|Kentucky bluegrass is well suited to your growing region and will actually grow well in sandy soils. Lawns growing on sandy soils may require slightly more frequent watering and feeding but should otherwise provide you with a nice lawn. When preparing the site for seeding, a few inches of compost mixed into the top 3-4 inches of soil will help your new grass root well.
