Choosing The Right Lawn Grasses Can Be a Tough Decision | Raleigh Lawn Care & Raleigh Landscaping Service

Choosing the right lawn grasses can be a tough decision in the greater Raleigh area. Why? The Triangle is unique in the fact that we have almost all varieties of turfgrasses available, but all of them are difficult to grow and maintain properly. Many home owners associations now have restrictions on the types of grasses that homeowners can seed or sod. Uniformity with your neighbors can also create a difficult situation. However, our main concern is to choose wisely based on the individual’s property needs and uses. In dense shade, cool season fescues need to be used but also need proper irrigation. Warm season Zoysia or Bermuda grasses are an excellent choice for less irrigated areas or where full sun is always available. When establishing a new lawn, laying sod is the fastest way to achieve best results, but if you have time and need a more cost effective solution, seeding can be achieved quickly with several turfgrass options.
