Scotts ProVista is a newer release in the industry, and people often ask why they would want to use Scotts ProVista over other varieties. One big difference between this sod type with regards to herbicide tolerance seems like it will be more amiable than before; therefore if you've got an area that has experienced weed infestation (whether tropical signal grass or Bermuda), then definitely consider utilizing their products for keeping those pesky weeds out!
The thing we really love about these types? It has a very dark green color and is a dwarf variety, meaning it doesn't require as much mowing as other types of St. Augustine sod. Finally, it is tolerant of skipped mowing days, making it a convenient option for those who are DIYers.
Once you put the Scotts ProVista Sod in and get it established, you're basically going to establish it like you would any other St. Augustine type grass, you want to make sure your soil is moist before you put the sod down. You want to keep it moist.
You do not want to go in there and saturate it with four and a half hours of water every day you just want to keep it where it's happy. It's okay for it to stress a little bit because that will help all these roots, go down and start searching for water. And that's what helps it get established in your yard.
One of the issues with overwatering is you create a fungal problem. You start getting too wet around the crown of it and then it's much more susceptible to fungus. If you're putting it in shade, or you're putting it in during the warmer times of the year, it's a really good idea to come in within a week or so to have a topical fungicide just to protect it and keep anything from getting in there that could do your sod harm.
We don't ever want the sod to go without fertilizer so you can probably wait 20 days or so before you put your fertilizer down. Generally speaking, if you're coming from the farm, your plants will have plenty of fertilizer in them to get you going.
A couple of other neat features about it, the reason you don't have to mow as much is it is actually designed and created to stay at a lower height of growth. So you want to mow it in there somewhere around the two and a half to the three-inch range. This will help keep your lawn looking great while requiring less maintenance on your part.
You don't want to go in there and let this stuff get up five inches tall, and then it's just not good for and always remember trying to not mow more than a third of the leaf length anytime that you mow it. You got a weed problem. This is the one for you.
ProVista is a dark green, dense grass of the St. Augustine variety. Like Floratam, ProVista has wide, coarse blades that are comfortable to walk on. It also has a dark, rich green color that makes your lawn appear lush and healthy. ProVista, however, has been engineered to outperform Floratam in a few key areas. ProVista grass is highly weed-resistant, requires less mowing and fertilizer, and is more environmentally friendly.
The humid Florida climate is ideal for many grass varieties to thrive. St. Augustine varieties, like Evergreen and Floratam, do very well in the Florida climate, and ProVista is no different. ProVista thrives in full sun but also does well in moderate shade. Like Floratam, it is resistant to salt spray that is carried by coastal winds.
