Sod can help improve the aesthetic appeal of your landscaping as soon as it is installed. When looking into sod for your home or business, there are several types to choose from. The type that is best for you will depend largely upon how much maintenance the sod requires.
At FloriTurf, we offer several top-quality sod varieties for you to choose from. Our sod is grown and cut to order in 400 sq. ft. cuts.
Types of Sod
BAHIA—A hardy sod used in areas without irrigation, This is a common pasture grass which upon care and maintenance can provide an attractive lawn. It is drought resistant due to its deep roots and it is best used in sunny areas. It needs to be mowed often due to the seed heads and in order to keep weeds down.
ST. AUGUSTINE FLORATAM—This is a coarse-textured species forming stolons or above-ground stems that reach out for several feet. St. Augustine has been one of the most popular southern grasses for a beautiful lawn and requires full sun to thrive.
ST. AUGUSTINE CLASSIC—This grass is shade tolerant and low growing, therefore, less mowing is needed. It is more cold tolerant than Floratam and has a smaller leaf. Once established, it requires the same amount of water as St. Augustine Floratam unless it is in a shady area.
CENTIPEDE—Sometimes called “the lazy man’s lawn” because it takes little maintenance. Centipede does well in nonfertile, acid soil and does very well in shade. Once established, this sod readily rebounds after brief droughts. Never fertilize this grass more than once a year. If sod is in full sun, irrigation is needed at least once a week.
EMPIRE ZOYSIA—Once it is established, its genetic makeup helps it survive drought conditions. It grows slowly and is naturally resistant to chinch bugs. This grass is durable, soft-textured grass which handles cold. Although it will become dormant and turn brown if it does not receive sufficient water, it will quickly turn green upon irrigation.
