HTN Kentucky Bluegrass residential lawn, Longmont, CO

What’s the Best Bluegrass for Your Colorado Lawn?

Bluegrass is the most widely planted sod in Colorado, and for good reason. Bluegrass retains its deep blue/green color, even in winter. This versatile, durable grass is well suited for home lawns, commercial properties, golf courses, and sports fields in the Rocky Mountain region. Its deep root structure and dense rhizomes make it extremely wear-tolerant for families to spend time outside on the lawn or for sports facilities. Horizon Turf Nursery grows two distinct Bluegrass sod mixes. Both are considered “hybrid” grass mixes that meet Colorado’s hybrid turf standards.
