Jul 6, 2012 | Turfgrass Products

Many people use sod to beautify their home lawns, but it can also be used to keep a commercial property looking nice and fresh.  Depending on what kind of commercial property you have, you should use different types of sod.  It is important to consider many different things when deciding which turf grass is right for you, including how much sun the area will get and how much traffic the grass will see.  There are three types of sod that are the most popular for commercial applications: Empire Turf Zoysia, Bahia, and Bermudagrass.

Empire Turf Zoysia grass is popular not only for , as it is soft to the touch with its fine, tight blade growth, and can accommodate a variety of activities without showing too much wear and tear.  The latter is one of the major reasons it is used in commercial applications, like in golf courses, theme parks, office complexes, and master planned communities.  Bahia grass is a popular all-purpose grass because it is aggressive and low maintenance once it has been established.  It also does well in a variety of conditions, including drought weather and in infertile or sandy soil.  Bermudagrass is known as a very rugged grass, as it has tough runners and rhizomes, and deep roots to provide strength and excellent wearability.  It is popular for golf courses and other types of sports applications due to its strength and wearability as well.
