Lawn Care in Philadelphia, PA


Pennsylvania is a state of many "firsts." Including the first oil well, presidential mansion, daily newspaper, zoological garden, computer, and auto service station. It's also the home of the first baseball stadium, which dates back to 1909. That first baseball stadium also required decent grass to make the players and audience happy. Although turfgrass is frequently used on baseball stadiums and in other public recreational areas, it is also an excellent choice for residential lawns. There are many different kinds of turfgrass in PA. Planting the right type of grass improves your home's appearance, adds to your neighborhood's aesthetic appeal, and even increases your property's value.


Establishing a Philadelphia Lawn


In Pennsylvania, you'll find turfgrasses especially adapted to the local climate, which makes the cost of lawn care and maintenance (in terms of money and time) significantly less. Some grasses are known for their durability too, meaning you could even play baseball on your property. Before starting to plant or repair a lawn, it's essential to keep some considerations in mind. Including what color grass you want, what kind of use you'll get from your lawn, and whether or not you are trying to fill in patches or replant an entire lawn.


Regardless of what kind of grass you choose, the College of Agricultural Sciences at Penn State says that the best time to establish a new lawn is early in the fall. Furthermore, keep in mind that coarser grasses are ideal for patching brown spots, but they might not be an optimal choice for aesthetics. Here is a guide to the grasses that have adapted to the local climate and their basic characteristics.


  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Fine Fescue
  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • Tall Fescue
  • Fine Fescue


Perennial ryegrass is a top choice for trying to regrow a barren spot on your property. Perennial ryegrass has a relatively fine texture and tolerates drought well. It does not tolerate cold as well as other species. You should combine it with other cool-season grasses, such as bluegrass for optimal results. Perennial ryegrass typically germinates and grows quickly. If you are planning to add Perennial ryegrass to your property, be sure that the seeds have time to establish before summer, as the seedlings can become damaged by drought.


Fine fescue is another good option for lawn grass. Unlike many lawn grasses, Fine fescue grows well in the shade. Be sure, however, to avoid heavy shade. The area should receive at least a few hours of sunlight daily for the grass to grow. Fine fescue is another good choice for filling in thin or barren patches of ground on your lawn. It can thrive in many conditions that cause trouble for other types of grass, including soils with low moisture levels, soils with poor nutrient composition, and lawns that get too much shade. Fine fescue does best with some fertilization as it is emerging. It is a low-maintenance grass compared to many, and it can be mixed with many kinds of cool-season turfgrasses.


Kentucky bluegrass is a cool-season grass that does well in Pennsylvania. Kentucky bluegrass catches the eye with its dark green and blue color. Kentucky bluegrass is a highly adaptable grass that has a beautiful texture. Its overall high quality also means that Kentucky bluegrass can endure cold winter temperatures better than many varieties of grass seed. This grass prefers full sunlight, but it can be added to the mixture if you have a lawn that gets a lot of shade. Kentucky bluegrass can be established either as seed or sod. This grass takes about one to three months to germinate, during which time it will need a bit more attention and care.


Tall fescue is a low-maintenance grass that has a coarse texture. It has a high tolerance for disease and insects, and it can grow well even in soil that has few nutrients. Tall fescue grows quickly, but not as fast as some other species like Perennial ryegrass. Once Tall fescue is established, it holds up well to foot traffic, and it has a deep root system that makes it resilient to drought. Tall fescue should be mowed regularly in the summer, but never down to more than one-third of its height.


Fine fescue is another variety with low maintenance requirements. Fine fescue can be planted alone in your yard or used as a mix. It can survive even in the shade, which makes it a natural choice for planting under trees and in other areas where many grasses won't grow. Fine fescue does not require much moisture, and it is one of the lowest-maintenance options available when it comes to establishing a lawn.


Even with the hardiest species, you'll need to put some effort into establishing and maintaining a lawn. If you need help, you can always reach out to a professional for assistance. Once you have the hard work taken care of, you will have much more free time to explore the area.
