Bahia Grass

Bahia-grass is a good low input warm-season lawn and pasture grass. Bahia can be easily maintained and provides a decent "medium utility" turf grass lawn for the southern states.

 

Bahia-grass requires a moderate amount of lawn care, maintenance, and mowing. Bahia's blades are thin and green and have a soft somewhat soft texture. 

 

Common pests include grub worms, webworms, and mole crickets. Bahia-grass is known for going dormant (turning brown in color) in the winter months and coming back again in the spring after the last frost.

 

In order to prevent freeze damage to the roots, an application of winter rye is recommended.

Advantages Include:

Disadvantages Include:

  •  High disease and insect resistance

  •  Survives in a variety of soils from sandy to clays

  • Grows well in infertile soils

  •  Withstands high traffic areas

  •  Grows thick enough to compete with weeds

  •  More drought-resistant than other turfgrasses

  • Prolific seed production during growing seasons

  • Course texture

  • Not suitable for high shade areas

  • Goes dormant during winter months

St. Augustine Grass

 Saint Augustine is a warm-season lawn grass that is popular for use in tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is a fairly high maintenance grass that forms a thick, carpet-like lawn, crowding out most weeds and other grasses. It is a dark green grass with broad, flat blades.

 

Saint Augustine is used primarily for lawns and does not tolerate high traffic as well as other turfgrasses. After being established, Saint Augustine depends largely on management. Mowing, fertilization and supplemental watering are required to maintain a dense, green, weed-free turf. Common pests include chinch bugs, armyworms, grubs, and webworms. Consistent and proper pest control regimens are required to maintain a healthy lawn.

 

Common diseases include brown patch, gray leaf spot, rust, downy mildew, and many others. Most are caused by fungi and can be controlled with good management and fungicides.

Advantages Include:

  •  High shade tolerance

  •  High heat tolerance

Disadvantages Include:

  • Low cold tolerance

  • High maintenance

  • Insect Prone

Bermuda Grass

Bermuda is one of the most sun-loving warm-season lawn and pasture grasses. Bermuda requires a moderate amount of lawn grass care, maintenance, and mowing.

 

Sodded areas should be water two or more times each day with 1/4in. of water until it is established (it no longer picks up when you pull on it.)

 

Bermuda is also good for moderate traffic areas of the lawn.

Advantages Include:

  • Grows best in full sun

  • Medium to fine texture

  • Grows vigorously

  • Establishes rapidly and is able to out-compete for most weed species

Disadvantages Include:

  • Requires HIGH maintenance

  • Poor tolerance to insects, diseases, and nematodes

  • Grows rapidly and can quickly overcome flower and landscape beds

  • Aggressive growth promotes thatch build-up

Zoysia Grass

Zoysia grass is grown successfully from the upper North to even in some areas of the cool season's zones depending on the variety.

 

Zoysia grass, when properly maintained makes a beautiful lawn with a fine to medium textured leaf.

Advantages Include:

  • Adapts to a variety of soils

  • Tolerant to shade, salt, and traffic

  • Dense

  • Slow growth results in a reduced need to mow

Disadvantages Include:

  • Slow to establish

  • Heavy thatch which requires periodic renovation

  • Poor drought tolerance

  • Prone to damage from nematodes and other diseases

  • Shallow root system  

Centipede Grass

Centipede is a low, medium textured, slow-growing, but aggressive grass that can produce a dense, attractive, weed-free yard. It is more shade tolerant than Saint Augustine and Zoysia grass.

In general, centipede grass is a low-maintenance grass that tends to grow best in acidic soils of the regions it is commonly found.

Advantages Include:

  • Grows well in full sun

  • Generally a low maintenance grass

  • Can tolerate moderate amounts of shade

Disadvantages Include:

  • Generally turns brown in hot and dry weather and goes dormant in the winter

  • Slow growth rate

  • Not a durable grass
