Bluegrass is the turfgrass of choice in cooler northern areas. The color and texture are exceptional with the right growing conditions. Sunlight, good soil and a regular water supply are key to a beautiful bluegrass lawn.
Do not confuse this ornamental grass with tall fescue, which is often found in lawns. Older varieties of the latter are often regarded simply as common lawn weeds, while newer types are valued as low-care grasses for your lawn.
