STATE GUIDE | TURF HELP | GRASS CHOICES | CLIMATE ZONE | HOME

Grasses in Texas for lawns are dependent on largely where in this large state they will be planted.  You can divide Texas into basically four climatic regions. these include the north-central plains, the south-east coastal plains, The great plains lying north and north west in Texas and the Trans-Pecos Mountain area west of the Pecos Valley.  Growing season ranges from 185 days in Northern cooler areas to over 300 days in the Southeast.  Rainfall is also a factor in lawns with a wide range from over 50+ inches in the East to less than 10 in the western areas.    Soils also vary greatly and lime is usually required in the Southeastern part of the state.

TEXAS LAWN SPECIES PLANTED:
Bermuda and St. Augustine grasses are found extensively throughout the state.  St. Augustine is limited more to warmer areas due to not surviving winter temperatures as cold as Bermuda with its Northern area of adaptation stopping around the Fort Worth area.  It is found extensively in Gulf coast areas.  It is also the best warm season grass for shade problem areas.  Zoysiagrass is also planted in Texas.  Buffalo Grass is found in the dryer areas where rainfall is limited to less than 20 inches annually.  Centipede is adapted for use in central and South Eastern areas of Texas especially on sandy, well drained soils. Tall Fescues are used extensively in the Dallas / Fort Worth area and Northern Texas, but generally will require irrigation to survive heat / drought. 

LESSER USED VARIETIES:
Bentgrass is used on golf courses for greens in some Northern & NE areas - It should NOT be used for a home lawn.  Bluegrass is limited in use to mainly panhandle areas of Texas. Ryegrasses are used in Texas for fast cover and for a overseeding dormant warm season grasses to have a green playing surface in the fall / winter months. Bahiagrass is used occasionally in the SE for lawn and pasture areas where drought tolerance is important.  For more on Texas lawns read the Extension sites below.
