What you need to know about Floratam St. Augustine sod

Floratam is a dark colored green grass that was developed in the 1970s as a partnership between agricultural experiments in Florida and Texas, hence FLOR TAM. Floratam is part of the St. Augustine lineage of grass. Everglades partners with local sod farmers that take environmental protection and environmentally sustainable farming seriously. Everglades has its foundations built on commercial agriculture and we understand the value of supporting local farmers and environmentally friendly farming practices. Floratam is a very popular choice for residential and commercial applications where the customer prefers an even green lawn that is capable of resisting brown patch, a small circle of dead grass caused by chinch bugs.

Slightly acidic soil is ideal for Floratam’s root system. The acidity helps its root absorb nutrients and water, diluted citrus juice is an organic way of lowering your lawns ph level. Its growth is first horizontally first by throwing its purple and red stem called its stolon across your yard closing any damage caused by foot traffic or equipment before it will begin to grow deeper into the soil. This property makes it resistant to traffic damage, but its soft blades do not hold up well to foot traffic. It is not recommended to use Floratam in areas with heavy traffic. Salt carried by coastal winds is often deadly to grass but Floratam does resist salt spray well. Floratam does not produce seeds that can germinate, therefore if there are gaps that are too large for stolons to cross additional pieces of sod may be necessary.

This grass as a dark green color and is coarsely textured with soft blades that are comfortable to walk on. Floratam is a sun and heat loving grass that will grow aggressively during the summer if properly watered. Over the cooler seasons, fall and winter, this grass will slow its growth and may even go dormant, but it will sprout back up in spring and start growing very quickly. In preparations for the winter months regular watering and a fertilization is recommended to help Floratam keep its color. During the summer, weekly mowing is recommended because of its aggressive growth, aiming to keep the height of the grass between three to four inches. Everglades sells Floratam to customers in central and southern Florida in areas that do not get too cold during the winter months due to Floratam’s vulnerability to cold weather.
