Patchy lawns

April 23rd, 2015 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Grass varieties come out of dormancy at different rates.  If your lawn looks more like art than grass, don’t worry.  Kentucky Bluegrass is the last grass to green up.  That means if your lawn is still dormant and not growing, you have more Kentucky Bluegrass. If neighbor’s lawn is greener than yours right now have patience, because you will have a nicer looking lawn in the summer. 


I know most people are thinking that their lawn never looked patchy before, but it might now.  While it is true that annual bluegrass and bentgrass patches keep growing and expanding every year, the reality is your lawn was spotty last spring.  The grass will blend together in another shortly and the different varieties of grass will not be as noticeable.  We take a lot of pride in our lawns, so our memories completely block this time in the spring where the grass looks bad.
