Answer: Ryegrass is probably your best option. The trouble with sandy soil is that it drains too quickly and does not hold the nutrients grass needs to thrive. You can improve the situation if you incorporate lots of organic matter into the soil prior to seeding your lawn. The organic matter will help sandy soils retain moisture for a longer period of time and will also provide some nutrients to the roots of the turf. Ryegrass is the most tolerant of sandy soils but you will still need to water and feed more often than if you grew grass on improved soils. Best wishes with your lawn.
