Pasture Crop - Camp Sherman

Asked July 8, 2016, 10:54 PM EDT

Folks, I live in Camp Sherman and have a small 1.5 acre pasture area that I am about to level, till, and want to replant with a good cover "crop" that is low maintenance, attractive, and good for the soil. I currently do not have irrigation but may be getting that too. We are in a micro climate over here. Do you have any suggestions for my area?

If it is low maintenance, aesthetically pleasing, and low growth, bunch grass type grass you want, you might plant Sheep fescue. Or a mix of native plants (grasss, forbs, legumes) depending upon if you irrigate or not. We can talk more about options.
