Types of sod we offer:

We offer many different types of Bermuda, St. Augustine, and Zoysia turfgrasses.  Keep reading to learn a little more about each grass type.  

Bermudabermuda turf

Bermuda is a warm-season turfgrass that is known for being drought-tolerant and fine-textured.  It is very versatile and durable, which is why it is used not only for residential properties, but also for athletic fields and golf courses.

Bermuda prefers full-sun and does not do well in shady areas.  It grows and spreads quickly and is able to be mowed very short.

This turf does go dormant in winter and may try to creep into your flower beds if you’re not careful.  There are multiple varieties and hybrid versions available.  

st augustine grassSt. Augustine

St. Augustine is another warm-season turfgrass.  It is the grass most commonly grown in Texas.  

It is known for being shade and drought-tolerant.  This turfgrass has a deep-rooting potential and establishes itself quickly.

St. Augustine will thrive in just about any well-draining soil.  The color is a natural blue-green color and the blades are broad and coarse.  

A downside is that St. Augustine cannot withstand heavy foot traffic and it is prone to chinch bugs.  

Zoysiazoysia tenuifolia

Zoysia is a warm-season turfgrass that has lovely, light green color.  It is drought-tolerant and handles moderate foot traffic.

This turfgrass is dense and low-maintenance.  It is somewhat shade and cold tolerant.  

The nice, green color will stay even in times of drought.  This is because the grass is so dense that the roots stay cool.  

Zoysia blades are tough, which means your mower blades will need to be sharpened regularly.  One thing to watch out for with Zoysia grass is thatch build-up.
