Answer: Both Bermuda and Zoysia grasses are tough and take a lot of abuse, but they're both slow to establish. Same for buffalograss. You might be better off choosing a grass seed mixture that contains both low and tall growing varieties. There are a few meadow mixes of 'eco-lawn' available from seed catalogs. These mixes include some low growing flowers such as viola and English daisy that make the area attractive all summer. <br><br>Whatever you choose, expect that both native grasses and weeds will eventually creep into your lawn area. <br><br>You might want to contact Peaceful Valley Farm Supply, PO Box 2209, Grass Valley, CA 95945 (ph# 916/272-4769). They sell a variety of grasses, including a mix called "Tough Turf".
