USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map
Let's start at the beginning. Here in Coastal NC and SC, we can pretty much think of ourselves in a hardiness zone 7 or zone 8... mostly, zone 8. (See these North Carolina and South Carolina plant hardiness zone maps from the USDA.) Sod is categorized under two main types: warm season and cool season. For our zone, the warm season grasses thrive best. Bermuda, St Augustine, Centipede, and Zoysia are the four most popular varieties of warm season turfgrass (sod). SB Turf, Inc. has top quality warm season grass for sale in coastal North and South Carolina. In fact, these are the only types of sod we sell. When winter gets to our area, we do overseed our 419 Bermuda with rye (which is a cool season type of grass), so if you buy our 419 Bermuda sod from around October through March, chances are, it will be overseeded with annual rye.

How do I know which sod is best for my specific yard, though? Well, that, my friends, is an entire other blog post!
Suffice it to say that if you live in plant hardiness zone 7 or zone 8 of North or Carolina, you can narrow your grass decision down to 4 kinds. Again, these are:
  • 419 Bermuda
  • St. Augustine
  • Centipede
  • Zoysia
