St. Augustine Grass (Floratam)
This type of grass is a Florida favorite. It loves the heat, is resistant to drought and can tolerate high levels of salt. Water it well, and you’ll get a thick layer of turf, filled with broad flat grass blades in a lovely blue-green color. St. Augustine grass establishes quickly in just about any type of soil and produces above-ground runners that help it spread and grow. While many Floridians appreciate its ability to grow quickly, others dread the day it needs to be cut. And with St. Augustine grass, that day comes around a little more often. St. Augustine grass is also not a fan of cold temperatures or persistent shade, and it is susceptible to SAD virus and common pests, like chinch bugs.
Planting Methods: Plugs, sprigs or sod – seeds are rare.
Ideal Soil Type: Grows in many soil types – ph should be between 5.0 and 8.5.
Recommended Mowing Height – 3.5 to 4 inches
Bahiagrass has coarse leaves and thrives in hot, dry climates and sandy soils. It doesn’t require a lot of fertilizer or irrigation, making it an excellent choice for homes on large lots or acreage — or anywhere where there is little to no irrigation. During extended periods of drought, Bahiagrass will go dormant until conditions become favorable for regrowth. Pensacola Bahiagrass is the most common type of Bahiagrass in Florida. It is more resistant to stress and cooler temperatures than other types of Bahiagrass. However, it still presents some challenges. This grass has unattractive seed heads, is sensitive to overwatering, is susceptible to weeds, and grows poorly in shaded areas. Weekly mowing is often needed.
Planting Method: Seeds or sod
Ideal Soil Type: Grows best in sandy soils with a low ph.
Recommended Mowing Height – 3 to 4 inches
Zoysia is a dark green turf-like grass with stiff leaf blades. It grows well in the sun and can handle lots of traffic, making it a popular choice for golf courses and coastal areas. Drought tolerance and disease tolerance levels are good, and it can also handle partial shade. This type of grass is very low maintenance, requiring very little water and fertilizer to survive. Its dense turf makes it less susceptible to weeds. Zoysia will go dormant after a frost, but resumes growth once the soil returns to 70 degrees. It reproduces via stolons and rhizomes.
Planting Method: Seed, sod or plugs.
Ideal Soil Type: Adapts to a variety of soil types, but thrives in soils low in potassium.
Recommended Mowing Height – 1 to 2 inches
Preparation for Laying Down Sod
Before laying your sod, it is critical for you to ensure that your soil is well-prepared beforehand. Ensure the ground is level and clear the surrounding land of debris.
The general rule of thumb is applying herbicides a week before installation to eliminate all weeds. During installation, be careful to avoid gaps since they give room for weeds to grow.
Equipment to Lay Sod
Besides saving you from ‘back-breaking’ labor, using the right equipment guarantees you a fantastic outcome for your project.
Caring for Your New Sod
Because sod dries out quickly, try to water the new sod 2-3 times daily for a week to ensure proper root development.
Avoid mowing the area immediately, and stay off of the sod for at least three weeks to allow the sod to establish strong roots
