Which Grass Types are Best for You?

Selecting the grass types best suited to your location, when considering factors like soil type and consistency, climate, wear and tear (which is not just the amount of traffic but also the type of the traffic across your lawn) and the amount of sun that your grass will receive, will make the difference between having a successful lawn that you can be proud of, or just a grassed area that you mow.

For these as well as many other reasons, it is always our first suggestion that we provide obligation free assistance in this process, by having one of our Grass Project Consultants with many years of experience in the field, to come to your property, allow you to walk them through what you have in mind, and then provide you with the solution that considers the many variables specific to your location, so that you get the grass and lawn that you want the first time.
