Homeowners and businesses across the South like St. Augustine Palmetto grass. It has become a standard in many communities because it does well in full sun and partial shade. It also tolerates cold better than other varieties, and … it resists cinch bugs.
Palmetto provides a dense ground cover, and gives you a mature-looking lawn shortly after installing. It is a favorite of homeowners because it is easy to control at edges and borders. It provides a thick turf, and hides weeds well. It does, however, require a lot of moisture, and thus is well-suited for planting in rolls or as cut sod for lawns in south Louisiana.
