Replacing a Thirsty Lawn

Ever wondered how to replace your thirsty turf with a sustainable, waterwise lawn?
Follow these easy steps:

  1. Measure the lawn to be replaced.
  2. “Kill” the existing lawn—Rototill, smother, solarize or treat it.
  3. Drill and fill with plugs or seed your new lawn.
  4. Water and weed to establish your lawn.

A one-season investment will pay off every year after. See our detailed Lawn Replacement Instructions for our step-by-step planting guide.


In Your Words:

I bought 4 trays of UC Verde grass plugs 6 years ago, planted as directed a foot apart and it filled in rapidly. Watered it until it was established, then sat back and enjoyed it along with my grandchildren and cats. They seem to be fascinated by the thick, spongy feel to it, plus it's great for taking naps on. I rarely need to water it and only mow it once or twice a year. I could not be more satisfied- truly happy I gave it a try!
