A host of wonderful qualities make Palmetto St. Augustine the most demanded patented turfgrass in the world. Amongst others, it boasts a unique, smooth texture, special color, extreme tolerance and shade adaptability.
Due to its versatility, it can be found almost everywhere in the United States, even in the most extreme regions. It is very highly demanded and the fact that it is comfortable in both residential and commercial settings only adds to its appeal.
Customers really love the incredible shade tolerance of Palmetto St. Augustine. It will easily survive with just three hours of sun daily, which gives it the edge when compared to Zoysia. On the flip side, it cannot cope with extremely cold conditions as well. Ensure that you give this turfgrass at least ¾ inch of water every three days if you plant it on sandy soil.
