Different Grass Types that grow well in Florida
Bahia Grass Paspalum
Bahia grass was imported from South America over 70 years to the southern region of the
 United States. 
 The grass is light green in color and requires minimum maintenance, few pest problems and does well in sandy to clay soils. There are no postemergence herbicides for weeds in Bahia grass, which can be a real problem but can be avoided with frequent mowing.   Be careful of over watering and over fertilization. 
It does not tolerate lower temperatures well.
The grass does best in direct sunlight.
Cut frequently during summer months every 5-7 days to trim to 2 inches.

Different Grass Types that  grow well in Florida
 
Seashore paspalum grass— Paspalum vaginatum
Seashore paspalum should be planted when temperatures exceed 70 degrees and does very well in a salt warm season climate in sandy soil.  Gulf courses use this grass because of it's turf grass like qualities.  This grass grows from rhizomes or an underground root system that grows laterally and is best planted in sod or sprigs.  The grass does well near the ocean or in areas where the irrigation and/or water is high in salt content.
Seashore paspalum grass has a course blade with a medium colored green appearance and very aggressive growth system. 
The grass does better in direct sunlight but will tolerate some shade.
This grass requires medium amounts of fertilizer, water and needs to be mowed frequently and cut short in length to about 2 -  2 1/2 inches.
  Due to the grass thickness it is difficult to mow.  The grass does tolerate traffic well    and can recover quickly from moderate wear during spring and summer.
