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:

Wanted a lawn or lawn substitute that was attractive, low water requirement, suitable for our climate, any easy to care for. These plugs filled all our requirements and then some. It takes root easily and spreads rapidly. We started with one foot spacing, but will use two foot spacing now. Also the fact it does not send up seed pods like other buffalo grass is a real plus in the appearance of the lawn and the need to mow regularly.
