Palmetto St Augustine Grass Plugs
Palmetto St Augustine Lawn Grass Plugs
- In coastal regions, life is filled with sun, fun and salt air. While these elements can make for a great weekend, they are often too much for some grass varieties to take. With high heat, humidity and salt levels in the southeast and other coastal areas, it is often a challenge to produce lawns that are healthy, beautiful and resilient.

Palmetto St. Augustine grass is so versatile it overcomes these and other elements Mother Nature throws its way.
