    Lawns

    In Sedgwick County, there are 4 different grasses to choose from for lawns and athletic fields: tall fescue, bermudagrass, zoysiagrass, and buffalograss. Each grass has its benefits and challenges. An attractive lawn can highlight and complement your landscaping and add value to your property.

    Programs We Offer

    We usually offer a series of lawn care classes one or two times a year, typically in the spring and late summer or early fall. These classes may include any of the following topics:

    • Selecting the Right Lawn Grass
    • Building Your Soil Health
    • Basic Lawn Care (fertilizing, mowing, aerating)
    • WaterWise Irrigation
    • Common Insect & Disease Challenges
    • Controlling Weeds
    On Our Grounds

    Our grounds feature irrigated tall fescue near the building and non-irrigated Buffalograss around the outer edges of the parking lot in our Arboretum. We do not currently have any areas that demonstrate zoysia or Bermudagrass.

    FAQs
    I'm am planting or overseeding my fescue lawn this fall. When is the best time? What do I need to know to get my grass growing well? 

    We recommend seeding or sodding fescue in the fall, from September 1st to October 15th. Planting later in the fall may result in winter injury to the new grass. Here are some resources that will help you with planting your lawn.

    How can I reduce the amount of water I use on my lawn?

    There are many ways to reduce water use, ranging from choosing a more drought tolerant grass to optimizing your sprinkler system. For more information, please visit our page on WaterWise Irrigation.
