Hi I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I'm at my wits end with this problem.
We stay near the coast and our soil is very sandy (beach sand). I have a horse and everywhere he walks his hooves cut up the existing growth moving the roots out of the ground, and so the plants die. I was thinking to find a grass with deep root system so that the grass would get a real good hold in the sand. We are staying in a biosphere and cannot use just any grass. They want us to use buffalo grass and I have planted some in an area but it grows so slowly and also as the soil becomes loose around the roots, it dies, also its not a very palatable grass for horses. Someone suggested Long Fescue (I think that's how its spelt). Do you think this grass will work?
Hope you will be able to help me. Thanks
