Increasing rhizomes growth?

paulsiu(5a)May 29, 2011

Last year, my lawn got damaged by grubs, so I was hoping to get the blue grass to repair by using rhizome spread. What can I do to help that along?

I thought of giving the plant more food, but I was looking at the following link:

Kentucky Bluegrass

It said that rhizomes growth appears in early summer when leaf growth slows, and adding nitrogen actually causes leaf growth and therefore slows rhizomes spread.

Your link is invalid.
KBG roots grow best during cooler weather of spring and fall.
Fertilizing too early in spring forces the plants energy into shoot growth rather than root growth.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
