You should know that some types of grass are able to do better in the sun than others. Keep reading this week's blog to learn about a few GREAT types of grass for the summer.

Brighten Your Lawn With Fescues!
This is a cool-season grass, but 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.
Give Your Lawn Life with 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.

Zoysia Grass Can Look BEAUTIFUL in Your Yard!
This grass grows beautifully and has a fine to medium textured leaf with a thick cushiony feel of the plush 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 dense sod. It's a resilient and persistent grass that can be successfully grown in a variety of climates and conditions.

Withstand the Heat with 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.
