Landscaping Company Recommendations: 5

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 your home.

Bermuda grass, also known as couch or wire grass, is a popular turf

across the whole of Louisiana. It’s tolerant to drought and some amount

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.

Zoysia Grass your home.

Zoysia Grass is a warm season grass that enjoys all the seasons of a

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

is tolerant, to salt and drought too. It has slightly wider leaf blades with

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

and parks.

Centipede Grass

Also known as Chinese lawn grass, Centipede is a well-adaptive grass

for Louisiana home lawns. It is light-colored with medium-texture.

Centipede is popular for its low lawn care maintenance grass. It has a

low fertility requirement, grows slowly and is tolerant to acidic soil.

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 your home.

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

chinch bugs.

Now several improved varieties of St. Augustine grass are available with

landscaping companies but still the common ones are Raleigh and


Carpet Grass your home.

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).

Turfgrass selection is critical for its sustainability. It’s recommended to

observe your personal needs and availability for maintenance of the turf

and then choose the best one for your lawn. The easy way to begin is by

recognizing varieties adaptable to your region and looking into the

limitations of each variety.

spraying, mini excavator work, fertilization and weed control, sprinkler

system programming and repair, shrub and hedge trimming, and
