There is no single "best" grass species to recommend for planting in Colorado lawns. The best grass for an individual lawn is determined by considering such factors as quality expectations, anticipated level of use/traffic, willingness or ability to provide basic turf management needs (including adequate irrigation), water/soil quality issues (such as salinity), elevation, and budget - to name a few.

There is no grass that will work well in every Colorado lawn. In most lawn situations, there will be a number of grass species that could be used with success. In some lawn situations, there may be only 1 or 2 species that could be expected to perform well.

Colorado State University has a publication discussing the pros and cons of each grass variety, as well as planting and ongoing care. I think it will answer all your questions. You can download a copy. Here's the web address: http://csuturf.colostate.edu/p...
