St. Augustine Grass
Grass blades are dark green to green-blue and are flat and broad. St. Augustine turf is thick and carpet-like, a positive as it often crowds out potential weeds. The grass spreads quickly thanks to above-ground stolons, also known as runners, which help the turf remain thick and lush.
Bahiagrass is valued for outstanding drought and heat tolerance and an ability to thrive where many lawn grasses falter. Its use in lawns occurs in a very limited region of the southeastern United States. Within this area, Bahiagrass produces a relatively durable, low-growing, low-maintenance turf.
