Answer: To keep a lawn green all season, you either need to water is a lot, or grow a combination of grasses. The best grasses for your region are hybrid Bermuda grass overseeded with an annual or perennial ryegrass. Ask your county extension office (ph# 505/243-1386) for a list of varieties that are best for your area.
To improve the organic matter content and structure of your soil, add a lot of compost and grow a green manure crop, such as cowpeas and buckwheat, and till them in before they blossom. These additions will create a healthy foundation for your lawn grass, and help hold moisture longer.
