Phoenix Grass - Midiron

© Liberty Tsighis, used with permission

Midiron is Phoenix's most popular variety of grass for a number of reasons, not least of which is its durability. Able to thrive in our harsh sunshine, it is able to repair itself quickly and is one of the easiest varieties to maintain. With a medium leaf and dark color it has become a very popular choice.

Midiron is best for Phoenix yards with heavy traffic and homeowners who want a low maintenance, durable lawn. One of Midiron's advantages is its ability to recover from pet urine. More resilient than most, it resists browning and re-greens quickly. It is considered a low maintenance, hardy grass. Good for active children and their pets.
