Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass seed is recommended for use on athletic fields, golf courses, sod blends, parks, professional landscapes, and home lawns areas where Kentucky Bluegrass is adapted. It is compatible in blends with other darker green, lower growing Bluegrasses and in mixtures with strong creeping red fescues and improved “II” and “III” series of turf-type perennial ryegrasses.

A Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass lawn will perform in sandy or heavy clay soils. Like all Bluegrasses, it performs best in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8.0. Three to five lbs. N/1000 sq. ft./year is adequate in most areas of the United states. However, because of Midnight’s dark genetic color, lower fertilizer rates will yield acceptable color. A balanced fertilizer of 3:1:2 ratio of NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) with sulphur is recommended in most geographic locations.

Midnight, like all Kentucky Bluegrasses, requires about 3 weeks for complete germination. Color may be observed before that time, however, in good growing weather where soil temperatures are above 65 degrees F., expect 3 to 4 weeks for a complete stand of grass. Kentucky Bluegrass turf grass has good mowing qualities and can be maintained at a cutting height of 1/2 to 2 inches.

  • New turf: Sow 2 - 3 pounds Midnight KBG seed per 1,000 square feet or 80 -120 lbs per acre
  • Over-seeding: Sow 1 - 1 1/2 pounds Midnight Bluegrass seed per 1,000 square feet or 40 - 60 lbs per acre for broadcast over-seeding
  • Plant Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass lawn seed when soil temperature reaches 55 degrees in spring up until a minimum of 8 weeks before frost in fall
