Whether you just moved to your new home, or you’ve been living there for years, it can be a real challenge to choose the right type of grass for your lawn. Some of the challenges include the pH and composition of the soil, the yearly temperatures and humidity values being problematic for growing conventional grasses and the products that have to be used for certain, fragile types of grasses, being simply too expensive.
All of these factors have to be taken into account when you’re planning to select a new type of grass for your home turf. Depending on whether you live in the north or the south, you have to account for the weather getting colder in the winter. Bentgrass, Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue should be used in such climates, as these varieties are somewhat more robust and they won’t be severely affected by the weather.
In warmer areas, you will be better off opting for Zoysia grass or Bermuda grass. Buffalo and centipede grasses are also good, although they are slightly less popular.
If you plan to use grasses that are less compatible with the area you live in, consider also using organic lawn care products and organic fertilizer from Revive that will release slowly into the soil and ensure that your grasses receive the ideal amount of revitalizing nutrients.
