Grass

Zone Wellington, New Zealand | Lindy Blyth added on March 29, 2017 | Answered

I have an area of lawn that is hot and dry in summer but cold and damp in winter when the shade from my house prevents direct sunlight from shining on it. What grass type would be best for such a spot?

Lawns typically go dormant in winter, so the winter conditions aren't as important as the summer conditions. See this article for help with choosing a grass for this type of situation:
