Zoysia grass 
Flexible. Loves sun and shade. Slow growing. Tolerates traffic. Produces lush carpet. El Toro, Empire, Jamur, and Palisades most drought-resistant.

Bermuda grass
Loves the sun, responds well to watering, good traffic tolerance, but needs lots of mowing. Many varieties are drought-tolerant. Best in sub-tropical southern zones.

Floratam is most drought-tolerant variety but generally it prefers dappled shade. Got trees? Ask your local municipality if it's giving them away.
