This was St. Augustine sod used on these steps. Zoysia also works very well on similar applications if you have the proper sunlight.

With different light exposures you will always be challenged to grow similar matching plants. Azaleas may get "burned" by the hot sun in the unfiltered situation but they sound appropriate on the part sun side. G.G. Gerbing is a white azalea that likes our climate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to How to Plant a New Lawn From Sod
Additional sod tips:• Always inquire about delivery charges when ordering your sod.• After laying or rolling your sod, you can opt to roll it with a sod roller — a water-filled drum that you roll over the sod so the roots make good contact with the soil. Your sod can still get established without it, but it may take a little longer.• For the first two to three weeks, until your new sod has had a chance to establish a good root structure, avoid walking on it.• For a week or two after that, avoid very heavy activity, such as heavy foot traffic, concentrated activities and dog traffic.• Be sure to gather more specific information and recommendations about sod care in your area and for the particular type of grass sod you'll be laying, as well as more precise timelines on laying your sod.Looking for less grass?
