Create Buffalo Grass Plugs

I'm in Cheyenne, and my south-side lawn gets full sun all summer, and the current grass is ill-equipped to survive. I'm thinking about putting in buffalo grass. The ease of using plugs appeals to me, but it's pricey. Seed is cheaper, but it would require me to till my existing space. My question is this: can I buy seed and some trays and create my own plugs? If so, do you have any advice on doing this? How long before the plugs may be planted? I assume I'd need to plant about an inch down, and it would be best to keep the trays outside to avoid shock when they are planted. I appreciate any guidance you can offer.

Best water to COOK with?

I use well water (east of Cheyenne) to cook with. My "Joy of Cooking" says soft water is best for most cooking processes, although very soft water will make yeast doughs soggy and sticky. Hard water & some soft waters affect flavor..may toughen legumes and fruits and shrivel pickles..they alter the color of some veggies and turn white veggies yellow...and on it goes. What's a cook to do? I am having trouble making yeast breads. What water would you suggest I purchase to help improve my breads??

soil condition

My backyard is bordered by 2 large spruce trees and the prevailing winds blow dead needles down into my backyard "lawn". The "lawn" is an area not under the trees. The needles apparently have altered the chemistry of the soil and I am having a bad time trying to grow grass. I would appreciate any info you might be able to provide
