What Kinds of Grass Should You Get?

There are several factors to consider when you’re thinking about which kind of grass to get.

  • How much sun do you have?
  • Can you get water out to it?
  • Do you want grass growing in your lawn, or can you be patient and plant seeds?
  • Is the area going to experience high volumes of foot traffic?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Would you prefer a softer grass, or something more durable?
  • Is frequent lawn mowing going to be a problem, or do you want a slower growing grass?

Sod Installation
At United Turf, we understand that grass types can vary depending on the climate and conditions of your yard. This is why it’s important to choose the right grass for your specific needs. Different grasses are better suited for different climates, yards, shade or sun exposure and maintenance requirements.

In Hampton Roads, popular grass types include Zeon Zoysia grass which has a medium-to-fine texture; Bermuda grass which is very drought tolerant; Fescue grass which does well in shady areas; Centipede grass which requires low maintenance; St Augustine grass which is salt-tolerant and grows best in sunny areas. Depending on the type of lawn you desire, each type of grass will require different levels of care such as watering schedules, fertilization programs or pest control measures so it’s important to research what works best for your area before making a decision.
