Choosing the Right Mix
Your climate is a big factor in what grasses you choose.
Grasses are generally
described as cool-season for the northern part of the country and warm
season for southern areas. Cool-season grasses grow best in spring and fall;
warm-season types grow fastest in summer and are not as winter-hardy.
Mixtures of several grass types work best for most lawns. That way, even if
disease strikes, the damage probably will be limited to just one of the grasses
in the mixture. By mixing a spring performer with a drought- tolerant summer
grower, you'll help your lawn look good all year.
