I forget the name of the grass, but a long time ago I was told about a grass that roots in deep. It sounded good to me because the last thing I want to do is run sprinklers to keep the lawn looking good (the deep roots apparently drink from a depth where the soil is always moist enough even during droughts). Also it was described to me that the grass's roots deter burrowing animals from tunneling the lawn apart because they can't get below into the soft obstruction free soil like typical shallow rooted residential lawns. This mystery grass was described that if I skid a log across the grass and dug a trench that I can rake the spoils back into the wound and the grass would obviously still be rooted and eventually surface and look normal over the next week or two making it a pretty maintenance free ground cover. Anyone familiar with what im describing? Is there any reason why I wouldn't want a grass like this on my property?

Thanks newsman I'll check out the "cornell coop extension". I definitely don't want to have something poisonous or too invasive. I wish I remembered more details of the conversation I had with the guy, but I know he said seeds are commercially available, just that the target audience isn't residential home owners.
