Harmony Turfgrass Varieties
Harmony turfgrass varieties are carefully cultivated by certified sod growers throughout the nation. Many of our growers represent multi-generational farms with years of agricultural expertise and industry knowledge. What's more, each variety of Harmony turfgrass (eg Home, Shade and Play) is custom matched based on the regional climate and type of usage. The grass varieties for this state are listed below.
Home Fescue’s fine grass blades grow upright, creating a uniform blanket of rich deep green turf. It grows rapidly, is relatively shade tolerant, and handles cold and hot weather well. It can even go dormant in the summer if there’s no water available. Another great thing about Home Fescue is that it doesn’t develop thatch, so you cross off dethatching from your home maintenance list. Home Fescue’s moderate hardiness makes it play-resistant, but avoid exposing it to severe injuries.
Home Centipede is a favorite among those craving a low-maintenance lawn. Its coarse leaves form a dense, medium-to-dark green turf that withstands poor soil and heat. If you crave more free time to chill out in the lounge chair with a cold beverage, slow-growing Home Centipede may be right for you. This all-purpose turf may only need to be mowed every 10 to 14 days. Of course, its slow growth rate also means that it may not recover from damage as quickly as other turf varieties.
Home Zoysia is exceptionally hardy and tolerates high temperatures well. Its light-to-medium green leaves vary from fine to coarse. With deep watering, Home Zoysia will form a lawn that is so dense that it is resistant to weeds. If you’d rather host more outdoor BBQs than spend a lot of time mowing and edging, you may prefer this slower growing turf variety. Home Zoysia withstands heavy traffic, and is known for having the best wear resistance of any turf.
Play Bermuda has soft, yet resilient deep-green leaves. It forms a dense low-growing lawn that is exceptionally tolerant to traffic. Because it recovers quickly, it is considered an ideal turf for active families with children and pets. Extremely heat- and drought-tolerant, Play Bermuda thrives on sunshine. It does not do as well in shady areas. Play Bermuda is relatively slow growing and has minimal thatch build up, so you might never need to have it dethatched.
Shade St. Augustine
Shade St. Augustine is a fast-growing, robust turf that quickly forms a light-to-medium green lawn. Its coarse leaves have a creeping growing pattern, spreading side-to-side. Shade St. Augustine is known as a reliable lawn. It thrives in heat and withstands winter temperatures. It’s also resistant to a typical family’s outdoor activities. You’ll have plenty of time for backyard fun, because Shade St. Augustine requires only low-to-moderate maintenance.
