Grass

If you’re looking for a grass that can survive all four seasons, Kentucky bluegrass is the best option for you when the month’s temperatures are cool. It is one of the most popular choices for lawns throughout the Midwest and forms a high quality, dense sod when grown properly. Kentucky Bluegrass ranges from bright green to deep blueish green and grows plush, perfect for bare feet!

How well do you know your lawn?

MOWING

  • Mow at 1.5-2.5 inches
  • Mow relatively high during warm months

IRRIGATION

  • Water frequently, every 1-3 days during the summer
  • Water only when the grass needs the extra moisture.  The ground should be moist but not soggy.

WEEDING

  • Most bluegrass lawns are thick enough to choke out most of the weeds.
  • Newly planted lawns and lawns that have thinned out over time both will most likely develop weeds and should be treated immediately in the spring.

Plants & Trees

Perennials

Are often used to solve troublesome spots in the landscape. Some of these areas might be wet, dry or shady, or possess infertile soil. Perennials are effective as background plantings, for naturalizing or simply as a border to define a planting bed.

Wet areas could be planted with Iris sibirica, Monarda didyma and Viola odorata. For dry areas, consider using Achillea or Hemerocallis. Where the soil is poor, Gypsophila or Blue False Indigo (Baptisia australis) could be used.

For tall background plantings, consider Phlox paniculata or Boltonia asteroides ‘Snowbank.’ Naturalized plantings may use the Prairie Gayfeather (Liatris) or Echinacea, while rocky areas will accommodate plantings of Columbine (Aquilegia) and Basket-of-Gold (Aurinia saxatilis ‘Citrina’)

Borders can be accented effectively with Snow-In-Summer (Cerastium tomentosum) or Phlox subulata (Moss Pink).

Perennial selection can be made on the basis of flower color and the season of bloom. The following selections will highlight these qualities.
