For fast growth, we add in rye grass. This quick growing seed can grow in less than a week, out competing weeds and giving the soil surface stability from erosion.
Named for the blueish green tinge it gives to the lawn, this seed variety is frequently sought out for it’s professional golf course appearance. However; Kentucky bluegrass has its flaws. In order to keep the thick, lush appearance, this grass type requires consistent nutritional boosts of fertilizer. In addition, the seed is slow to germinate making it prone to weeds.
