Kentucky Bluegrass is the most popular type of lawn grass in the Midwest. Proprietary bluegrass varieties are very dark green and beautiful. Kentucky Bluegrass also mixes well with ryegrass to provide a very nice lawn. Bluegrass takes the most maintenance ofl any turfgrass and will go dormant before ryegrasses and tall fescues. Bluegrass generally germinates in 20-25 days.
