Best grass types for Iowa lawns

Iowa’s four seasons mean we get to enjoy all types of weather. But while we can adapt to snowy winters and hot summers, your lawn can’t. That’s why only cool-season grasses grow well here. They can handle the freezing temperatures and snow and then go dormant if it gets too hot.

Here's a breakdown of the most common cool-season grasses in Iowa:

Fine fescue 

  • Shade tolerant and low maintenance
  • Recommended for: Northern and Central Iowa

Kentucky bluegrass

  • Tolerates drought but needs regular fertilization and mowing
  • Recommended For: All of Iowa

Perennial ryegrass

  • Often used for overseeding and combined with Kentucky bluegrass and/or fine fescues. 
  • Tolerates shade and drought
  • Recommended For: Central and Southern Iowa

Tall fescue

  • Shade and heat-tolerant, high drought tolerance 
  • Recommended For: Central, Southern, and Western Iowa

Iowa Lawn Care Tips

Best Time to Mow

The best time to mow your grass in Iowa is between 8 and 10 in the morning, late afternoon, or early evening before sunset. Avoid mowing during the middle of the day when the sun is scorching the grass. 

Adjust Mowing Height

Shorter grass height slows airflow, which increases disease susceptibility. So, mow your grass at the appropriate height.

Regular Mowing Schedule

A good rule of thumb is to mow your grass weekly in the growing season and then once every two weeks when it's growing more slowly. No mowing is needed when the grass is dormant.

Aeration

In Iowa, aerating your grass is best done in the morning, during spring and fall, while the dew is still on the grass, the grass is still growing, and the ground isn’t frozen.

Fertilization

The ideal time to fertilize cool-season grasses is spring and fall while the grass is growing. Fertilization supplies the grass with essential nutrients that promote its growth and well-being.

Watering

Water your Iowa lawn early in the morning, before sunrise. The hot sun can scorch the grass blades in the middle of the day and evaporate the water before it can soak in.
