What grass grows best in sand?


Fescue grass is most used for growing lawns in sandier soils, according to Home Guides. Different types of fescue are suited to different environments. Creeping red fescue is the most popular type, because it establishes quickly and fills in empty patches in lawns, according to Home Guides.

Another type is chewings fescue, which germinates quickly and can thrive in sand with few nutrients and minimal fertilizer. Hard fescue's specialty is its ability to survive without much maintenance, according to Home Guides. It also grows slower, so it requires less mowing. Overall, fescue grasses can grow in both shade and sun, but they grow faster in the shade.
