4 Steps To Choosing A Type of Lawn, Pasture of Turf Grass
Step 1 - Where Will Your Grass Be Planted
The area that your grass will planted and live is your first decision. This step in the process will help you determine whether you need a warm
season, cool season grass or perhaps a grass seed mixture of both. You will determine this by examining the transition zone map in conjunction
with the other maps we have provided. This allows you to find your state or
location so that you can better determine what grasses will
survive and grow best.
This critical information applies to
lawn, turf and pasture uses for grass types. It does you no good to buy
and plant a warm season grass only to find that the hard freeze that
is normal for your winter will kill the grass. Same goes for
cool season grasses when the summer temps shrivel your grass to
nothing. Finding the right grass seed or grass seed mixture is
an important step in planting and obtaining a great lawn.
GO TO STEP 1- Determine if you need warm season, cool season or a grass seed mixture.
Step 2 - Determine The Amount of Money, Time, Effort
& The Type of Lawn Usage You Desire
Step 2 will provide assistance with helping you answer the following questions.
How much effort, time, and money do you
want to spend on your lawn?... Not just in the beginning, but
for the rest of your lawn or turf grass's life -- which can be a lifetime. Secondly, what uses you will have for your lawn?
GO TO STEP 2 - Determining the type of grass based on input preferences and usage.
Step 3 - Determine The Type Of Grass Based on Appearance
You should also consider the
differences in the way various grass types grow. The way grass grows has a direct correlation to the amount of wear tolerance as well as how fast the grass will 'repair' after injury or
damage. Some grass types grow in bunches and some grass grows by 'creeping'. The 'look' or appearance of the grass type is important as well the intended usage.
GO TO STEP 3 - Choosing a type of grass that meets your criteria for maintenance and appearance.
Step 4 - Selecting
a Grass Type
Now that you have determined the type of grass you need it is time to make a decision about which grass you desire. Once you have determined the best lawn grass for your requirements, visit our individual lawn grass web
