So far this is my all time favorite sod. It has a fantastic color, and does as well or better in

it will pay for itself in water and fertilizer savings over time.

This is also a good sod. It’s reminiscent of St. Augustine. It has a
thicker blade and darker green color.

This is my top choice in St. Augustine. In our experience this sod
has performed very well in shaded areas. It requires at least 4-5 hours
of dappled sun.

St. Augustine, Raleigh

  • Shade tolerant, warm
  • Med. to dark green
  • Does not tolerant traffic
  • Thrives in high temps
  • Cold tolerant

Most commonly used St. Augustine sod. It is widely thought to be the
best at shade tolerance but in my experience the zoysia is better if not equal.
It is however a thirsty grass requiring more water than the other types of sod
