St. Augustine-Raleigh: (Stenotaphrum secundatum)
St. Augustine grass is a warm-season lawn grass that is medium- to high-maintenance, and forms a thick, carpet-like sod, crowding out most weeds and other grasses. It requires 4-6 hours of sunlight daily. St. Augustine grass is slightly drought resistant, so monitoring how much rain the lawn gets is very important. Watering the lawn at least twice a week is good for this grass. The best time to water is early morning.
St. Augustine-DelMar: (Stenotaphrum secundatum)
DelMar St. Augustine sod is a vigorous, dark emerald green, medium-coarse textured lawn grass that is one of the coldest tolerant varieties of St. Augustine sod. DelMar is a great choice in climates such as Dallas and Ft. Worth and has very good shade tolerance. It also grows well in full sun. DelMar is at the top of national testing in overall quality among St. Augustine grass varieties. It is the highest-ranking cold-tolerant, St. Augustine Decline Disease Free Variety available.
Bermuda-Common: (Cynodon dactylon)
Bermudagrass grows well throughout Texas. It is very tolerant of drought and traffic and requires full sunlight. Bermuda grass is quite visually appealing with its dark, blue-green color. Bermuda grass requires approximately 1 – 1.25 inches of water per week to stay healthy during summer. If the ground is sandy, a half-inch of water needs to be applied once every third day to keep grass growing as it should.
Zoysia: (Zoysia japonica)
Zoysia is a fine-bladed dark green grass with very good shade and drought tolerance. Zoysia also has one of the lowest water requirements of most turf grasses, requires minimal fertilization, and greens up earlier in the spring and stays green throughout the season. This variety easily handles foot traffic and is resistant to brown patch and most other pests.
