The first plant is Course Fescue (like K-31 bunchgrass) a plant that is present through the entire growing season that grows much faster during the summer season or during the peak watering season. It looks like wide bladed kentucky bluegrass which is the grass variety that predominantly makes up northern lawns.
The second plant named regionally as water grass is crabgrass. It got it's name because it becomes mature and noticable when the heat of the summer gets here during August and water demands are at their highest levels.

Green Turf only uses dry, granular fertilizers that meter out the nutrients to your turf, promoting a deep vigorous root system that requires less watering during the hot months.
