In their natural habitat the plants I have selected here grow in sandy soils and need less nutrients from the soil to survive and are drought resistant. Although the sandy soil in your garden can be improved by adding plenty of nutrient rich organic matter and mulching the soil, these plants will grow in.

      You want to look for things like water retention, alkalinity, nutrient content etc. Sandy soils are free draining, acidic, and nutrient poor: Clay soils are fertile, poorly draining, and difficult to work. Loam soils are probably ideal for working being fine, fertile and well drained. The types of grasses that grow well in Texas depend on the part of the state and the season of the year. With lawns, timing is everything. It is better to grow most grasses in direct sunlight than shade for a stronger root, but there are exceptions.

It is most commonly found in 7- 16 inch precipitation zones, but occasionally is found in areas receiving as low as 5- inches to as much as inches mean annual precipitation. Its elevation range is most common from to feet, but it has been found at elevations as low as feet. EstablishmentFile Size: KB. Its feeding value over the year is usually 5–10% lower than for other grasses, however it is useful in south west Victoria, particularly in areas of low rainfall and strongly acidic and low fertility soils, because of its ability to persist and its lack of substances toxic to grazing stock.
