Hello

Thank you for your question regarding best type of grass to plant here in the Bandon area. There are a variety of factors to consider including shade vs sunny areas as well as drainage, usage, etc... https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/ec1521 is the link to the publication Practical Lawn Care for Western Oregon and has great information for selection lawn or eco-lawns as well as tips for establishing and maintaining the lawn once it is established.

Just as a side note, Gorse is extremely hard to eradicate all in one swoop, so you may find it trying to pop up in your lawn still even after the lawn is established.

If you have any other questions, you can also reach out to the Master Gardener's at their plant clinic on Mondays and Thursdays 9am-Noon at 541-572-5263 ext 25295
