Types of GrassSeeding a lawn with grass seed can result in a beautiful "satisfying" experience if you follow the right instructions for your type of grass seed.

But first you must decide: "Which grass for my lawn?" That is a decision that not easy to decide considering the wide range and availability of lawn seeds and grasses in today's marketplace.

PLANTING METHODS? How to plant grass seeds?
SEASON TO PLANT? When can I plant seeds?

Here at Seedland.com we have developed a series of informational websites that help walk you through the proper steps to choosing a quality "long lived" beautiful green turf quality lawn. One that will be the envy of your neighbors. However like any major construction project (and you are constructing a lawn!) --- You must establish and follow basic guidelines and rules that turf grass agronomists have developed over the years.

You can also improve the chances of selecting the best lawn and one day having a successful lawn by consulting with lawn care experts and homeowners in your local area. They know what works best, and doesn't work for your particular area. Try your Agricultural Extension Agent or reach out to your state university's Ag Extension division.

Facts to Consider When Choosing A Lawn Grass

If you're now ready to begin... The first step is to choose the best lawn grass for your particular need, situation, soil type and location:

The correct lawn grass for your location depends on several factors. You should select the best one by exploring the list of choices and narrowing your list until the best and most practical choice is left. To help you through this narrowing process, we have developed our web site www.lawngrasses.com - Which will assist you in your lawn selection. As you read through the material at www.lawngrasses.com , be sure and consider each factor below in your determination:

The first Choice factor is determining if you need a Cool Season or Warm Season grass, or even possibly that you need a grass suitable for the Transition zone area -- which many times may result in using a combination mixture of both warm and cool season grasses in your lawn. (See maps below). Once you know this question, the next step should be to consider the various aspects of a lawn:

  1. Do you want a high-maintenance lawn? Or a low-maintenance lawn? Or just average? Keep in mind that higher maintenance means both time and money. But it also results in a more beautiful "turf quality" lawn. Does the cost matter to you?
  2. What kind of area are you wanting to plant? Is it wet or dry?, shady?, sandy or clay?, a sloped or level site? Review the page on site-plan as this will be one of the decisions made with your plan.
  3. What will the use be of this lawn? For looks? For play? For sports? For erosion control? Or just to have something green growing?
  4. Will it have heavy traffic or light traffic? Traffic is foot traffic such as kids walking and running on the grass... or perhaps a pet -  Different grasses handle these aspects differently.

Prioritize the importance of each one of these aspects, So that you can then select and rank the different grasses in relation to your lawn needs.

Grass Planting Zones Of USA Map

The three major areas of the USA that use various different types of grasses for lawns and pastures.
  • Warm Season Areas
  • Cool Season Areas
  • Transition Areas

Detailed USA Climate Zone Map

Here we will show you a more detailed map of the climate type zones of the USA. This map divides the areas of the USA into 5 divisions based on the type of climate in each division. This helps eliminate confusion as some grass species are listed to grow in one area when in fact the grass in question may also grow in other areas of the USA. For instance some of the fescue varieties will grow on the NE coast as well as NW coast of the USA.
