Navy Kentucky Bluegrass
Navy Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) offers excellent performance for your lawn, park, or sports field, at an affordable price. Navy has a medium‐dark green genetic color allowing it to blend well with our elite 5‐Steps Above varieties, but with the added benefit of earlier spring green‐up and fast establishment. Navy is adapted to all areas of Kentucky bluegrass use, from coast to coast, and into the cooler portions of the Transition zone.
Navy is an aggressive variety with fast establishment, which means better competition against weeds. With ideal soil temperatures and consistent irrigation, tests have shown Navy to germinate in under 10 days!
Early Spring Green‐up
Navy is an early maturing variety, and it jumps out of the ground earlier in the spring to give your sod or landscape mix an edge on spring green‐up. Navy is well suited for areas with early spring use and for competing with spring weeds.
Recommended Seeding Rate
New establishment: 2‐3 lbs./1000 ft.2 (10‐15 g/M2 ) by itself, or blended with other bluegrasses. Overseeding into existing turf: 3‐4 lbs./1,000 ft.2 (or 15‐20 g/M2 )
Mix Navy with 20% ryegrass or 80% tall fescue.
