Grass - PASPALUM GRASS
Paspalum vaginatum SeaIsle 1
Warm season turfgrass Sun Mowing height 1/8 – 2 inches. Solid sod or sprigs
HABIT: Rich dark-green warm season, medium-textured grass that grows in a wide range of soils but does best in sandy soils. It has excellent resistance to drought and wear and is very salt tolerant.
CULTURE: Can tolerate most alternate water sources such as waste water, effluent, ocean water, gray water and brackish water. Requires low levels of fertilization, irrigation and pest management.
USES: Excellent choice for fairways, tees, roughs, commercial landscaping, athletic fields and reclamation projects.
PROBLEMS: Homeowners can use but will need to mow more often and be aware of possible fungal problems.
NOTES: SeaIsle 2000 has a blue-green cast and can be mowed even lower (1/8”). This is the grass used on the field at the Astro’s ball park. I can’t remember the corporate sponsor name.
