Heat-Tolerant Blue Grass Seed
Several years ago when we lived in Ohio I planted a new lawn area I knew I would never be able to water after the grass became established. (I was able to keep it watered to get the grass seed going.) I planted Scotts Turf Builder Heat-Tolerant Blue Grass Seed. This mix contains three turf-type tall fescues along with Scotts exclusive Thermal Kentucky Bluegrass. The bluegrass provides spreading capability (new plants from existing plants) that you don’t get with tall fescues. This also helps with disease resistance and recovery. Thermal Blue is not just any old bluegrass. The plant breeders were after heat and drought tolerance when they developed it. Check out my Heat-Tolerant Blue lawn in this video:
