Soil, Climate And Fertility Requirements
Seville St Augustine grass is considered one of the most shade tolerant turf grass among the St Augustine grasses. It can tolerate wide pH ranges, from the acidic soils often found inland to the high pH soils of the coastal areas. Because Seville can tolerate and persist in areas within a lawn with only 6 to 7 hours of sunlight, it is considered a favorite choice among landscapers for lawns with moderate shade.
- Perform a soil analysis for best results. St. Augustine grows quite well with a starter fertilizer or organic compost added into the soil at the time of planting and
fertilization monthly until fully established. Newly planted grass needs more phosphorous than nitrogen to begin with. In fact it is recommended to take it easy on the Nitrogen when
growing St. Augustine grass.
Generally Seville requires 3-4 fertilizer applications/year - spring, summer and fall. Make routine observations and fertilize according to what the landscape indicates. Understand what
and how much fertilizer you are applying. Avoid disease and insect inducing growth flushes by reducing Nitrogen rates. Improve color and limit growth surges, especially in summer, by
utilizing Iron sources. Higher Nitrogen rates should only be applied in the spring, for injury recovery, or for planned “peaking” of Seville. Apply balanced, slow-release fertilizers with
lower rates of Nitrogen in the summer and fall. Recommended fertilizers are balanced, time release fertilizers, such as a 16-04-08, for most uses. Use products with more iron to improve
color. Consult with your local retailer, landscape professional or county extension office for specific recommendations.
- St. Augustine grass will not survive in dry inland areas without supplemental irrigation. As a general rule, Sevilleshould receive 3/4 - 1" of water once a week from
irrigation or rainfall. Remember to water deep -- to a depth of 3 inches -- deeper watering makes for deeper roots. So water less and water deeply. Water requirements would also be
determined by your type of soil with heavier soils requiring less water than sandy soils. St Augustine will not grow in "boggy" or wet soils. Once it is fully developed in areas of
consistent rainfall it grows rather well on its own, but further inland and in drought conditions it will have to be watered and fertilized more to maintain a lush stand. St. Augustine
grass will not survive in dry inland areas without supplemental irrigation.
