Lawn Care in Milwaukee, WI


Although it's not near the ocean, Wisconsin has some of the highest volumes of water within its borders of any state in the country. Wisconsin is home to more than 7,000 rivers and streams. These waterways cover more than 26,000 miles combined, which is enough to circumnavigate the globe. Within Door County alone you'll find more than 250 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and five state parks. That's more natural area than any other county in the country. Wisconsin is also home to some of the nation's oldest and most popular state parks. As you've probably already guessed, the state's climate is naturally conducive to supporting a variety of plant and animal life. If you're a homeowner, that means there are many kinds of grasses and flowers that you can plant in your yard to make it look attractive.


Creating an Attractive Wisconsin Lawn


Every homeowner envisions having a beautiful lawn that the neighbors envy. However, getting a head-turning lawn doesn't just happen overnight. It requires some planning and foresight to get a thick, lush, healthy property. Luckily, there are many good choices available for establishing a picturesque yard in Wisconsin. By paying attention to the local conditions of your property, such sun and shade conditions, soil type, and existing grass type, you'll be able to select an ideal grass. Generally, the state's climate is best suited to cool-season grasses that prefer colder temperatures and can survive through frost or cold spells. Regardless of whether you're just starting out planting a lawn or you are looking to fill in sparse patches, here are some excellent native grasses to consider.


  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • Fine Fescue
  • Bent Grass
  • Perennial Ryegrass


Kentucky bluegrass, notes the University of Wisconsin, is the most common lawn grass in the state. Kentucky bluegrass is a cool-season grass that is available in several different varieties. It is widespread throughout much of the US too, including many Midwestern states, for its ability to endure cooler temperatures. With its dark green hue and blue shades, Kentucky bluegrass is also one of the most aesthetically appealing grasses. It is easy to grow and maintain once established, although it may need a bit more TLC than other grasses to get started. This includes higher water and fertilizer requirements until it is established, but those requirements will lessen as the grass matures. Kentucky bluegrass does well in shade or partial shade.


Fine fescue is a turfgrass that also withstands shade and cooler temperatures. Like Kentucky bluegrass, it is a cool-season grass that grows best in the fall and spring. Fine fescue requires less fertilizer and water than many other types of turfgrass. However, it is not the most durable grass, which means it's not the best choice if your property is heavily used. Fine fescue doesn't reach a tall height when mature, which means it can go for long periods of time in between mowing. However, it should be mowed at least every few weeks to keep it from thinning out, and to retain optimal health. Since Fine fescue doesn't spread very quickly, it can be combined with other grasses to create a diverse lawn.


Bentgrass is a common species on golf courses because of its durability. This grass produces a dense groundcover with a uniform color and texture, which adds to its appeal in commercial applications. The caveat with Bentgrass, however, is that it does need proper care to look its best. Bentgrass doesn't need as much water as other types of grass. However, its roots are relatively shallow, which means it will need more frequent watering in hot, dry weather. Bentgrass also requires more frequent watering in the seedling stage to grow.


Perennial ryegrass is another turfgrass that does well in Wisconsin. It grows in bunches or clusters, making it an excellent choice for establishing a thick, healthy groundcover. Perennial ryegrass gives your yard an attractive appearance. It is a medium-textured grass with a beautiful bright green color that can also withstand moderate wear. Perennial ryegrass is also quick to establish and makes an excellent choice for erosion control. However, ryegrass is one of the shorter-lived varieties, which means that it will require overseeding to extend its longevity. Perennial ryegrass does well with other types of cool-season grass, making it a popular choice for creating grass blends. It does exceptionally well when paired with Kentucky bluegrass.


As you'll discover, choosing the right grass for your lawn gives you more free time to enjoy other things. Luckily, there is plenty to see and do in Milwaukee throughout the year.
