Perennial Rye is a fast growing, bunch grass with dark green, fine leaves. Perennial Rye is an irrigated turf, however due to its deep roots once it has been established, it requires less frequent watering than traditional Kentucky Bluegrass lawns. Perennial rye can be mowed very short giving a golf course look. Perennial rye looks like Kentucky Bluegrass making it a good mix or as a stand alone lawn.
