Bermuda grass is one of the most sun loving
grasses here in Georgia. You see it in most new subdivisions and
on most golf courses. It requires moderate care, maintenance and
mowing. It is one of the most popular sods in Georgia because of
this. Lawn Warriors lays Bermuda weekly and can generally get it
year round. For the best looking Bermuda a sprinkler system and
regular mowing and fertilization is recommended. Bermuda loves the
sun but also thrives under lots of watering. Bermuda goes dormant
during the winter months here in Georgia and turns a yellowish brown
color. The green will return in the spring in May.
Fescue grass is a cool season grass but
has adjusted to Georgia’s hot temperatures. Fescue is easy
to seed or lay as sod and is very full looking with a tall blade.
Fescues have the same components with three strong ones being tolerance
to shade, the ability to stay green all year long and having a good
resistance to drought. It is more expensive than Bermuda (when you
buy it as sod) and can only be cut certain times of the year. The
best time to reseed fescue is in the spring and fall as conditions
for seed germinating (hot and cold temperatures) are best.
Zoysia grass comes from the Asian part
of the world and when you look at its blade and the way it grows
it definitely looks oriental. Zoysia is a beautiful grass that should
be laid as sod. Zoysia loves the sun but can also handle the shade
(unlike Bermuda) which makes it a very desirable grass in Georgia
and expensive. Zoysia generally costs 50-75% more than Bermuda and
Fescue but the results are beautiful. Zoysia does go brown and dormant
when the temperatures drop below 70 but will return in the spring.
Like Bermuda it is a very low maintenance grass, however regular
watering and fertilization are recommended for optimum beauty.
