Rembert, SC (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- SC Sod Farm, Modern Turf, now announces Palmetto St. Augustine Sod - the ultimate sod for your South Carolina climate. As a professional sod farm, these experts know which type of turf is suitable for your climate and your usage needs. Palmetto St. Augustine sod grows well in a variety of climates and is more cold hardy than some other warm season grasses.
Palmetto St. Augustine sod grows best with sunshine, but as long as it receives at least four hours a day of direct sunlight, it is a shade tolerant grass which produces a beautiful emerald green blade. Palmetto St. Augustine maintains its green color longer and better than any other variety of St. Augustine grass, making it a preferred variety for many homeowners. It provides excellent coverage for your residential and commercial needs. Palmetto St. Augustine sod can even be laid during winter months, as long as you water it weekly. This versatility makes St. Augustine sod an excellent choice year round.
Palmetto St. Augustine is a drought hardy turf grass as well. Like all grasses, this variety will wilt without water, but it is surprisingly drought tolerant and will recover quickly when watered. In test fields, this St. Augustine sod variety has endured droughts as long as two months long. St. Augustine sod has a massive root system, giving it superior drought tolerance once it is established.
Modern Turf recommends Palmetto St. Augustine sod to discriminating home and business owners who are looking for a richly colored, shade tolerant, cold hardy grass for their property in the southern US. These sod experts recommend maintaining Palmetto St. Augustine sod at a height of 2 -2 3Â½ inches for best performance. Mowning height fluctuations are a direct reflection of available sunlight. The shadier the environment, the higher any grass should be maintained. Palmetto should be mowed every 7 to 10 days.
