McKay’s Kentucky Bluegrass is a good-looking cool season grass. It is suited to areas with mild to warm summers and colder winters, like the weather in Victoria and Tasmania. While Kentucky Blue does have runners, they are no-where near as aggressive as a couch of kikuyu seed, making this grass a good fit for any backyard with low garden beds.
Overall, Kentucky Bluegrass is a beautiful looking lawn (with a slight blue tinge) and very soft under foot, it’s a good grass for the colder climates of Australia, including Victoria and Tasmania.

Mixed Kentucky with RTF for great results sowing int he last week of May. Grass has reached around 8cm in height since plating (1 month) and germinated in approximately 6 days. Very impressed. Postage and customer service was also top notch.
