There are several breeds and varieties of grasses in North Texas. Below are six of the most common types of grasses that we plant.
Zoysias: The most shade tolerant grass on the market – two hour minimum. They also thrive in full sun, particularly the Emerald. Zoysia is the more expensive breed on the market. This is because it takes longer to grow and must sit on the farms longer, but it is well worth the cost.
St. Augustine: Enjoys the shade, but still needs three to four hours to thrive. Palmetto is the more shade tolerant of the two, and is the most sold patented grass in the world.

Bermuda: Very sun tolerant, does not do well in the shade and requires less water than St. Augustine to survive the Texas heat. Celebration variety is the newest entrant on the market and provides a slightly greener blade that handles shade better than its counterpart.
