Emerald III Turf-type Tall Fescue grass seed is the ideal grass type for almost all of Colorado's conditions. Boulder and Fort Collins area lawns thrive when seeded with Emerald III grass seeds. Turf-type tall fescue does extremely well in areas of full sun or full shade. Emerald III will tolerate the high pH soils of Boulder and Fort Collins. Emerald III grass also has very strong rhizomes and will bounce back from heavy foot traffic or heavy use. After the grass seed establishes, the turf will perform well in both hot-dry conditions or cool-moist conditions.
Organo-Lawn believes that this grass seed blend is the best seed type for Colorado's wild weather and hot and dry summers. Emerald III fescue seed can also tolerate heavy shade areas like underneath deciduous trees. It’s also highly recommended for anyone starting a new lawn, because it will require 33% less watering than bluegrass lawns.

Supreme Lawn grass seed mix is a blend of selected fine-textured lawn grass seeds that form a dense, uniform sod with outstanding deep dark green color, excellent durability, good heat and drought tolerance, strong winter hardiness, and nice lawn disease resistance. Supreme Lawn Mix incorporates the features of the Allblue bluegrass blend, then adds Creeping Red Fescue which tolerates the poor soil conditions found in Boulder and Fort Collins area lawns.
Supreme lawn grass seed is an extremely high-quality Kentucky blue-grass seed type that is ideal for Colorado lawns and used by grass seeding companies for lawns with adequate sun. It is a fine bladed grass, with deep dark green color, excellent tolerance to foot traffic, fair heat and drought tolerance, good winter hardiness and is disease and fungus resistant.
Bluegrass’ major drawback is its poor ability to establish in heavily shaded areas. Bluegrass needs about 70% sunlight throughout the day to stay healthy in a Boulder or Fort Collins area lawn. If a homeowner has tried numerous times to seed an area of the lawn with little success, chances are there isn’t enough sunlight for the bluegrass sod or grass to sustain in that area. For shady areas, Emerald III grass seed would be the best option for an area that does not receive as much sunlight.
Bluegrass is the most common grass type in Colorado lawns. This is due to the fact that bluegrass is easy to sod and is virtually drought proof. Even though bluegrass requires more water to stay green, if a bluegrass lawn receives zero water, the bluegrass lawns will go dormant. When water becomes available again (even if it is one year later) a bluegrass lawn will come out of dormancy. Bluegrass is virtually drought proof.

April 7th - May 20thAugust 10th - September 1st
Spring: April 7th - May 31st*
Fall: August 10th – September 22nd*
*We guarantee the germination of the grass seeds if the top seeding package is performed between these dates and the lawn is being watered according to our instructions. Fall top seeding packages are guaranteed except for weather events like frost or major snow storms that kill the newly germinating grasses.
In Colorado the highest germination percentage occurs between August 10th- September 1st. This is because the soil temperatures are ideal for seed germination and the nighttime temperatures are gradually getting cooler. If you would like to seed in spring, April 7 – May 31 is the best time to seed a lawn in the spring.
This depends on what type of weed killer was used. It is best to read the label of the weed killer that was applied before seeding a lawn.
No, bluegrass needs about 70% sunlight throughout the day to stay healthy. If you have tried multiple times to seed a lawn under a tree with little success it may be that there isn’t enough sunlight for the bluegrass to sustain in that area.
