Common in most of Virginia, cool-season turfgrass species include tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. They grow actively in spring and fall, and may go dormant during hot, dry periods when not watered. You can plant a single variety, or plant a mixture of all three. Your local nursery will have customized seed mixtures especially for your region. Best wishes with your new lawn!
