We need water.
Using deeper rooting grass plants have a major impact on water conservation. Selecting turf grasses that use less water, are well adapted to our climate and soil conditions is a great start in achieving the goal of conserving water in irrigated lawns.
Some grasses use more water than others. Shallower rooting grasses use more water than deeper rooting grasses. Shallow rooting grass plants are not the sole cause of wasted water; plants do not waste water. People are the main cause of misused water and improper plant selection. People are also the solution for waters conservation.
There is no simple one size fits all answers for sod selection but, with considerate planning and proper plant choices we can cut out high water demand grasses and opt for more native and regionally adapted solutions. When we save water by selecting proper sod types for our region we save our most precious natural resource, water.
