The first step to a beautiful lawn is deciding which type of grass suits you best. Several factors come into play when it comes to choosing the right grass:
Soil Quality and Depth
Amount & Type of Traffic
Exposure to Sunlight\Shade
Available irrigation & Annual Rainfall
Palmetto St. Augustine
JaMur Zoysia is a medium textured grass. With its adaptability to full sun and moderate shade, JaMur is one of the most versatile turfgrass varieties available. JaMur needs less water and less fertilizer than other standard lawn grasses. Once established, this dense turf tends to choke out weeds. In addition, JaMur is considered a much-improved replacement for other Zoysia cultivars. Its attractive blue-green color is the best choice for high visibility areas, and high traffic residential and commercial applications.
Palmetto is a native St. Augustine grass cultivar selected for better color and finer texture than ordinary St. Augustine grass. Palmetto St. Augustine grass demonstrates superior shade, cold, frost, heat, and drought tolerance. This versatile turfgrass is used across the southern United States from the Carolinas to California under a wide range of climate and soil conditions making it an ideal choice for residential and commercial use.
Tifway 419 Bermuda
Raleigh St. Augustine
Tifway 419 features a dense canopy that spreads rapidly and recovers quickly from injury. Experts call it one of the most durable hybrids in the Bermuda grass family. Its tolerance of short mowing and resistance to disease make it a versatile grass that is also excellent for roughs and fairways. Landscape professionals prefer the grass because it performs well in a variety of climates and full sun environments.
Raleigh forms a thick lawn by having wide-coarse leaf blades with a dark green color. An aggressive grass, Raleigh recovers from moderate traffic relatively quicky from above ground runners. Although one of the best shade tolerant grasses, Raleigh needs 5 to 6 hours of direct sunlight to achieve a desired looking turf. Highly susceptible to chinch bugs and fall brown patch.
