Good bermuda grass for KC?


Is there a good bermuda grass variety for the KC area? I have full sun, small area to sod. My zoysia died and a number of sod companies are telling me they don’t grew zoysia. What would you recommend I look at? - Sharon -

    No. Bermudagrass is not recommended this far north as it can potentially winterkill. Zoysia is still the best warm season grass for our area. If you did attempt to grow it avoid seeded types and plant only from vegetative plugs. The seeded types have poorer winter cold tolerances.

    Zoysia sod is avaialble in this area, just not the ones you spoke with.
