Abstract/Contents:Fescue is the most commonly used turfgrass in the high desert. The root zone of the fescue is structured so that 70 to 80 percent of the roots are in the first 12 inches of the soil. However, it requires a considerable amount of water but a lot of water and increased fertilization keep it looking nice in the high desert. Bermudagrass has roots as deep as six feet resulting in it withstanding hot temperatures better but it doesn't stay green all year.
