Carpet Grass Seed For Pasture

Axonopus compressus

Carpet grass is a very popular pasture grass for areas where no other grass will grow. These areas are coastal areas in the lower Southern US, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and anywhere that acidic, wet, poor fertility soil exists. While it is not suitable for hay production and it is not salt tolerant, carpet grass is a long lived perennial and provides adequate grazing for about 9 months of the year except in South Florida where it will stay green year round. Carpetgrass can withstand close grazing (2 to 3 inches) and is fairly easy to establish. It is also good at overpowering and choking out weeds with its rapid spreading ability. Carpetgrass forms a good thick "carpet" and is used for lawns, aviation fields, roadsides, commercial lawns and on golf courses in the South. While there are other grasses that are more desirable for forage and hay production, carpet grass is useful because it thrives on land where no other grass will grow.

Another use for carpet grass is as a cover crop to control weeds and prevent soil erosion. Carpet grass can be planted with Dallisgrass, Bahia, Centipede, St. Augustine and Ryegrass... along with Clovers and Lespedeza even though it will eventually crowd these crops out.

Establishing Carpet Grass From Seed

Carpetgrass grows on a range of soil types and is particularly well adapted to sandy soils with a high water table, where it outcompetes other grasses as soil fertility declines. This grass occurs and will grow well in tropical and subtropical areas. Carpetgrass is a small seeded grass and requires a loose, smooth and firm seedbed.
