warm season grasses
Your lawn is a natural complement to your surroundings and your home.
It can be an outdoor brunch place for a gathering, a playground for your
kids and pets, or a place to relax and unplug for your family. Landscaping
companies offer a variety of grasses but it’s you who needs to decide
what you want for your lawn.
Since every lawn is a little different with different needs, the type of
grass turf that thrives the best is usually different.
Here are some of the best ones to fulfill your needs of a warm season
Bermuda grass, also known as couch or wire grass, is a popular turf

of salinity, but not shade. Since Bermuda grass is aggressive in nature, it
needs a lot of mowing and generally lies in the category of high-
maintenance grasses maintained by a lawn care company. Many types
of Bermuda grass varieties are available, ranging from common one
that’s suitable for public areas and athletic fields, to the ones that
require extremely high maintenance and are ideal for high-end golf
Hybrid Bermuda grasses are the highest-quality turfs and are used in
high-maintenance areas. They can be planted using sod, plugs or sprigs.

year but winters. It has both, aboveground stolons and below ground
rhizomes which makes it so resistant to harsh weather. Zoysia is highly
tolerant to heat, has low lawn mowing and fertilizing requirements and

trimmed tips. It is suitable for homes, open grounds, business centers,

Overfertilization can result in excessive thatch buildup. It also tolerates
little drought and does well in shade. Centipede grass can be grown
either with seeds or vegetatively however, seeding is recommended
only for larger areas with irrigation.
St. Augustine Grass
Another well-adapted and popular turf for home lawns is St. Augustine
grass, also called Charleston grass. It grows easily and quickly from 4-
inch plugs and produces a coarse turf with dark to blue-green foliage. It
can tolerate drought and salinity to some extend. But it has more pest
problems compared to other grasses such as brown patch disease and

landscaping companies but still the common ones are Raleigh and
A native of West Indies, Carpet grass is also known as Louisiana grass as
it’s been used in agriculture for a long time In Louisiana. It requires a
little fertilizing, persists well in poor soil and tolerates light shade. It is
moderately attractive, appears coarse and open centipede with the light
green color, and has many characteristics similar to Centipede grass.
This makes it a great utility turfgrass that blends well with centipede.
There are several species of carpet grass that grow naturally in
Louisiana, but the most attractive ones are grown with the seed of the
common type (Axonopus affinis).

recognizing varieties adaptable to your region and looking into the
limitations of each variety.
