For the most part, there are 3 different types grass that we use for sodding in these parts. However, there are different varieties of each.  Much of the time, your property is going to demand what type you should use, mainly because of the amount of sun, shade, or water they receive.  

These 3 grass types are as follows

  • Zoysia grass - Moderate to very shade tolerant grass that is the slowest growing of the 3 grasses.  It has a rich dark green color, and has different varieties with different textures.  Varieties like diamond and emerald have a very fine blade of grass, do very well in shade, but struggle in open sunny areas in the heat of the summer.  Pallasades is a type of zoysia that we use a lot of for numerous reasons.  It does very well in shady areas, like under liveoak trees, but also does thrives in sunny areas once established.  It resembles Bermuda grass, and can be installed right next to Bermuda with little noticeable difference.  Zoysia grass is the more expensive of the 3 grasses, but it just flat out works for shady areas.  It's more weed tolerant than Bermuda and very rarily gets diseases
  • Bermuda grass - Quick growing grass that does very well in sunny areas, is very drought tolerant, but doesn't do well in shady areas, like under trees, or on the northside of a fence/wall.  There are more shade tolerant varieties of Bermuda, but they still won't hold up in shade like Zoysia or St. Augustine. It has a beautiful green color that can vary with different varieties.  It tends to get more weeds than the other 2 grasses, but basically never gets diseases.  It's the most cost efficient of the 3 grasses, but to many is still the prettiest grass
  • St. Augustine grass - A fast growing thick bladed grass, that does well in moderate shade, and does it's best in full sun.  Many people think this is the prettiest of the grasses, but the potential of fungus, diseases, and chinch bugs looms over the beauty of this grass.  At some point, additional treatments of fungicides and pesticides will be needed because of the inevitability of diseases and pests.
