Grass Type

Asked June 11, 2020, 10:16 AM EDT

I recently move to Port Deposit in Cecil County and would like to know what type of grass I have on my lawn. I also noticed that I now have large brown patches on my lawn. How should I take care of this lawn, Thank you:)

Your grass looks like tall fescue, the best type for most Maryland lawns.

Reseed the dead patches in late August-early fall. Here's how to do it: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/lawn-renovation-and-overseeding

You might want to get the soil test done now, so if lime is required, you can apply that immediately and let it get started. Soil testing: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/soil-testing
