STEP 1 | STEP 2 | STEP 3 | STEP 4

There are three additional decisions to be made about the type of grass you choose to plant here in Step 2. First, how much money, time, and labor do you want to put into maintaining your grass? The amount of effort, time and money that are put into a grass project are known as 'inputs' or 'maintenance requirements'.

Input requirements determine the amount of maintenance (time & labor) and money required to maintain your lawn grass choice at optimum levels. This will be a long term decision as your lawn, turf or pasture grass may well outlive you! Answering this question helps to determine which grass you should plant.

Secondly, what expectations and uses will you have for your lawn or turf.

Thirdly, and perhaps most important, what are the traits of the planting environment or lawn site?

Now let us walk through these three additional selection decisions regarding the actual grass you will use for your lawn area.

Your Lawn Type Preference - Decision #1

What kind of lawn do you need and what traits do you want from your lawn area? You need to decide if your lawn or turf grass will be an "exhibit" lawn, an "average" lawn or perhaps you just want "anything green" that covers the ground? Keep in mind that the more 'perfect' the lawn the higher the rate of maintenance and inputs required. Write down your choices here.

In addition to the above selection, write down the activity, trait or purpose your lawn will be used for. Select one of these lawn grass purposes, traits or needs :

  • Wear & traffic tolerance
  • Sports
  • General Lawn
  • Lawn cover on wet soil
  • Lawn cover on dry soil

Lawn Grass Preferences - Decision # 2

How much maintenance are you willing to dedicate to your lawn? Every grass responds to more intense maintenance with a better overall look. However all that requires inputs of both money and time. Do you want a lawn that requires little in the way of maintenance or lots of maintenance? Choose and write down your preference:

  • High Maintenance
  • Low Maintenance
  • Medium Maintenance.

Lawn Grass Preferences - Decision #3

On your particular lawn or turf grass site, are there factors that would limit the choice of grass to be planted? These factors can be anything from the soil type and pH of the soil on your site, shaded lawn areas, to even the slope of the particular lawn area.

View these various charts to make sure that the grass types you have selected in Step #1 are suitable for any particular aspect or problem area of your lawn such as these below:

Write down any specific problem areas you may have in your lawn area and check off the best types of grass for these areas that you recorded in your Step #1 Climate Zone results.
