Making the decision to remove the lawn | Master Gardener | Lifestyles


So you want to get rid of your lawn to save water and resources. Here’s the conundrum though… It will take effort, money and resources to remove a lawn and replace it with new plants. If a landscaping business is too much on a budget, consider the following methods and resources.

Determine what type of grass you have: cool season or warm season. Cool-season grasses, such as tall fescue, are green year-round and tend to require more water. Warm season grasses, such as Bermuda grass hybrids, do best with less water in warm months and become dormant/brownish in winter months. Certain removal methods work best for each type of grass, so knowing before you start will help you save time and choose the best methods.
