native grass for small acreage
We have a 4 1/2” property in Hudson, Co. I need advice on native grass seed, drought tolerant, low maintenance that I can use for a couple small areas areas where my grandkids play. Also would like to use a native grass seed for some areas that are just dirt, to cut down on dust and mud and prevent erosion problems. Any advice would help!

Thank you for your question about growing native sod type grass. I am sending you a link to a very helpful article. Please be sure to read the part at the beginning about the difference between bunching grass and sod-forming grass. I understand from your description that you will want sod-forming. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/mg/Gardennotes/581.pdf As with any plants that we Colorado gardeners grow, these grasses too may need extra pampering until they are established. I’m also including a link to some possible places where you may be able to find these seeds. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/mg/Gardennotes/583.pdf Gina
