I am looking for an extremely hardy grass, like the tough stuff in playgrounds and sports fields, for a doggie play area. Any suggestions ?
There are several ways to go about this issue. Some grasses, and other low growing plants will be perfect, but there are also other means. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lawn-substitutes/lagen/high-traffic-lawn-options.htm
Good morning, We have recently moved into custom built offices, and have various planters that we need to fill. My MD envisaged the look of wild grass. After doing my own research, I feel I need help to make sure that we get it right and don't chose a plant that will die in a heated space. We also would need to consider people with allergies. Can you help?! Many Thanks

Hello, I am wondering which type of grass is the easiest to care and best for the Minnesota climate? I would appreciate any suggestions and tips as well. Thanks in advance.
This is an easy one, as I also live in MN.
The most common cool-season grasses in MN are Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass.

What are any good grass seed or fertilizers that are pet friendly? Thanks in advance!
Any uncoated or organic grass seed will be safe. The same will be for a fertilizer. We do not usually recommend any products or places to buy them, but I would check online, or with your local extension services.

Can this lawn be saved? Where I live (over 55 yrs for residency) the lawn is being overtaken by bent grass. Gardeners sprayed herbicide in the cold weather but have yet to spray again as it is needed. Warm weather is here. Can this lawn be saved? I see bent grass under the remaining tall fescue everywhere.
There are pre and post emergent herbicides that target Creeping Bentweed. Look for this specific weed on the label.
This is a selective product that will control the bentgrass without harming your desired grasses. The best time to start this process is in mid-July, and it requires three applications, spaced two weeks apart, to achieve complete control. Once the herbicide is applied to the lawn, the bentgrass will turn bright white and be very noticeable, so be prepared that this will happen. Once the bentgrass is controlled, you can reseed the lawn.
What is the watering and moving maintenance requirement for Bent Grass?
I thought I would let the So Cal extension service answer your question. There are 2 articles. The mowing question is difficult to answer because it depends on how much sun and moisture the grass receives.
