Types of Grass to Plant on Your Lawn

If your lawn isn’t looking its best, you can’t wait any longer to revive it.

If your lawn isn’t looking its best, you can’t wait any longer to revive it. Let’s say that it’s been dried out by drought, or insufficient shade. Both of these situations are quite common. Then again, you could have rude neighbors and rowdy kids sharing your block that carelessly ride their bikes over your lawn, leaving nothing but mud and turf behind. Here are some of the different types of grass you can plant and help your lawn regenerate.

St. Augustine Grass

This grass is coarse and works well in coastal regions that tend to be moist. It works in a wide variety of soils, which is always good news. All you need to do is give some shade. Another reason to think about planting this grass is that it doesn’t need to be mowed all that often, which can be an advantage if you are not in the market for high-maintenance grass. The lawn that it helps create is low-profile and not a scene-stealer by any means, but chances are, you don’t need it to be. Plus, with all of the scorching heat in Maryland, you can be sure that this grass will survive. Just be careful if drought conditions start setting in, though.  

Buffalo Grass

Buffalo grass handles high heat and drought conditions quite well. It’s also a warm-season grass that doesn’t require a high amount of maintenance. This means that you won’t need to worry about irrigation and fertilization needs throughout the year. You also won’t have to mow it all that often. Don’t give it too much shade or subject it to too much foot traffic, or else it will wither.


This is another warm-season grass that is well worth a second look. It’s drought tolerant, but you will need to keep it watered and give it plenty of sunlight. It is slow to regrow, so if you come across any damaged spots, then it’s time to give it another layer of sod. But if you live in a neighborhood full of rambunctious kids and pets, then this is the perfect fit for your lawn.

Tall Fescue

Tall fescue is incredibly versatile and a good fit for places that both get incredibly hot and incredibly cold as the seasons change. It performs better under plenty of shade, so if you can do that, you’ll be pleased with your new lawn!
