St Augustine seed isn't available so that's a big factor. Zoysia takes to long to establish. Bermuda is very common in the south, just not in Florida where they love st Augustine also a lot of Bermuda lawns are hybrid turf which is sterile so no seed. Common Bermuda is fairly easy to establish and is commonly used on golf course fairways and medium level home lawns.
