Pick the Right Grass Variety

We talk a lot about selecting the right plant, for the right spot, and for your climate.  A recent article in the Star Tribune talks about what grasses work best in the Twin Cities:  Fescue versus Kentucky Bluegrass and Perennial Rye. Although the latter grows lush and quickly, it can be a water hog.   

Wherever you live, find out what grass grows best in your climate and most importantly, which variety requires less water and fertilizer to be successful.   Low maintenance grasses are available.  Find the one that works well in your area!
