Grass lawns

Warm Season grass types are planted throughout the South from an area west of Texas to as far north as Tennessee and North Carolina.

Warm season grass is named so because the grass's active growth period is during the warm seasons or spring and summer.

Listed in the chart below are the basic qualities about each grass. For more information about each grass visit the web site for that particular grass by clicking on the links provided to our lawn, pasture and sports turf informational websites. Or visit our online grass seed and grass plug store Seedland.com.
