Grass Types

We frequently talk to people who don’t know what kind of grass they have in their lawn, or where to plant what type, so we hope to shed a little light on the different types of grasses we see in our service area (AR, FL, OK, TN, AL, GA, SC, and northern MS), as well as outline some of the pros and cons of each type.

Grasses are either warm-season grasses or cool-season grasses. Surprisingly, very few of the grasses grown in the United States are native to our country. Most were brought over from other countries and then adapted through new varieties and cultivars.

A quick guide to common grass types.
