    Starting a new customer tomorrow who has Thermal Blue sod.

    This is Georgia mind you, so I have never dealt with Bluegrass before. Being exposed to this new turf is a good thing, but I really have no idea how it should be managed. Tall Fescue is very common here, so my assumption was to use that same program. Generally we fertilize with N in the Spring, Fall, and Winter but only apply iron/potassium during the Summer months. Cool season grasses are very fragile during our Summer heat.

    You folks up North know everything about Bluegrass, so any advice would be helpful.

    Texas A&M has mentioned it and is doing testing here too.

    I'm reminded of the old Life cereal commercial:

    "I'M not gonna try it! YOU try it!
    Hey let's get Mikey! He hates everything!"

    Scotts has some info about it on their website.

    What advantages does it offer?
