    I would not recommend Nutsedges as a lawn alternative.
    I would suggest contacting your County Extension office and talk to them about lawn alternatives specific to your area.
    I have included a link to help you find your closest office.
    Also some articles that offer some alternative drought tolerant lawn species.
