What is SOD?

“In Agriculture, specifically Horticulture, sod is a patch of grass with soil beneath it, held together by its grassroots or another piece of thin material.”

Another name used for sod is “Turf”.

Sods are used by Landscapers for:

  • Lawns
  • Golf Courses
  • Sports Stadiums
 

Types of Recommended SOD Grass in McKinney, TX:

Following are some of the SOD Grass Types recommended in McKinney, TX:

  • Bermuda Grass
  • St. Augustine Grass
  • Zoysia Grass

Bermuda Grass:

Bermuda Grass is one of the most sun loving warm season lawn and pasture grasses. The most widespread types of Bermuda Grass planted in North Texas Lawns are:

  • Common Bermuda Grass
  • Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass

The 419 is a finer blade grass than the Common Bermuda Grass.

Benefits: Both grasses are tolerant of drought and traffic. They both require full sunlight for their growth and provide with a very good grass cover.

Drawbacks: The major disadvantage is its poor shade tolerance, growing only a few feet in a heavily shaded area. In slight shade, it will produce only a thin turf at best.

 

St. Augustine Grass:

In North Texas, the most widely grown variety of St. Augustine is “Raleigh St. Augustine.”

Raleigh St. Augustine is Medium Green in color, and is best grown in Heavier clay soils.

The grass, known for its lovely Blue-Green Hue, turns Brown in winters in areas that have a cold climate.

Benefits: St. Augustine Grass is very tolerant of salt and is grown along the coast for that reason. It is SAD Virus resistant. It competes well with weeds.

Drawbacks: Fungal diseases, including “Large Brown Patch” and “Gray Leaf Spot” can cause patches of St. Augustine Grass to die. Moreover, St. Augustine Grass holds up only to normal lawn traffic. It has relatively poor wear tolerance and won’t thrive in an area with repeated foot traffic.

 

Zoysia Grass:

 Zoysia Grass is best established from sod. It is a good grass for full sun and lightly shaded areas. It has similar maintenance requirements as St. Augustine Grass and is Slow Growing. It doesn’t need to be mowed or edged as often as other turf grasses.

Benefits: Zoysia Grass will maintain a better color in cool weather, if fertilized during the fall. It is also very water efficient, needing only about a half-inch of weekly rain to thrive.

Drawbacks: Vertical Growth of Zoysia Grass is really slow. Zoysia grass forms heavy thatch, which is a thick, brown or black layer of plant debris between the soil and the grass. If thatch is more than 3/4 inch thick, water, fertilizer and pesticides never reach the soil because they cannot penetrate the tough, dry layer. If Zoysia Grass grows roots in the dry thatch layer, the roots cannot receive water. Although Zoysia Grass tolerates drought, it turns brown and goes dormant without frequent watering during prolonged dry spells.

The City of McKinney in Collin County falls among some the best places to live in Texas. The high cost of living in this part of Texas is an indication of its flourishing economy. McKinney offers city living amid a dense suburban ambience. Despite an active economic pace, complemented by a significantly high number of working professionals.

McKinney is notable for its rich history that saw the city serve as the center of trade and commerce in Collin County for 125 years. In fact, history shows McKinney as the bread basket of flour, corn, cotton mills, cotton gins, a cotton compress and a cottonseed oil mill.  Local churches, schools and newspapers thrive in the city — and a historical opera house which dates back to 1880.

Despite a robust commerce, McKinney has managed to maintain an impressively low crime rate, making the city among one of the safest places to live and do business in North Texas.
