Turf Grass Sod Varieties:
Bermuda Grass - Bermudagrass is a perennial warm-season grass, meaning it comes back every year and grows most actively from late spring through hot summer months. Bermudagrass is more sensitive to cold temperatures than warm-season Zoysia grass or cool-season grasses, such as turf-type tall fescue.
It is actually a type of weed that originated from African Savannah and India. The name is Bermuda Grass because it was first introduced in the USA from Bermuda. Bermuda grass is a perennial lawn or turf grass, or grown as forage (pastures).
St Augustine Grass - St. Augustine grass is a warm-season lawn grass that is popular for cultivation in tropical and subtropical regions. It is a medium- to high-maintenance grass that forms a thick, carpetlike sod, crowding out most weeds and other grasses.
For cool-season grass, Ryegrass and Fine and Tall Fescues offer the most shade tolerance. They require four hours of sun minimum to survive. Warm-season grasses that grow in some shade include Zoysiagrass and St. Augustinegrass. When shopping for grass seed, choose shade-tolerant blends adapted to your region.
Hydroseeding - When growing a lawn from seed, you have two options: hydroseeding or hand-seeding. For very small spaces, hand-seeding is an inexpensive option that is great for homeowners. However, it’s not without its drawbacks. Learn more about installing a lawn by hand using grass seed.
A seeded lawn takes more effort to get established, but is more resistant to disease and pest issues than sod.
