WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF GRASS?

I get asked this question frequently. The truth is, there is no one "best type of grass". All types of grass have their strengths and weaknesses. It really
depends on the environment, how you are going use the grass and how much maintenance you want to put into it. Here are some of the main strengths and weaknesses of the different types of grass that grow in our area.

CENTIPEDE
Strength: Low maintenance, requires little fertilizer.
Weakness: If maintained properly doesn't create a lush lawn. If over maintained with too much water and fertilizer, dies out eventually.

ST. AUGUSTINE
Strengths: The most shade tolerant of all warm season grasses.
Weaknesses: Chinch bugs and not traffic tolerant.

BERMUDA
Strengths: Very durable, traffic and drought tolerant.
Weakness: Not shade tolerant, needs lots of sun.

ZOYSIA
Strength: Creates lush thick lawn that does a great job out competing weeds.

Weaknesses: Slow growing, slow to recover from problems. Invasive growth into surrounding planting beds.

BAHIA
Strengths: Low maintenance, drought tolerant.

Weaknesses: Doesn't grow very dense or create a lush lawn, mainly used as a pasture grass.
