When it comes to your lawn, you have an opportunity to create a beautiful and welcoming outdoor environment. You can choose and individualize the appearance of your lawn through the landscaping and selection of certain grasses and plants.
Picking the right type of grass for your landscape can make it easy to maintain a beautiful and lush lawn with the power to withstand the Florida climate and conditions.
Types of Grass for Landscapes
Choosing the right grass for you can make tending to your lawn easier. If you’re hoping to achieve a more beautiful lawn in Florida, consider the features of these types of grass to find the one that fits your needs.
St. Augustine Grass
If you choose St. Augustine grass for your lawn, you’ll benefit from its ability to flourish and grow even in droughts, heat, and salt air. Many Florida households include this kind of grass in their lawns to achieve a lush landscape of blue-green blades. St. Augustine grass requires adequate heat and sunlight, and it can grow rather quickly, meaning you may find yourself cutting it more often.
Those looking for a low-maintenance option that can handle heavy traffic and a variety of both sunny and shady conditions may benefit from the use of zoysia grass. This grass has a dark green appearance with thick, stiff blades that can withstand most climates and fight off weeds.
Bermuda grass can provide a full lawn of short and rough blades with an appealing green-gray color. Its deep roots and tough nature make it resistant to high-traffic, sunlight, and droughts. Bermuda grass is ideal for commercial spaces such as golf courses or sports fields. Some homeowners avoid the use of Bermuda grass as it tends to invade gardens or flowerbeds.
Anyone looking for a low-maintenance grass can enjoy the ease and versatility of centipede grass. The low-growing nature of this plant means it requires less frequent mowing. This centipede grass provides a great option for those looking to landscape in low-traffic areas because it can thrive in sunny and shady areas.
Customers with sandy soil conditions and extremely hot or dry weather conditions can benefit from the durability and coarse nature of bahia grass. This grass doesn’t require large amounts of fertilizer or irrigation and can grow quickly. Landscapes with bahia grass may require frequent mowing and constant sunlight.
Blue Grama Grass
Blue grama grass, often referred to as or mixed with buffalo grass, is a short grass that can live in dry climates and grow in most soil conditions. This grass doesn’t handle high traffic well and may require additional upkeep, such as weeding and mowing.
