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.
