The bermudagrasses (Cynodon spp.) are the most popular and durable turfgrasses used for lawns in Georgia. These are warm season grasses that grow best during the warm months of spring, summer, and fall. They grow vigorously during this time and become brown and dormant in winter. The bermudagrasses may be divided into two groups based of method of reproduction. One group, reproduced by vegetative parts only are referred to as "hybrid" bermudagrasses. The second group reproduces by seed or vegetative means and is called "common" bermudagrass. A subgroup of the common type is the "improved seeded types". All three groups are presented later.

Centipedegrass is a warm season (green in summer, brown or dormant in winter) turfgrass that is very popular in the southern half of Georgia. If properly maintained, it will grow well as far north as Atlanta and Athens. It is more prone to winter injury if grown farther north but can grow in north Georgia if properly managed. The popularity of centipedegrass is related to its tolerance of low soil fertility, which results in slower growth and less frequent mowing than other lawn grasses. Although there are some improved varieties, the most widely used in Georgia is a common type.

Centipede is a creeping grass (above ground runners or stolons) that has leaves wider than most bermudagrasses and zoysiagrasses, but narrower than St. Augustinegrass. It grows well in full sun and is more shade tolerant than bermuda but generally less shade tolerant than zoysia and St. Augustine. It normally needs more frequent irrigation than bermuda but less than zoysiagrass, particularly when grown on hard, compact soils.
