Warm Season Zone
If you live in the South, you most likely have a warm season lawn. Common warm season grass types include Bahiagrass, Bermuda, Buffalograss, Carpetgrass, Centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, Zoysiagrass, or a blend of these various grass types. Warm season grasses thrive where the temperatures stay around 85 to 90 degrees during most of the growing season. See the map below to see where warm season grasses are.
It is important to keep up with proper maintenance to have your lawn continue looking its best. Take out the guess work by following the warm season grass lawn care calendar provided below. Each step is designed to promote a thick and healthy lawn, and to counteract anything thrown your lawn’s way, such as stress, disease, grubs, and more. The steps and timing laid out in the calendar should be used as a guide and depending on your specific conditions from year to year and your own unique lawn’s needs, the steps and timing can be modified or altered.
The states that fall between the cool and warm season zones are in the "transition zone". This is where having a blend of both warm and cool season grasses is common. We recommend those who live in this zone to follow both the warm and cool season lawn care calendars. You can view the cool season lawn care calendar here (link to cool season calendar).
