What Kind Of Lawn Is Best For South Carolina Weather?
There are many factors to consider in choosing a variety of grass for your lawn including sun, shade, water, and soil, but weather-wise, Clemson.edu recommends Bermuda, Centipede, or Zoysia grasses for our central South Carolina region, and states: “Northern-adapted grasses (e.g., fine fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, and ryegrass) will grow in areas of South Carolina only during fall, winter and early spring months as part of overseeding, and will not survive year-round except turfgrass tall fescue at higher elevations in the mountains or upper Piedmont regions.”
How Often Should I Have My Lawn Cut And Maintained?
Unfortunately, there is no single answer to that question. It depends on how fast your grass is growing and how tall that particular type of grass is at its healthiest, but a good rule of thumb to maintain the health of your lawn is to never cut more than one third of the grass height at one time. The turf experts at Affinity Landscaping are extremely knowledgeable about local grasses and turf types and how to keep them healthy but well-trimmed and maintained.
