Saratoga Sod offers northern turfgrass blends and mixtures:
∙ 100% Kentucky bluegrass
∙ Kentucky Bluegrass/Fine Fescue mix (50/50)
∙ Turf Type Tall Fescue
Not sure which type to choose?
∙ Kentucky bluegrass is dark green, uniform in color and texture, and tolerates full sun to partial shade.
∙ Bluegrass/Fescue mix is more versatile, shade tolerant and drought tolerant than the straight bluegrass. However, because it contains two different species of grasses, the stand is not as uniform in color or texture as 100% Kentucky bluegrass. If you are trying to patch an area of grass or installing next to an existing lawn, the mix may be the sod of choice.
∙ Turf Type Tall Fescue is deep rooted, drought and shade tolerant and provides good wear tolerance.
∙ Neither type of sod is superior to the other; it just depends on your needs. Be sure to specify with your order which type of sod you would prefer.
How much Sod do you need?
