Cool Season grasses include grasses such as Rye grass, the different Fescue grasses like Tall Fescue, and Kentucky Blue Grass. All these grasses are grown from seed into a single stem plant. Cool season turf is grown from seed by turf suppliers and growers, and can be installed as turf rolls. If the turf has suffered any damage or thinning out, the lawn area can be over sown with the same grass seed to increase density of the turf grass. It is important to understand the germination characteristics of different seed varieties and when is the best time to spread the seed for best seed germination results in Georgia .

These grasses (including Kikuyu, Couch/Bermuda, Zoysia, Seashore Paspalum and Durban) with both stolons and rhizomes are characterized by their robust nature and rate of recovery in Springtime. In particular, Kikuyu and Couch grasses are used widely in sports field situations, and as such can be mowed quite short depending on the turf grass’s use.

These leaves fall from the tree's branches and cover the ground with a layer of decaying vegetation.

With the correct tools and precautions, you can prevent injury to your back and body while keeping your lawn looking its best.
