Roll of New Sod Being Installed

If you are installing a new lawn, sod is an excellent solution. Unlike planting seed, you do not need to wait several weeks or months to enjoy the beauty of a new lawn. Sod comes in a variety of grass types in the Atlanta area, and warm-season grasses are the best option. The three most common grass types in our area are Bermuda, zoysia and fescue. At Green Landscape Supply, we offer all three in our sod products and can provide convenient sod delivery. To choose the best sod product for your new lawn, here are the main differences in our sod products.

Bermuda Sod

You will see Bermuda grass at many golf courses and parks in Atlanta due to its hearty nature. It thrives in direct sun and is drought-tolerant, which can help it withstand the hot summers. Bermuda grass is great for heavy foot traffic, and it can perform well in the clay soil. You can improve the health of your grass by adding sand for better drainage. If you have shady areas in your lawn, Bermuda sod may not be the best choice.

Zoysia Sod

Zoysia is also a warm-season grass that is drought-resistant and performs well in the Georgia climate. Like Bermuda, it can withstand the hot summers and fairs well under moderate foot traffic. Zoysia is very dense and is excellent for weed control. It is much more versatile than Bermuda, as it can thrive in direct sun and partially shaded areas, making it wonderful for residential lawns and commercial applications. Zoysia is also slow-growing, so it requires mowing less frequently.


For those who want a green lawn year-round, fescue does not go dormant in the winter. You can enjoy a beautiful lawn all year, but this means it will also need year-round maintenance. Fescue sod will do well in areas with partial sun and soil with adequate drainage. While it does not have the natural drought-resistance and fortitude of zoysia and Bermuda, it can thrive if given the right environment and maintenance.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

    The only place I will go from now on! John was very kind and so helpful! Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future. They have a massive selection and their customer service is outstanding.
