What kind of grass should I plant?

Low maintenance

All grasses need some amount of watering, mowing and fertilization to resist pests and disease. How much of these inputs you decide on will affect the appearance and value of your lawn. Centipede, a popular warm season grass in the south, is often called the "Lazy Man's Grass" because of its low mowing requirements and its tolerance for low fertility. Dwarf-type Fescues and Fescue/Rye mixes provide similar mowing relief for cool season lawns.
