Bahia sod is a very common grass in Florida. It is popular with homeowners because it is very drought tolerant and does not require an intensive amount of care.
Lawns can be maintained by applying herbicide and fertilizer twice a year. (spring and fall). Water only as needed and mow to 3 or 4 inches high every 7 to 10 days, during the growing season. Bahia is resistant to most worms. It will grow in a wide variety of soils. It does best in full sun but will grow as long as it receives full sun at some point during the day. Bahia my go into a brownish dormant stage during periods of drought or during the winter, but watering and warmer temperatures will bring it back to its normal green, healthy appearance. Bahia may be over seeded in the winter to maintain a lush green appearance.
