Bayside Sod’s Grass Lawn Type Guide

Do You Have the Wrong Grass Lawn Type for Your Home?

Many people don’t realize that there are different grass types and that if you don’t choose the right one for your region and home conditions, it’ll cost you a lot of time and money in future repairs. Most grasses can handle only certain conditions and ignoring this will only cause your lawn to suffer.

Florida’s Most Common Grass Lawn Types

The most common grass lawn type for Florida homes is St. Augustine because it is well-suited to the hot weather, humidity, sporadic rainfall, and sandy soil that dominate the region. However, there are several other options to choose from at Bayside Sod.

Bayside Sod’s Grass Options


Zoysia grass is an excellent choice for sunny, sandy areas and does well in coastal regions.  It can require a little more maintenance than St. Augustine, but with the right care, Zoysia grass offers a softer texture and more manicured look for your Florida lawn.


Bermuda has a beautiful, dark green color that looks great year-round. It’s also one of the best options for hot weather climates like Florida, and since it requires less water than other grasses, you’ll save money on your water bills.

Bahia Grass

Bahia is a popular option for Florida lawns, as it’s very well-adapted to the region. It thrives in sunny and sandy conditions but can easily handle drought and flooding. Plus, Bahia has a deep root system that helps it resist pests and disease.
