Recommended Grass For Michigan Lawns

Michigan Lawns consist primarily of Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Fine Fescues (Creeping Red).  Kentucky Bluegrass is the most common lawn found in Michigan.  It is often established with the addition of Perennial Ryegrass to allow for faster establishment & cover. Bluegrass seeds can often take several months to germinate, while Ryegrass will germinate fast (7-14 days) and can provide erosion control and cover until the Bluegrass dominates. Creeping Red is often added in to lawn areas where shade issues are a problem though it can be planted as a species even in full sun.

Other Grasses:
Bentgrass is often found as a weed in Michigan lawns. It is not very drought or heat tolerant and looks rough in manicured lawns cut at normal heights. Improved varieties are used on golf greens mowed at low heights with reel mowers. Most turf agronomist recommend that homeowners do not plant this grass due to high maintenance issues.

Rough Bluegrass is found in shady areas but is generally considered a weed. Its primary use is in moist / shaded sites.

Tall Fescue is considered a weed also in Bluegrass lawns, but pure stands make a drought tolerant, wear tolerant grass on playgrounds, industrial sites and roadsides. It has gained in popularity with the newer turf quality varieties available for home lawn use.

Zoysia is planted some in Michigan, but its short summer season of green limits its use. It will be dormant and brown colored from fall through late spring.
