  • With drought so prevalent in the West, water use on urban landscapes is being closely scrutinized with up to 60% of urban water use directed to landscape irrigation-primarily our lawns.
  • Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) is widely used because of its soft texture, attractive color, and ability to recover from intensive use.
  • More water-efficient varieties of Kentucky bluegrass may result in less irrigation yet maintain quality and function of the turf.
