According to Trugreen lawn care, there are many types of grass that performed particularly well in regions such as Atlanta and Knoxville. While the climate is marginally different in these two areas, it seems that soil conditions are similar, which means they can generally cope with the same types of grass. Indeed, when looking at a review on the different types of lawn seeds on sites such as Yelp, Consumer Affairs, or Glassdoor, you will find that most people mention their prefer type of grass is either fescue or centipede.
Trugreen Lawn Care on Fescue and Centipede Grass
Fescue grass is one most suitable to cold seasons. Because of this, it is actually very difficult to grow in Atlanta. However it is its inherent beauty that makes people, and particularly those with either green fingers or the ability to hire a company like Trugreen, to choose it for their lawns. Grass, requires between 4 and 5 hours of sunlight everyday. However this should not be full sun as it doesn’t tolerate heat well. Additionally, is needs watering several times each week as it is not drought resistant at all. The main reason why people still choose it, it’s because of how green and lush it is between the fall and the spring. Yes, it will turn brown during summer unless it is very well maintained. During summer, it requires water but also coolness and shade. It is a high maintenance type of long and it must be a rated comma lined comma and overseed it every year. It also requires regular fertilisation, but they should not be done after the middle of May as this can encourage the growth of fungus. It is also a long grass, needing to be between 3 and 4 inches in height. The best place to have fescue is in areas where there is also a large tree canopy.
Then, there is centipede grass. This is a type of turf grass that likes warm seasons. It is an aggressive grass that grows quite slowly but it’s highly disease resistant.centipede grass needs between 6 and 7 hours of sunlight every day period it is moderately resistant to drought. Interestingly, it is a low maintenance type of grass with only a slight nitrogen requirement. During the growing season, it only needs mowing every 2 to 3 weeks. Unfortunately, centipede grass is not very beautiful, nor is it comfortable on bare feet. Those are concessions to make for the fact that it requires so very little maintenance.
For Trugreen, neither fescue nor centipede would be their personal grass of choice. However, both have certain advantages that lead to people choosing them in both the Atlanta and the Knoxville regions. Trugreen is happy to help any client who insists on having these grasses, while talking to them honestly about the potential drawbacks of these grasses. Essentially, people have to choose between beauty and high maintenance, or discomfort and low to no maintenance if they are to consider these two types of grasses.
