Recommended Seed for Growing a Healthy Lawn in Anchorage
Kentucky Bluegrass and Fine Fescues (Red Fescue) are the best seed choices for developing a lawn in Anchorage because of their winter hardiness. Both lawn seeds also have excellent resistance to snow mold, which is common in Alaska.
Perennial Ryegrass is another type of grass that grows well in Alaska. It works well in erosion-prone areas as a nurse grass until the selected variety sets up. The best time to start planting is the beginning of July to the first of August.
