SOD

OK, you’re tired of the lawn that you have and all of its issues. In Florida we face many challenges to have a nice looking landscape but we have good news for you! There are many more options and sod varieties to choose from these days. While no sod is perfect, we will work with you to find a variety that will be the best for your yard and conditions. We offer you a number of alternatives from the traditional grasses used in a Florida landscape, Empire Zoysia being our customers favorite!

Floratam™ is a popular choice for homes in Florida for its light requirements and love of warmer climates, not to mention its attractiveness in the landscape.

A popular choice in Florida, Floratam™ blankets many of the state’s home lawns. Floratam™ is a coarse, vigorous variety of St. Augustine grass that thrives in warmer climates, requiring more than 6 hours of daily sunlight. Perfect for a sunny lawn, Floratam™ is also the most drought tolerant St. Augustine variety on the market.

Floratam™ is not as cold tolerant as other St. Augustine grasses, so preconditioning with a winterizer fertilizer could increase this grass’s beauty during the spring and summer months. Although this is a courser variety, when mowed as a lawn the coarseness is reduced. With a moderate tolerance to wear, Floratam™ is the perfect choice for your home lawn, especially if you are positioned in a warm climate with lots of sunshine. If this sounds like your home, you will be impressed with this variety’s color, uniformity and overall attractive appearance.

Seville™ is a blue-green semi dwarf variety with excellent horizontal compact growth, and great color retention.

Seville™ has a beautiful rich, dark-green color and a shorter, narrower leaf blade that give it a distinctive plush appearance. This semi-dwarf variety has excellent horizontal compact growth, which requires less mowing than other sod types. Seville™ also has superior cold tolerance, which means less hassle in the winter months and better color retention, with quicker recovery. Along with surviving the cold with less worry of damage, Seville™ is very tolerant to shade, but still manages to thrive in areas with a lot of sunshine. Seville™ will bring your lawn years of color!
