Choosing the Best Grass Type for Your Lawn

The type of grass you choose for your yard can greatly influence the value of your home. Choosing the right type of grass ensures that your lawn will stay healthy, even if you live in the same home for decades. At Miller Lawn and Pest Control, we want you to be as happy with your yard as you are with your home, so we’ve provided a guide to choosing the best grass type.

Consider Use

When choosing your grass, consider how much traffic it will get. If your active family likes to be outdoors, your grass will probably wear down faster than the grass of a quiet retired couple. If you have several pets, you’ll need a durable grass that can withstand walks, digging, chewing, and yes, waste deposits. Ask Miller Lawn and Pest Control which grasses are best for heavy traffic.

Watch the Weather

The climate where you live will tell you much about the type of grass you need. All grass should be resistant to drought and heavy rain, but certain types are better suited to dry or wet climates. If you live in a cold climate, you’ll need a grass that holds up well despite heavy snow or ice.

These are only two of the major factors influencing the best grass for you. Ask a professional at Miller Lawn and Pest Control about other factors to consider before investing in grass.
