I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.
St. Augustine should do well in your area. Centipede is another good option. I suggest you contact your local County Extension Office for some advice and to have a soil test done to see what the nutrient content is. The following web pages have great info on growing a lawn in Florida and can provide more help than I can give in an e-mail reply:
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
