When purchasing a new lawn the first question you need to consider is how much shade does the area get?

Most turf species will survive in full sun however, if the area receives more than 2-3 hours shade then you will need to stay away from a couch lawn and choose more shade tolerant lawns such as Sir Walter Buffalo Grass and Zoysia.

Sir Walter Turf

Sir Walter Buffalo Grass is one of the most shade tolerant varieties. Sir Walter Buffalo has a soft broad leaf and only requires 2-3 hours full sun or longer periods of filtered sun to survive. Sir Walter is ideal for large open areas in full sun as well as shaded areas, along fence lines, sides of houses and under trees. learn more

Zoysia Grass

Zoysia Grass has a medium sized leaf and requires more sunlight than the Sir Walter to survive however it can tolerate up to 4-5 hours shade per day. If the area receives more than 5 hours shade then you will need to consider a buffalo lawn, such as Sir Walter. Zoysia is ideal in full sun areas and in semi-shaded conditions. learn more
