Pennington Tall Fescue vs KBG (Mass, zone 7)
Guys, I've tried both.
KBG doesnt do well at all where I live. I get a fungus every year. I had grubs 2 years ago. It goes dormant in the summer and turns brown etc. It gets burnt easily.
However, in May/June and Sep, it does well and looks fantastic. I love the texture/color. I love the fact that the lawn repairs itself. It just looks so lush.
On the tall fescue side, it grows much better. Stronger, deeper roots, less disease etc.
However, I really dont like the texture on my feet and it doesnt spread so needs to be reseeded every other year.
If I had a TF with KBG texture and spreading properties, then I would be in heaven.
With that said, what do plant? What does a full ~4 year old tall fescue lawn look like/feel like? My lawn is only 2 years old.
