Kentucky bluegrass is known for its great texture and dark green color. This grass is incredibly common and functional in Maryland lawns. If you are looking for a grass that grows and spreads easily, this is a great choice. This grass can tolerate some shade, but not a lot of it. Installing an irrigation system is effective way to manage upkeep for this popular grass in Maryland.
A common choice for Maryland lawns is the combination of a few different kinds of grass. The mixture can help your lawn in different ways. For example, a mixture of fescue, rye, and bluegrasses would create grass with a soft texture that is tolerant of heat, shade, and heavy foot traffic.
