From the growers of MARATHON SOD, Southland St. Augustine is dark green in color with a low, creeping growth habit. Southland St. Augustine has a coarse texture and a spongy feel when walked upon. Southland St. Augustine is highly resistant to damage from foot traffic, disease and insects. Southland St. Augustine tolerates shade better than any other standard cool or warm season sod variety.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
Southland St. Augustine is a hybrid St. Augustine grown exclusively by Southland Sod. Southland St. Augustine matches a deep green color with a medium-coarse textured turf . A real problem solver in both sun and shade, it forms a low-growing, aggressive, tight-knit turf.

RECOMMENDED USES:
Southland St. Augustine is recommended for residential, commercial and industrial landscape installations where shade and or heavy wear are issues.

COMPOSITION:
Southland St. Augustine is grown from high-quality stolons which are
propagated in a controlled cultural environment. This results in healthy sod which is virtually free of weeds, disease and insect infestations.

MEASUREMENTS:
Southland St. Augustine is harvested by machine to a uniform thickness of 5/8", plus or minus 1/4", plus top growth. Southland St. Augustine measures contains 2.5 sq ft square feet of sod.

SHIPPING STANDARDS:
Prior to harvesting, Southland St. Augustine is mowed uniformly to a height of between 1 to 1 1/2 inches for shipment. It is folded with the soil facing out to protect the grass from damage, and the sod is stacked on pallets. Each pallet contains approximately 500 square feet of sod. Southland St. Augustine is shipped sufficiently dry for transportation and handling, yet moist enough to facilitate installation. It should be installed immediately after delivery.

TEMPERATURE TOLERANCE:
Southland St. Augustine thrives in heat, and has no problem adjusting to temperatures up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. It normally goes dormant during the cool seasons of the year, usually from December through February.

WEAR RESISTANCE:
Southland St. Augustine is fairly wear resistant because of its spongy resilience and coarse texture. However, it is not recommended for high traffic conditions.

SHADE TOLERANCE:
Southland St. Augustine has more shade tolerance than any sod variety on the market including Fescues, Bluegrasses, Dichondra and Hybrid Bermudas.

WATERING:
Newly planted Southland St. Augustine should be watered daily and soaked thoroughly for the first 7- 10 days to avoid drying the sod out, and to enable the root system to penetrate the soil. Once the sod has been established, watering frequency should be reduced. Due to varying soil and local climate conditions, it is difficult to recommend a definite watering schedule. However, a deep soaking, 1-2 times per week, is adequate in most weather situations. During periods of consistently high temperatures, additional watering may be required.

MOWING:
Southland St. Augustine should be mowed within two weeks of installation.
Thereafter, a weekly mowing with a reel bladed mower and grass
catcher attachment is recommended. It should be mowed at 1"- 1 1/2". In shade situations, 1 1/2" is recommended. Avoid scalping.
