This is Houston Grass South Owner Michael Romine talking about the advantages and disadvantages of the sod varieties we carry. This video was done before we started to carry TamStar St. Augustine, Cavalier Zoysia and Emerald Zoysia grass.
More information about the grass varieties we carry is available at the Texas A&M Aggie Turf website. We carry four varieties of the St. Augustine turf grass – TamStar sod, Raleigh sod, Palmetto sod, and Floratam sod, the two varieties of Bermudagrass sod – Tifway 419 sod and Texturf 10 sod, and three varieties of Zoysia grass sod — Palisades, Cavalier and Emerald.
Shade tolerance and watering requirements are the two most controversial topics as they pertain to turf grass. That said, we do believe that TamStar and Palmetto St. Augustine grass are the best grasses to use if shade is an issue — just make sure that the area does get at least four hours of direct sunlight and filtered sunlight throughout the day or your grass will not last more than a couple of seasons.
If you have questions about the best grass variety for your project, please call our office at 281-431-7441 for help in making your selection.
As far as watering requirements, our opinion is that if you want the grasses to look their best, not just survive, every species of turf grass is going to require approximately the same amount of water. We recommend at least an inch of water every week (from irrigation or the sky) during the growing season and an inch of water every other week during other times of the year.
