To many, it may come as a surprise back here in Arizona, we need to use two separate types of grass in the two seasons we have. Find out why here:
Why Does Arizona Need 2 Kinds?
With Arizona’s extremely warm temperatures, it becomes no surprise that many plants can’t take the heat. This includes grass. Since the desert climate in Phoenix mean extremely different seasons, we have to are used to separate types of grass if you want to keep our yard plush and green year-round.
Bermuda Grass & Winter Rye
In the summer, to withstand our triple digit temperatures, Bermuda grass is planted. However, since Bermuda grass lies dormant during our winter months, winter rye grass replaces it. Winter rye is planted typically in October, and in May when our temperatures between to spike, the rye will start to die and allow for the Bermuda to awaken again.
Caring for this grass can be a complicated process & requires attention to the amount of water being provided. Ensuring that you have a landscaper with knowledge of when to replant & how much to water is your best bet to keep a green lawn year round.
