What is the best sort of lawn to put in here in Colorado?
It is a simple question that, unfortunately, has no easy answer. The type of lawn that will do best depends on exposure, elevation, slope and soils. All things being equal, however, we generally recommend a Bluegrass blend, developed for the Colorado climate. This means that it requires less water once it has rooted, can withstand dry periods, early frosts and our traditional, late spring snow falls without damage. Other grasses we install with great success include a fescue blend and buffalo grass. The choice really comes down to personal preference.
