Establish Your Turf Against the Heat

In the heat of the summer, you may start to realize that your grass is looking a little wilty, and if you don't want to spend the time watering, it may help to find a drought tolerant grass! It's best to plant your grass in the spring and summer, but we just thought we'd plant a little seed if you will for when the perfect planting time comes. If you want to see a change in the overall look of your landscape, the first thing is to call the best landscape company at the Lake of the Ozarks, the second is to think about reseeding your lawn. Here are a few kinds of grass that are low-maintenance, but also great for weathering the summer.

Zoysia Grass

This grass grows beautifully and has a fine to medium textured leaf with a thick cushiony feel of lush carpet. Don't let the beauty of it fool you, though, it's a touch grass and actually required less mowing, watering and very few chemicals to survive. It's an eco-friendly choice, and instead of growing tall it tends to spread out wide creating a dense sod. It's a resilient and persistent grass that can be successfully grown in a variety of climates and conditions.

Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass can be a wonderful choice because it is drought resistant, grows on many soils and makes a great turf if it's fertilized and taken care of properly. The only downside is that it does produce seed heads which can be unsightly, but that doesn't stop people from using this type of grass on their lawn. It can commonly be found in sports fields, parks, golf courses, and general utility turfs, and can grow in a variety of climates.

Buffalo Grass

This grass is actually native to North America, and it's tolerance to prolonged droughts and extreme temperatures make it a great choice. It spreads by surface runners, or stolons, and seed. It forms a fine textured, relatively thin turf with a soft blue-green color.


While this is a cool season grass, it is shade tolerant and will perform well in areas where the season is too hot for other cool grasses. You'll also find that fescue can be blended with other grass types. If you live in an area where the transition between spring, summer, fall, and winter can be a bit dramatic, this is a great option for you.
