new Southern Blue grass variety from NG Turf, sod near atlanta, ga

New Grass Variety Debuts at Historic Home

Mike and Missy Dugan recently restored their historic Sears Catalog home in Carrollton, Georgia. They topped off their huge renovation with a brand new sod variety, which will help this Victorian beauty look its best in every season.

About the Project

Archstone laid nearly 18 pallets of Southern Blue sod, a cross between Texas bluegrass and Kentucky bluegrass, around this unique home. The dark green color helps highlight the new plantings as well as the stunning white architectural elements of the home.

Because Southern Blue is a cool season grass, it will maintain its rich green color year round, perfect for a historic home. It will also tolerate a mix of full sun and shade in the Dugan yard.

About the Grass

Southern Blue is an innovative grass variety developed through a partnership between NG Turf and Texas A&M University, currently available in limited supply. The hybrid offers the benefits of cold hardiness and year round green of a cool season grass, while also providing superior drought and wear tolerance compared to other cool season grasses.

Whereas cool season grasses like tall fescue require reseeding to rebound after damage or drought,  Southern Blue has rhizomes, which are lateral roots that can send up new shoots, allowing the grass to regenerate—no overseeding required.
