Is Fescue a Warm or Cool Season Grass?

Warm and cool season grasses are grasses that thrive in different temperatures and climate types. In this part of the Midwest (Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky) cool season grasses are native. Cool-season grasses “green up” much earlier in the growing season (mid-spring) and stay greener longer into the fall, before going dormant.

Fescue is one of the more popular cool-season grasses used in Indiana. Kentucky Bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue are the most common types. At Genesis Sod Farms we sell Bluegrass and Fescue. Both Bluegrass and Fescue are amazing turf types, the perfect type depends on what is most important to you for your lawn.

Fescue turf will “green up” earlier, stay green longer, resist drought and flooding, and do well in full sun or shade.
