Dear K - Selecting the right grass for your home is foundational. The choices for most Texas homeowners are limited to St Augustine, Bermuda, Buffalo, Centipede, Tall Fescue, and Zoysiagrasses. Each species has both positive and negative traits. For example, Bermudagrass can provide a beautiful, dense, fine textured lawn with proper care, but it has very low shade tolerance, so it is a poor choice for landscapes with shady areas. Each turfgrass species also has many varieties to choose from. In a recent national turfgrass tall fescue variety evaluation trial, there were more than 125 different varieties entered. For most warm season grasses there are typically less than 10 varieties available to homeowners. The Astro-Bermuda Grass seems to be a good selection for North Texas.
