Widespread usage inland has
created the development for newer varieties and finally a seeded variety has developed.
Dwarf types have emerged and are still coarse but somewhat finer in texture and can be
mown closer to the ground. It is one of the most important grasses in the tropical and
sub- tropical regions. Being salt tolerant, heat loving, giving excellent ground coverage
and keeping its color longer than Bermuda grass in cooler temperatures makes it highly
desirable in the grassing industry. Although not as fine textured as other grasses it
performs well under the right conditions. When grown in areas of adaptation it has few
pests and under can require minimum maintenance (except water) it is a most suitable lawn.
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.
