Establishing a Lawn in Merrifield


Lawn grasses and turf grasses are both commonly found in VA, which is described as a "transition zone" by Virginia Tech. This means it can experience fluctuations in temperature and weather patterns. This change in condition might seem taxing on vegetation. But luckily, there are a variety of grasses that have adapted to the local climate. This includes a number of warm-season and cool-season grasses that do well throughout the year. Collectively, they give your property a healthy look and can minimize the need for extensive lawn care in Merrifield.


  • Tall Fescue
  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Bermuda
  • Zoysia


There are more than 100 different types of Tall fescue, which is a popular prairie grass. This grass, which grows to eight feet tall, is ideal for establishing a thick groundcover. Tall fescue is a cool-season grass with deep roots. This makes it more resistant to drought than other grasses. Tall fescue is often used for decorating a neighborhood lawn. In the wild, it is a good source of food and shelter for wildlife. This hardy grass is an excellent choice for a low-maintenance species that requires minimal effort to maintain.


Kentucky bluegrass is recognizable for its lush blue-green hue. Its leaf blades have a fine to medium texture, giving your yard a fuller and thicker appearance. Kentucky bluegrass requires a moderate amount of water to get started. Over time, however, the watering and maintenance needs lessen. Kentucky bluegrass enjoys full sun and does best when mowed at a height of 1.5 to 2.5 inches.


Perennial ryegrass, naturally a prairie grass, is another grass frequently seen on VA lawns. Ryegrass endured a brief dip in popularity during the 1990s, but it has once again established a reputation as a desirable lawn grass. This grass also thrives in full sun. It is a quickly-germinating grass that gives your property a thick groundcover. Perennial ryegrass can be mowed to a short height of one inch.


Bermuda is also a turfgrass grown on many lawns. It requires regular monitoring and maintenance, however, as it grows quickly and can become a nuisance if it spreads to your garden. Bermuda grass has an attractive green shade that is fitting with a number of properties. There are many cultivars of Bermuda that you can choose from, too. Bermuda grass enjoys full sun and doesn't have a high shade tolerance.


Although it is a warm-season grass, Zoysia is quite durable and can withstand a cold Virginia winter remarkably well. Zoysia grows more slowly than other grasses like Bermuda, meaning it's a good choice for adding to (or establishing) a ground cover over time.
