Executive summary: Having a lush lawn in Middle Tennessee is a challenge, but it can be done;Tennessee lies directly in what is known as the transition zone…lush lawn in Tennessee

We all see it, we all want it, and for some reason our next-door neighbor always seems to have the best one. I am not talking about the newest sports car, but instead, the nicest lawn. Your neighbor’s lawn stares at you with a look of pity.  No matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get that lush lawn the Homeowners Association raves about.  So what is your neighbor doing that you’re not?  Well, it may be more about what your neighbor knows and less about what they dotransition zone. The transition zone is an area running from Virginia all the way to the Rockies.  It is generally too cold in the winter for the warm season grasses such as St. Augustine, and too warm in the summer for the cool season grasses such as Kentucky Bluegrass. Hence, maintaining a healthy lawn in Middle Tennessee is definitely a challenge, but with a lot of hard work and patience, it can be done! 

Knowing Tennessee’s climate zone will definitely help you in your efforts to make your lawn looking the best in the neighborhood.  It also may be more beneficial to approach the professionals, like Brentwood Landscapes.  They know what type of grass is most viable, when and how to take care of it, and most importantly, they know what NOT to do.  Let’s be honest, spray-painting your front yard green isn’t the best option!
