Yard Grass?

I'm interested in hearing some thoughts as to the best durable grass to seed a yard with. Am out in the country and want to do this right the first time.

Go to the local ag extension and ask around.

Then go to the premier garden stores around town and ask.

Some grasses are made for the local area and some are made for the general zone you live in.

Here the general zone grasses go for 15$ a bag while the specific grasses go for $25.

The specific grasses do much much better than the general ones.

Now there are two types of grasses

Warm weather - they turn brown at first frost - they creep - make a thick mat - zoysia bermuda are two of them - generally grow from plugs

Cool weather - fescue bluegrass - only grow where you plant them - turn brown in dead of summer - need more water - not very tough

Later

It depends on where you are located. Winter and summer temperatures, rainfall, soil type, etc. all have some bearing on the best grass type.

Here are some of the turf grass links I have.
