Palmetto St Augustine Lawn Grass Plugs - In
coastal regions, life is filled with
sun, fun and salt air. While these
elements can make for a great weekend,
they are often too much for some grass
varieties to take. With high heat,
humidity and salt levels in the
southeast and other coastal areas, it is
often a challenge to produce lawns that
are healthy, beautiful and resilient.
Because of the abundance of large oak,
willow and other shade trees, finding a
grass variety that thrives in sun and
tolerates moderate shade is yet another
problem. Palmetto St. Augustine is so
versatile it overcomes these and other
elements Mother Nature throws its way.
With a striking medium emerald-green
color and a softer texture than other
St. Augustine varieties, Palmetto gives
good fall color retention. Come spring,
you'll find Palmetto ready to green up
quickly after its winter rest.
