Recommended Grass For Minnesota Lawns

Several species of grass are suitable for lawns in Minnesota.

These include Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue grasses, and perennial ryegrass. Kentucky bluegrass is the most important grass for lawns in this region and produces a beautiful, dense turf. Bluegrass plants spread and fill in bare or damaged areas better than other varieties. The best time to seed a cool season lawn in Minnesota is between August 15 and September 10 when these grasses normally seed in nature.

Fine fescue grasses are narrow-leaved, shade-tolerant, and drought-tolerant. They are adapted to poor soils and low fertility levels. The fine fescues have narrow, tough leaf blades that are not easily crushed, will rarely stain clothes, but can be difficult to mow. The Fine fescues particularly well-adapted to low maintenance, shady lawn areas. For seeding a home lawn, a mixture of fine fescues and Kentucky bluegrasses is usually preferable to using straight fine fescues.

Perennial ryegrass is a cool-season, medium-textured, traffic-tolerant lawn grass. Because these plants can tolerate wear and damage, perennial ryegrass is often used on athletic fields and park areas. Perennial ryegrass is a bunch-type grass that spreads slowly. For home lawns, perennial ryegrass mixes well with Kentucky bluegrasses. Perennial ryegrass is not as tolerant of cold climates as either Kentucky bluegrass or the fine fescue grasses.
