The Q&A Archives: Grass

Question: How can I find out what type of grass is growing in my lawn? I believe it is Kentucky Blue because of the area I live in (Chicago), but I am not sure.

Answer: Unless your lawn in fairly new, it is probably a mixture of grasses. It typically takes 3-5 years for a single grass variety (such as Kentucy Bluegrass) to be invaded by other grasses in the area. You can try digging up a sample and taking it to a local nursery or garden center, or you can visit this website:
and look at the photos and read the characteristics of each grass type listed.

Hope this helps!
