Lawn GrassLawngrasses.com is a guide to help you determine the best type of grass or grass alternative to plant for your location, desired appearance, uses and maintenance requirements.

By learning some basic knowledge, along with investigating what types of grass or alternative grass grows successfully in your area, you can select the correct type of grass and plant it by either seeding, sodding, sprigging or plugging your new lawn, pasture or sports grass turf. It is easy to choose the correct type of grass using our Easy 4 step selection system.

At this point you need to decide if you wish to plant a traditional lawn grass or plant a eco-friendly lawn grass alternative. Then proceed on to Step 1 of the 4 Steps To Choosing A Lawn Grass. If you are planting a lawn grass alternative, then this four step system will also help you determine which type will grow in your location. Grab some paper and a pen and let's get started!

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 sites, listed here in our menu, to learn more specific information about a particular type of grass.

GO TO STEP 4 - Select your type of grass. Choose your lawn or turf grass!
