St Augustine Turfgrass Sod

St Augustine Turfgrass Sod

St Augustine turfgrass sod is a warm-season grass that, like Bermuda grass, thrives in high temperatures. This makes it an ideal turfgrass sod for the hot summers in the Triad areas such as Greensboro and Winston-Salem. St Augustine also grows well in cooler coastal climates. This species of grass is called “St Augustine” in the United States and often referred to as “carpet grass” in the Southern United States. This grass has a course texture that roots at the nodes. St Augustine sod works best in areas in fertile soil with good drainage. This grass is used mostly for lawns as it does not tolerate heavy foot traffic like some of the other sods. In inland areas such as the Triad, St Augustine does require more maintenance such as mowing, watering and fertilizer. Thatching is also a common issue for this grass, so it may need to be dethatched. This grass does have a beautiful dark green look when it is properly cared for.
