Bahia lawns
Maintenance Suggestions

Bahia is a great grass for year-round low maintenance requirements during normal seasons of rainfall.  Its most intensive maintenance practice is its need for weekly (5-7 days) mowing intervals during the growing season.

Mowing Bahia

Best mowing height is 2-3 inches; Use a frequent mowing schedule to keep the lawn looking their best and fertilize as needed.  --- Goes dormant and turns brown/tannish color in winter after frost.  May be over seeded with ryegrass for year round green color.  The annual growing season is early May -  late August.

Watering: Bahia is somewhat drought resistant, but requires watering on a regular basis to get the lawn established especially in the seedling stage and also to promote better germination. Argentine requires more water than Pensacola. Irrigation systems may be required in drought prone areas and during dry seasons in the rainy areas.  Bahiagrass will go dormant and turn brown during drought situations but survives long period of drought very well.  It also responds quickly to rainfall after droughts, greening up fast.

Diseases & Pests: Bahia has only a few disease problems, none of which are severe and can usually be managed through correct fertilization practices.  Pests are minor with the exception of Mole Crickets.

Yearly Calendar for Bahiagrass Care and Culture
Bahiagrass forms a coarse-textured, open turf with an upright growth habit which gives a lawn a sparse, open appearance. Bahiagrass avoids drought damage by dropping its leaves, forming extensive rooting depth and undergoing dormancy (browning). If the homeowner does not have an irrigation system or prefers a low-maintenance utility turf area, bahiagrass is a good choice for a lawn.

ADVANTAGES
Bahiagrass can be grown from seed which is abundant and relatively inexpensive. Once established, these grasses develop an extensive root system which makes them one of the most drought tolerant lawn grasses. Bahiagrass produces a very durable sod which is able to withstand moderate traffic. In addition, Bahiagrass has fewer pest problems than any other Florida lawn grass, although mole cricket can severely damage it.

Bahiagrass (Paspalum Notatum) is a warm-season perennial grass that is grown on over one million acres in Mississippi. Bahiagrass is ideally adapted to the droughty, sandy soils of the lower Coastal Plain.

It is low-growing and sod-forming, spreading by short stolons, and also from seed. Leaves are rather short and broad. It is especially well adapted to droughty, sandy soils. It is not winter hardy so is adapted to the lower Southeastern Coastal Plain, including all of Florida. It is well suited for pastures and for lawns, especially on sandy soils of low fertility. Propagation is by seed.
