What Type Of Grass And Weeds Are In Your Lawn?

Maple Leaf Lawn Care & Pest Control specialists will inspect your lawn and consider the best treatment for the types of grass you have. In addition, if new grass is required, we will help you select a type of specific grass best fitted to your lawn. Is your lawn partially shaded or in full sun…it make a big difference. Lawns can be made up of a mixture of grass species to take advantage of the different characteristics of different grasses.

bermuda grass in a yard

Bermuda Grass is the most common Grass in the Atlanta area. It’s also used on golf courses, sports fields, and high-trafficked areas due to its tolerance to foot traffic, drought, and cold. That being said, it suffers when grown in a shaded area, so if you do choose to go with Bermuda, you’ll want to make sure that you lay another type of grass in shaded areas of your lawn.

centipede grass growing through a crack

Centipedegrass is best used in the southern part of Atlanta. It’s an extremely low-maintenance grass type that grows best in warm climates, included drought-stricken areas. When it’s healthy, Centipedegrass is great at fighting off weeds and other grass types.

saint augustine grass

St. Augustine is another popular grass type for the Southeastern United States. It’s a wide-blade grass that works best in high-temperature, sunny areas, especially along coastal lawns. When it comes to cold weather, St. Augustine isn’t the most tolerant, but it will survive the mild Atlanta winters. Most people will lay down sod or use plugs when adding St. Augustine to their lawns.

fescue grass

Fescue is a cool season grass that requires more water in the summer than warm season grasses. You’ll find a need to mow Fescue more frequently in the fall and spring, as those seasons provides optimal growing conditions. That being said, Fescue is a great grass to have in a yard that has both shade and sun as it thrives in either with the right care.

zoysia grass

Zoysia is a warm season grass that is fairly tolerant of cold temperatures, which is great for yards residing in transition zones. The grass is drought resistant, although it will need more watering during the hotter months compared to other warm grass types. Zoysia thrives in direct sunlight, but can also grow well in partial shade. You’ll find that Zoysia typically has a fine texture, much less than that of St. Augustine.
