For people who want to use native plants and yet want to retain the look of conventional landscaping, one solution is the use of native buffalo grass. Buffalo grass is native to the western plains.

It does take longer to come out of dormancy in the spring and becomes brown earlier in the fall than traditional cool season grasses.
