For the Love of Sod

Posted by:

Looking for a fast way to give your yard a pick-me-up?  Fresh new sod!  Bulldawgs Lawn Care is the sodding expert in the Augusta area.  We’ll help you determine what type of sod will work best for you.  Need your lawn resodded, but not sure which type of sod grass to choose?  Here are some of our most popular picks:

Bermuda grass is a very popular choice for sod.  It stands up well in high traffic, so if you have pets (like dogs) and/or children playing the yard frequently, this is a great option.  (Bermuda is usually used on baseball fields.)  Bermuda also does well with full sun.  Keep in mind, Bermuda grass needs to be fertilized more often.  It also grows quickly, so it has to be cut more often as well.  But it’s an excellent choice.  Bulldawgs Total Lawn Care owner Dustin Van House personally chose Tifway Bermuda 419 sod for his own lawn.

Another great sod choice?  Zoysia.  Zoysia is a dense, thick, low growing turf.  It’s versatile in that it works well in both full sun and shade.  One of the nicest things about Zoysia is the texture:  it has fine blades, yet the grass is so thick it feels like carpet.  Another benefit to choosing Zoysia:  it doesn’t have to be cut as frequently.  Emerald Zoysia and Myers Zoysia are popular varieties.

Centipede is also a popular pick.  This thicker blade grass works well in part shade and full sun.  The benefits of centipede sod?  It spreads rapidly for fast coverage, and is drought tolerant.

Is your yard lacking a lot of sun?  You can still have gorgeous lawn with St. Augustine.  Of all the popular sod choices, St. Augustine is the most shade tolerant, and it also spreads rapidly.

And if you don’t already have a sprinkler system installed, don’t worry – we can handle that too.  Kick off spring with a beautiful new lawn, with fresh sod from Bulldawgs Total Lawn Care!
