Florida Grass...What are they??

April 25, 2016

 

What is the best grass for a lush green lawn? That all depends, on where you live, and how much work you want to invest. There are 5 different kinds to choose from, one is right for you.

Bahia grass has a deep root system and will stay green and nice looking as long as it gets water. In the winter time, it will turn brown, but once spring comes and bring rain, it will start to green up.  It has a course texture and light green color. It requires only occasional fertilizer. 

 

Bermuda grass will grow in many different kinds of soils. It is drought resistant and makes a great lawn with minimal fertilizing and regular mowing. Bermuda grass will grow in the shade, but grows best in full sun. It can tolerate heavy foot traffic and cold weather. It will stay green well into the winter if watered weekly. 

 

St. Augustine grass is a fast growing grass that needs to be mowed on a regular schedule of every five or seven days. t is drought resistant, but will need occasional watering in times of extended periods of hot, dry weather. Avoid over fertilizing as that will cause too rapid growth that will encourage insect infestations. However, in order to keep this grass looking lush and great, we recommend having a regular Spray Company to keep the bugs, diseases and fungus away and under control.  This is the mid level cost of grass. (there is are 3 different types of this grass. Where the grass is being laid will determine what type of grass should be purchased) 

 

.Zoysia grass has been called the perfect solution for lawns.  It is a soft grass and some compare it to Golf Course grass. Planted in plugs it slow growing. Zoysia grass does not need a lot of attention. It will grow slowly filling in bare spots. It is not a cool weather grass, however. It will need to me mowed with a 21" mower at all times, and will need at least 1 year of a professional fertilizing company to ensure that it grows beautifully for the first year. This is the most expensive of the grass available today. 

 

the Finding the right grass for your soil and climate is the first step to having a consistently beautiful lawn. With a little luck and bit more work you can be enjoying your lawn for years to come.
