Best Grasses for Arizona Lawns
There are many Arizona sod varieties to choose from when it comes to picking out the best grass for your Arizona lawn. As one of Arizona’s premier sod farm producers, we went ahead and compiled a list of top features of residential Arizona sod varieties to help you choose which sod is best for your lawn. Keep in mind all of these are great choices for the Arizona climate, which one is best for your lifestyle.
TifGrand is the newest Arizona sod variety to hit the market and is an excellent choice for those Arizona grassy lawns that have a lot of shade coverage. TifGrand is specifically designed to grow in shaded areas (4+ hours of sun).
Midiron is the best grass for Arizona lawns when it comes to transitioning in the winter. It is known to recover quickly from over-seeding which is great if you love having a lush lawn in the winter. If you enjoy entertaining outside during Arizona’s mild winter or refreshing spring than Midiron just might be the Arizona sod variety for you. It handles high traffic areas well, is easy to maintain and is both heat and drought tolerant.
Palmetto St. Augustine is the second best shade tolerant grass for Arizona lawns. This Arizona sod variety is one of our top choices for lawns with shade coverage. People are attracted to this variety not only for it’s shade tolerance, but also for it’s unique texture. The Palmetto St. Augustine is a lighter colored Arizona sod variety with a wider blade. This is a great choice of sod for your Phoenix area residence if you have shade coverage on your lawn, and kids that like to play in the grass.
Any of these are great grasses for Arizona lawns. When selecting your sod variety, consider your lawn surroundings, your lifestyle (kids or pets) and how often you want to mow it and how many hours you want to spend maintaining it. Remember that these are just a few of the Arizona sod varieties that Evergreen Turf offers, if you need help selecting a sod variety for your life and home use our easy “Lawn Selector Tool.”
