SEVILLE St. Augustine Grass is a semidwarf, fine-leaved variety with a dark green color and low growth habit. It is susceptible to chinch bug and webworm damage. Seville performs well in both shade and full sun; however, it is cold sensitive. Being a a semidwarf variety, Seville’s maintenance is different than that of taller-growing varieties.
Central Florida homeowners always ask which type of fertilizer they should use and when is the best time to put it down. While working on the golf courses, we would fertilize our greens early in the mornings every other week right after we mowed them. Luckily for homeowners, you don't have to fertilize your lawn every other week.
According to Sod Solutions, the best fertilizer to use in the spring is a 15-0-15 and in the fall, a fertilizer with an 8-0-16. What do these numbers mean? The numbers are Nitrogen – Phosphorus – Potassium. These are generic recommendations that are meant to work for a wide area, from California to Florida. Since the health of the grass starts with the soil, we recommend getting your soil tested every couple of years to know if you need any amendments.
