We carefully select the types of turf and grass that we recommend to our customers. There are several types and varieties of grass and turf used for residential and commercial landscaping that will grow well on lawns in Texas. Our pallets of different types and varieties of grass and turf have been carefully selected to grow well in Texas lawns. Some turf and grass is drought and heat tolerant while others are not. Some varieties can grow in shade while others need lots of sun. Some have special mowing requirements to promote growth. Selecting the right type of grass or turf to grow in your Texas lawn can be challenging, but our staff is trained to help you select the one that is suitable for your landscaping requirements.
Let's talk about the differences between grass and turf. You must look at the root system to distinguish between the two. Turf has a bunch-type growth and will feel thicker when you walk on it. Empire Zoysia, Palisades Zoysia, Cavalier Zoysia, and Jamur Zoysia are examples of turf.
Grass spreads by developing rhizomes under the ground and will feel thinner. Bermuda grass and Centipede grass are two examples. Both turf and grass are excellent choices but your selection depends on the location in which you are going to plant the grass or turf, drought conditions, the maintenance involved, and the grass or turf's tolerance to heat and cold conditions. Check out the turf and grass chart below.
Since we select types of grass and turf that are suitable for our area of Texas, you do not have to worry about purchasing a product that looks good in a catalogue but will not do well in College Station, Bryan, or the Brazos Valley.
Some types of grass and turf are excellent for shade while others need sunlight. Some types of grass and turf are great for foot traffic, like grass used on golf courses, while others are not so tolerant. The availability and resistance chart below is a guide to help you make your selections. Our knowledgeable staff can clarify any questions that you may have about your purchase.
