Grass Type:
In our area, there are three types of grass you will find in lawns. Cool-Season Turfgrass varieties such as Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, and Fescues will be the primary grasses you will find in lawns, even used together in a lot of instances. These grasses go dormant in the summer and also will lose most of their color in the winter. They may grow more upright than some varieties people in the south are used to, and also won’t spread as aggressively as some southern varieties.

Soil:
Soil structure has so much to do with your lawn. Loam soils will grow some of the nicest lawns since they can hold moisture for a moderate amount of time but are able to drain as well. Loam soils will also not become as compacted and will help grass to root more deeply and allow pores in the soil for needed oxygen. Some lawns may have more clay in the soil and be subjected to soil compaction and poor drainage, making growing a nice lawn more of a challenge and requiring frequent core aeration and even topdressing.

Areas near coastlines may contain more sand in the soil which allows soil to drain well but also allows it to dry out too quickly and may increase the need for watering. Depending upon your species of turfgrass and soil type, your requirements for soil pH, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium will also vary. Some municipalities also will restrict some of these elements if areas are near bodies of water.
The University of Connecticut is a good resource we use.

Weeds:
There are two main types of weeds you’ll encounter in your northeast lawn. Broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, white clover, plantain, and violets, etc. will be regular targets for broadleaf weed control treatments throughout the year. Grassy weeds such as crabgrass and nutsedge can be treated with a number of weed control materials and need to be addressed regularly as well. Other types of grassy weeds are unable to be controlled selectively and a thick lawn may or may not help to reduce them. An experienced lawn care expert can give you the proper expectations on each of species of weeds in your lawn.
