Centipede grass was introduced to the United States from Southeast Asia. Centipede is a slow-growing, low-maintenance, all-purpose type grass. It has fair to good shade tolerance and good drought tolerance. Maintenance of centipede grass is low compared to other grasses. Seed, plugs, sprigs or sod can establish centipede grass. Planting centipede as sod will produce an instant lawn, and is less susceptible to stress, making Centipede sod is a crowd favorite!
St. Augustine grass
Selected for its deep green color, St. Augustine cultivar has great shade, disease, and cold tolerance. St. Augustine grass is widely adapted to the warm, humid climate of Arkansas. An advantage of St. Augustine grass is that it has a relatively good shade tolerance. However, it does not remain green during drought conditions without supplemental irrigation. Other points to consider with this grass are that it can have pest problems (likely the well-known chinch bug) and poor wear tolerance.
Bermuda is a warm-season grass. Its root system is extensive and deep. It is best adapted to the hot climates and is perfect for Arkansas. It is a great grass for golf course fairways, sports complexes, and plain old home lawns and has a great recovery ability requiring very little maintenance.
Zoysia grass exhibits a dark green color and wide-bladed leaf. It performs well in the hot, humid environment of Arkansas and sandy, clay soil. It requires less maintenance than Bermuda and has good shade and cold tolerance.

Before purchasing your sod and turf, you will need to measure your space. To find the amount of square yards you need, measure the length and width of the area. Multiply the length x width (measuring in feet) then divide by 9 for square yards. (Length X Width) ÷ 9 = Square Yards.
