Choose a Grass Type for your Lawn

Different grasses behave differently in varying climates and soil types.

  • Some are more drought or frost tolerant.
  • Others handle shade better.
  • Or more acidic soils.

What this means to the consumer is that there is no one perfect grass type for every lawn, and if you want to ensure a healthy, thriving lawn, you need to start with the best turf for your conditions and needs.

Finding the best lawn for your situation can mean making trade-offs.

  • Take into consideration the look and feel of the lawn you want.
  • What characteristics are important to you…
  • and what the lawn might be used for.

We can then help you find out what grass types are appropriate for your climate and growing conditions.
