Kentucky Bluegrass will have more density in the blade and be a thicker grass, but not by much. Bluegrass also requires cooler weather and more shade, so if you live in a hot, dry, arid climate I would use Fescue. No one will ever know.

Keep in mind that there is more than one type of Fescue.

As long as you can work the ground you can install fescue/bluegrass. Can ZOYZIA sod be placed in January ?

Calculate the square footage of your yard. Determine which type of seed you will be using. There are some variations in amount of seed needed depending on the type of seed used. Some common types are Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue. Kentucky Bluegrass requires two to three pounds for each 1,000 square feet. Tall Fescue requires six to eight pounds for each 1,000 square feet. Calculate the total pounds of seed needed. Divide the total square feet of your lawn by 1,000. Then multiply that number by the pounds of seed needed per 1,000 square feet.

One different type of grass is perennial ryegrass. There's also bent grass, rough bluegrass, red fescue, Bahia grass, and centipede grass.

Yes, some grass seed varieties are safer for pets than others. For example, Bermudagrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, and Tall Fescue may be considered particularly pet-friendly. They respond to heavy traffic and playful pets by producing attractive, thick growth and re-growth nicely and quickly.

Pretty well all types of grasses. Brome, Fescue, Bluegrass, Orchard grass, and Wheatgrass are just a few of the many types of grasses that are grown for cattle to graze and are grown to be used as hay.

The best time to plant fescue is in the fall.

Ornamec over the top by PBI/ Gordan will kill Bermuda in fescue & Zoysia grass. Using it on Fescue is best done in the spring when Bermuda starts actively growing & just before dormancy in the fall. Follow the directions carefully & do not over mix as it can kill fescue. The herbicide will put fescue in stress, but will come back green in about 2weeks or less. Be sure to apply to a healthy stand of fescue that is not already stressed from low water, extreme heat, & soil pH levels.

The only thing I have found that will kill tall fescue or creeping fescue is "Roundup."tm

User Avatar

Yes but make sure the fescue has been close first before you apply the rye grass, otherwise the fescue, which is a very competitive grass, will take over the ryegrass.

User Avatar

Tall Fescue, Red Fescue, Ryegrass/Annual/Perennial, KY Bluegrass, KY-31, and Bentgrass are a few good choices. Late summer/early fall planting of grass is considered better than spring planting. Fall planting gives new grass two complete growing seasons before it goes through the hot, dry summer of the following year.

A full pallet of fescue sod will cost between $80 and $100. A pallet of sod covers approximately 514 square feet.

Since there are many different types of rangelands of every different vegetation zone, topography, soil, etc. that exist in the world, it's easier to answer this question with an example. So, in the Rough Fescue Grassland of Central Alberta (primarily east of Edmonton, in the Aspen Parkland), an invader plant would be Kentucky Bluegrass; other invaders include Dandelion, Russian Thistle, Chickweed, Foxtail Barley, Wild Oats, and Quackgrass. Invaders differ with different rangeland areas.

Dicamba, mecoprop, triclopyr, and 2,4-D are herbicides that kill weeds in fine fescue. The best known fine fescue is red fescue (Festuca rubra) because of fine leaves for soft matting, low fertilization and irrigation need, and shade and sun tolerances. It tends to overseed dormant Bermuda grass lawns and will tolerate established turfgrass herbicides except for 2,4-D + dichlorprop + dicamba.
