Turf Talk: Experts say North Texas lawns need to change | GreenSource DFW

www.greensourcedfw.org [cached]

Bill Neiman, owner of Native American Seed, at his seed-cleaning facility in Junction.
If you ask Bill Neiman, co-founder with his wife Jan, of Native American Seed, that's not a good use of resources. Neiman takes a dim view of the thirsty lawns that most people maintain in North Texas, seeing them as monocultures that put their owners on a treadmill of having to mow, weed and fertilize. These lawns, which are typically composed of exotic turf like Bermuda and St. Augustine, drain their owner's time and wallets while also harming groundwater, beneficial insects, butterflies, birds and clean air, Neiman says. There is a better way. But first let's back up for a moment to the summer of 1980. That's when Neiman, living in the Dallas suburb of Flower Mound, had his native grass epiphany. Neiman and his company went on to develop Sun Turf, their first native grass mix designed for drought-tolerant residential use. "It goes from 110 degrees down to minus 40 degrees and can live on down to 11 inches of rainfall a year," Neiman says. People installing native turf have to remember to NOT do everything they've become accustomed to, says Neiman. If they stop watering, stop the pesticide and fertilizer applications, the buffalo mixes, once established, will grow thick and green. By contrast, Bermuda is "an invasive exotic" that came originally from Africa, and St. Augustine hails from Caribbean, Neiman says disparagingly. Because these plants didn't evolve in North Texas, they require coaxing with fertilizers and weed treatments as well as regular watering. Native turf will grow a little higher, look a little different (even if it evokes Bermuda) and wave a bit more in the wind than conventional domesticated grasses. Both Sun Turf and Thunder Turf grow to a height of 3 to 8 inches, and won't be happy if shorn to less than 3 inches. Neiman acknowledges that this challenges people's concept of what the turf enveloping their home should look like. However, there are multiple consolation prizes for making the aesthetic shift, including helping save the next generation from water scarcity. "People are going to have to get over it, because one of these days they'll go to the water faucet and nothing will come out," he said. Still, Hall, Neiman and Woodson concede that conventions die hard. Neiman, too, says he sees the change taking place, albeit slowly, lawn by lawn. The company he started with a borrowed shovel, rake and lawnmower 40 years ago has experienced slow, steady growth.
