What kind of
grass seed does Bison Bluegrass use? Bison bluegrass tailors the bluegrass
seed mixture based on the sun your yard will receive. The mixture includes
several types of kentucky bluegrass and rye grass. Usually in new home construction
with full sun we use a 50/50 blend. The very high concentration of bluegrass
will keep its dark green color, has outstanding disease resistance, and very
good drought tolerance. For other homes with variable amounts of shade, we
will use one of many other seed blends to suit your needs.
And for the horse and wildlife lovers in the area, Bison Bluegrass also has a full line of forage seed.
How fast will my lawn grow if I use hydroseed? The grass should begin to come up in 5 to 7 days depending on soil temperatures and moisture. Your lawn should be ready to mow in 3 to 4 weeks.
