If you are deciding on a new lawn altogether, start by choosing either a cool season or warm season lawn.
Cool Season – these lawns look their best during the fall, winter and spring. They have a soft texture that is just perfect for bare feet. They can be grown in both sun and shade. Cool season is a blend of Fescue grasses that are well suited to this area.
Benefits of Cool Season:
• Great for erosion control
• Tolerates shade
• Green during the winter
Warm Season – these lawns look their best in the heat of the summer. They are heat tolerant and water saving. Comprised of Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede and St. Augustine grasses, warm season lawns are perfect for the heat and humidity of Hampton Roads.
Benefits of Warm Season:
• Heat tolerant
• Water saving
• Best in full sun
• Less trouble with weeds
• Dense growing, perfect for play
