3 Common Grasses that Grow Well in the Reno Area

Before you start worrying about tips concerning lawn care in Reno, you need to make sure that you start with a type of grass that will thrive in Reno. Nevada is known for sunshine, low amounts of precipitation, dry air, and extreme temperature changes between night and day. You need a type of grass that can handle it. Here are 3 types for you to consider:

Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass is a warm-season grass. It is finely textured, and it requires 40% less water than other types of grasses. It’s also highly tolerant to drought conditions and high temperatures. Some of the kinds of Bermuda grass that you can consider include Laprima or Princess 77.

Fescue Grass

For Reno, turf-style Fescue grass can be an excellent option. It grows fast in the spring and fall, so you can plant it and have a luscious yard in time for summer. It will thrive in shady areas where it receives low to moderate water. Similar to Bermuda grass, it also has high tolerance to drought conditions and extreme heat.

Perennial Ryegrass

Perennial Rygrass is a cool-season grass, but it works well in Reno. It tends to grow fast, and it has a beautiful, bright green color. Perennial Ryegrass prefers full sun and has moderate-to-high water requirements. Fortunately, it is also highly tolerant to drought conditions and extremes in temperature. It is also resistant to wear and tear, so you don’t have to worry about the effect that you and/or your children will have on it while playing on your lawn.
