When you’re prepared to invest in your home lawn, it is important to choose the best variety for your needs. Turfgrass is not one size fits all, but the great news is that there is are many great varieties and cultivars, and there is certainly one for every home lawn.
When making a selection, here are some of the factors to consider:

  • The USDA has designated hardiness zones to help identify which plants grow best in which regions. Always choose a variety that is indicated for your region.
  • Annual rainfall averages for your area can also help narrow down your choice as some turfgrasses are more drought tolerant than others.


  • Consider how much time, effort and money you’re willing to invest in maintaining your lawn’s appearance and health. Some varieties are lower maintenance than others.
  • Maintenance might include mowing, fertilization, aeration, weed control, pest/insect control and disease prevention and treatment.


  • How will your lawn be used? Will it need to stand up to a lot of foot traffic? Some grasses are more wear-resistant and can recover more quickly than others.


  • Color, leaf width and density are the main elements of turfgrass appearance.
