is a warm season, creeping, perennial grass that grows well
on wet, poor soils where most others will not grow.
It is coarse bladed, makes a dense turf, can be
grown from seed, shallow rooted and therefore is not
drought tolerant. It is as cold tolerant as centipede and has
poor salt tolerance. It's shade tolerance is about
the same as Centipede (Definitely less than St. Augustine grass).*
|Carpetgrass is a native
grass to the interior Gulf states and similar tropical
climates. Weeds and Bermuda grass can be crowded out by its
thick sod. It is a good grass for erosion control and is a
low maintenance grass on low fertility soils and can thrive
if not mown without the addition of fertilizers.
Available in 5, 25 &
Carpetgrass is ideal for those areas when DAMP moist soil is present. It will
withstand higher traffic than many others in these conditions.
It generally will NOT tolerate much shade... so St. Augustine
may be a better choice in shady areas.
Establishment: Medium to fast depending upon the amount of
care that is given.
Adaptation: From the edge of Virginia and
across the southern states to the east side of Texas. Sandy damp
soils of moderate acidity but not salt tolerant.
