Drought Resistant Lawns in Minneapolis
Like the look of a traditional lawn, but desire a bit less maintenance? Choose from one of our fescue options for a lawn that requires less water! By choosing Turf Type tall fescue, you can expect a lawn that looks like bluegrass but requires less water. For even lower maintenance, choose a fine fescue mix for a lawn that requires less water and mowing. Once any fescue mix is established, you will have a lawn that is drought tolerant and requires less fertilizer to maintain as well!
What can you expect?
Through a consultation we will first determine your goals and choose either Turf Type tall fescue or a No Mow fine fescue mix. Next, we determine if over-seeding or a complete replacement of your lawn is the best option. We can add fine fescue mixes to your existing lawn to help it handle drought conditions better. For maximum drought tolerance, we do recommend a full replacement of your current turf. Either way, you will need to water initially to establish the new seeding.
Our trained technician will alert you before service if you are home. When complete, a door-hanger is left behind with information about the service completed. You may also request prior notification to your services.
What is included in the Drought Tolerant Lawn Program?
- Choice of fescue grass that meets your goals (either Turf Type or No Mow fine fescue blend)
- Aeration and overseeding OR replacement of your existing turf with fescue grass
Will you have weeds?
Weed control is a separate service from establishing a drought tolerant lawn. Weed control is available with these grasses, but the healthier and thicker this grass gets, the less weeds you will have. Read more about our weed control options.
How much does it cost?
There is an initial investment to change your lawn to a new type of grass. Your consultant will provide you with a detailed estimate based on the size of your lawn and options chosen. Once established, you will have a reduction in future costs of both water and fertilizer due to the hardiness of fescue lawns.
