Low growing Lawn grass for southern Kansas
I am new to southern Kansas from North Texas. I hate all the crabgrass that is everywhere because I can't keep it out of my rose and ornamental plant beds. Is there any low or slow growing grass I can plant? I have already killed all the Bermuda and crabgrass that was in my backyard. I have left some white dutch clover which I believe to be beneficial to the lawn and other plants. I just don't want all cover because of the bees that are attracted to it, some are fine but I spend a lot of time outside and don't like bee stings. Can you help with any suggestions? I have been using Preen to keep the crabgrass away until I can find a solution.
