Abstract/Contents:Discussed are some factors and characteristics, positive or negative, to be considered when choosing a turfgrass species. Recommended warm season turfgrass species are listed along with descriptions. Those included are common and hybrid bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass, and zoysiagrass. Also listed and described are appropriate cool season turfgrasses that may be used for overseeding. These are ryegrass and perennial ryegrass. Recommended cool season turfgrasses for year-around color are tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, annual ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, and a mixture of Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Relative to other cool season turfgrasses, tall fescue does well under high summer temperatures.
