Here you will find a compilation of the five best grasses to grow according to the region you live in. Consult the Grass Zone Map to determine your location before you continue reading.
Plant it in: September (which is this month!)
Besides being a great genre of music, Bluegrass is favorable for almost all zones due to its lack of sensitivity to cold and drought. It is popular for both sodding and seeding and it easy to maintain once established.
Plant it in: September (Yayy! Another for this month!)
Tall Fescue grass is a more vibrant green alternative to Kentucky Bluegrass. This plant thrives in many climates due to its deep roots that make it impervious to drought and treading damage.
Plant it in: March, April
This grass is quick growing and non-spreading. It is popular among the environmentally-minded for its ability to prevent soil erosion. Because it is non-spreading, it also makes a great fill-in grass for permanent lawns of slower growing species.
Plant it in: April, May
Buffalo grass is an attractive option for dryer zones because it requires very little water to thrive, as evident by its inhabitence of extremely dry climates like Mexico. These species does best in heavier soil. If you do live in a dry area be sure to check out our article on Fire Resistant Landscaping.
Plant it in: April
Bermudagrass is a popular choice for sports fields and golf courses. This grass has a quick recovery time and will stay green all year round. It is also popular as a pasture grass.
After you've selected the best grass for your lawn, pasture, golf course, etc., you will need to determine the square footage of the area to be cultivated. This will allow you to price out the costs of your sod or seed. You will also need to factor in equipment costs. Mini Skid Steers are especially helpful when laying sod, while aerator seeders make short work of seeding grass. September is the best time for planting Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue, so check your local Compact Power Equipment Rental for equipment rates and availability!
