Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the features of Festuca, Lolium and Poa turf genera and their species commonly used in landscape areas. All of these varieties are defined as cool climate turf grasses. Festuca genus includes one-year and multi-year species and especially the multi-year species are more suitable for landscape areas. Lolium contains the most used species for green turf areas. Poa is not only adapted to cool and rainy climates but also transition climates.
