What is St Augustine grass?

Category: Lawn & Garden


St. Augustine grass is characterized by its oversized flat stems and wide leaves. It is typically the preferred grass planted in Southern states such as Florida, Texas, Louisiana, and other states located along the Gulf Coast. It is the perfect grass for warmer, tropical climates where excessive cold is limited and will often be planted using sod. The down side to St Augustine grass is that it tends to need more water than other grass species and will be fairly dense, making it harder to maintain.
