I'm not sure which turfgrass you're referencing. Typically a lawn that remains gree all year around contains a mixture of bermuda, which is a warm season grass, that's overseeded with perennial ryegrass (a cool season grass). As the seasons change one turf type will go dormant and the other will green up. I found a publication from your local cooperative extension office that might help you decide which turf is the best for you. Here's the website: Since the address is long you may need to copy and paste it into your browser's address bar. Hope it helps!
