Crested Wheatgrass – Drought Tolerant Turf


Certain types of Crested Wheatgrass lend themselves to low maintenance, low water input lawns.  When you have limited water inputs in general it means that the grass grows slowly so it requires less frequent mowings.  Crested Wheatgrass is a bunch grass with a slightly lighter green color as compared to irrigated lawn grasses.  Because it is a bunch grass it does have an uneven surface and would not make a good croquet surface! (Technically this is not a mix but it is classified with the other lawn mixes.)
