Bluegrasses by Barenbrug

Kentucky bluegrass is a strong turf component commonly used across the temperate and cooler climates of the U.S. Highly desired for its strong rhizomatous growth habit and unmistakable turf quality, Kentucky bluegrass is an extremely varied species. It may exhibit a multitude of unique, desirable traits that differ significantly from one variety to another, including color, texture, disease resistance, traffic tolerance and temperature tolerance. Barenbrug’s Turf Blue HGT and Turf Blue Pro blends have been trialed and tested in the market to bring out the best of each variety while being affordable to all end-users.
