Perennial ryegrass is a unique type of cool-season grass that fits both pastures and home lawns. Maryland residents love ryegrass because it thrives in warm summers and cool winters. In a state that experiences many different climates, you’ll enjoy a light green lawn all year with ryegrass.
Often called a nurse grass because it can protect other types of seeds, ryegrass has a few uses in northern and southern yards. Some people use this grass alongside tall fescue or overseed their dormant lawn with winter ryegrass.
With Maryland’s weather range, ryegrass lawns are a great option for any southeastern home. You can learn more about ryegrass to decide what’s right for you, and we at OrganicLawns will get you started on the growing process.
Ryegrass is common for farmers that need a high-yield pasture for grazing animals. However, even if you don’t have livestock, you can enjoy this durable grass.
Many homeowners choose perennial ryegrass because it establishes quicker than most other seeds. Known for its fast germination, you’ll see a green and mowable lawn less than a month after seeding. Not to be confused with annual ryegrass, perennial ryegrass returns every year with its fine blades and sage green color.
Ryegrass is great for northern lawns and provides drought-tolerant protection in every season. This seed loves sunlight and can thrive with partial shade in cooler months. For southern homeowners that like green grass all year, OrganicLawns can overseed your existing lawns with winter ryegrass.
