St. Augustine is warm season, perennial grass that is a widely used. A native grass of tropical origin that extends from water marshes (salty & fresh), lagoon fringes, and sandy beach ridges.

Saint Augustine lawns are a popular wide bladed (coarse) lawn planted throughout many areas of the Southeastern USA. This grass is found in Mexico, Australia, and in tropical parts of Africa. It is a warm season grass that does not handle cold weather very well. The majority of this grass is planted vegetatively (PLUGS, SOD) as seeds are not usually available commercially each season due to production difficulties.

Characteristics: Coarse, wide bladed, dense dark green

This is one of the oldest coastal grasses and in its different varieties and strains it has been found from the Carolinas to Australia and New Zealand.

And as long as moisture and soil requirements are met it makes for beautiful lawns. It is a thick bladed grass and with good maintenance can produce a thick, beautiful dark green lawn and requires full sun to moderate shade.

Adaptation: Areas of moist, semi-fertile soils, high temperatures, coastal and bordering areas, sun and minimal shade.

Saint Augustine

St. Augustine originated from the gulf coastal areas, Caribbean Islands and parts of Africa. And has spread nearly every where along especially coastal areas. In the US being a native of the Gulf States it was originally used in pasturage and lawns along the coast. As man moved inward through the states the grass was able to spread as more and more land was cleared for livestock. The areas at that time held more humidity and the land was wetter with the swamps, creeks, rivers, lakes and ponds that dotted the landscape. The damper richer soils were able to grow ST. AUG. more easily. Now due to irrigation and land treatments it is in much more demand as a lawn coverage than pasture grass.

St. Augustine grass has been grown only from vegetative propagation (sod, plugs) means until recently. Several companies are currently working on various seeded varieties, though to date the seed production is not consistent. Propagation is usually accomplished through sod or plugs. This grass is rarely sprigged for home lawn establishment, but this method is used on nursery farms to grow sod and can be used for home lawns.

St. Augustine grows quite well with a starter fertilizer added into the soil at the time of planting and fertilization monthly until fully established. Plenty of water on well draining soils with seasonal rains or watering systems for full establishment. Once it is fully developed in areas of consistent rainfall it grows rather well on its own, but further inland and in drought conditions it will have to be watered and fertilized to maintain a lush stand.
