Joan Stanley on Jun 13, 2018Depends on if you have shade and if your soil was farmland before. Bermuda for the sunny areas. But, the seeds must be kept in very damp soil till its at least 2 inches tall. After it's established, It will turn brown in the dry heat unless its kept wet. But, it will turn green again when the weather cools.Look at commercial properties to see what they have.I'd ask at a LOCAL nursery (not big-box store) to see if there are better choises.Helpful Reply
