What is a cool season grass?

Cool season turf grass is a term applied to grass that grows well in the middle to northern half of the United States. Cool season grasses usually have two growing seasons; spring and fall. Some species go through a winter dormancy lasting between one and four months depending on location and severity of the winter. This turf tolerates cold weather very well.
