Palmetto St Augustine Lawn Grass PlugsPalmetto 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.

Palmetto St Augustine Grass Adaptation

Developed in Florida, Palmetto St Augustine grass is a favorite in coastal and island areas and is rapidly being positioned as the landscaping standard, having proved itself repeatedly since 1994. Palmetto prefers heat but will handle cold better than other types of St. Augustine. A hardy performer in both full sun and partial shade, Palmetto offers an extremely dense root system and natural resistance to cinch bugs - qualities that allow it to fair well in drought conditions and to remain greener longer throughout the year. Whether you're looking for a grass to blanket your yard or you need a versatile option for commercial use, Palmetto St. Augustine is a prime contender.
