How Do I Know Which Grass Type is Right for Me?

The climate in South Carolina is ideal for creating a lush, green lawn if you choose the proper grass. But, with so many options, how do you know what’s right for you? First, take a look at a guide to grasses that will thrive in South Carolina.

Zoysia

Zoysia exhibits good shade and wear tolerance and is an excellent choice for a lawn with varying levels of sunlight. Proper irrigation practices are essential in Zosia to help prevent patch disease.

Tall Fescue

Fescue is a cool season grass. It is dark and fine-bladed and looks great when first planted. However, it can thin out over time, especially if there’s a particularly dry season, so it often requires reseeding each fall.

Bermuda

Bermuda grass comes in quickly once seeded, and it loves the heat of the south. Because it’s forgiving when it comes to salty air and soil, it does well in the coastal regions. However, it doesn’t love the shade and can appear thinner if you have a particularly shady yard.

Centipede

Centipede grass is low maintenance, requiring minimal mowing. It’s one of the most common types of grass used in lawns in South Carolina because it does well in our southern climate and tolerates some shade.

St. Augustine

St. Augustine grass is also known as Charleston grass due to its resiliency in the salty climate by the coast. It loves the hot temperatures and humidity in that part of the state but will thrive in semi-shady areas. It grows fast but is low maintenance.

If you’re still unsure about which direction to go for your lawn and garden, the pros are standing by to help. Contact the team at W.P. Law today for expert guidance on all your landscaping needs.
