Pensacola Bahiagrass

Ideal for full sun lawns in the Southern Coastal Plain and Gulf Coast regions, Pennington Pensacola Bahiagrass Penkoted grass seed offers your lawn better turf quality and improved tolerance to heat and cold compared to ordinary Bahiagrass seed. Once established, this superior variety produces a durable, drought-tolerant, low-growing lawn that needs less irrigation, less fertilizer and less mowing than other warm-season grasses. That means less labor, less expense and more free time for you.

  • Deep root system for excellent drought resistance
  • Best for low-maintenance areas in Florida and other Gulf Coast areas
  • Produces a low-maintenance, durable lawn
  • Penkoted for seedling protection

New Seeding
Prepare the soil by tilling to a depth of 4–6 inches. Conduct a soil test to be sure your soil has the proper nutrients it needs for a healthy lawn. Apply fertilizer and lime at the recommended rates. If you are unable to conduct a soil test, apply lime and a complete lawn fertilizer according to the recommended rates on the packages. Work lime and fertilizer evenly into the soil, then rake the soil surface smooth to give the seed an ideal bed in which to establish healthy roots. Sow the grass seed by evenly spreading according to the recommended seeding rates. Rake, harrow or otherwise work the seed into the soil ¼” to ½” deep. Keep the area well-watered until the seeds germinate and the seedlings have grown sufficiently to establish a lawn, then water as needed.

Overseeding or Reseeding
Before overseeding, it is important to prepare the soil. Conduct a soil test to be sure your lawn has the proper balance of nutrients. Fertilize and lime if needed. Mow or clip the existing grass as closely as possible. Remove clippings and rake, harrow lightly or aerate the soil where there is existing lawn. This will allow the new seed to make contact with the soil. Sow the seed and gently rake to cover. Keep the lawn moist until seedlings are established, then water as needed.

Undesirable Lawns
Rid your lawn of undesirable grasses following the steps below so that you can establish a desirable lawn:

  • During any growing season, spray the established undesirable turf with a nonselective herbicide labeled for lawn use. Follow the directions on the label.
  • After the lawn turns brown, continue with your seeding program as outlined above. Be sure to start with a soil test or a complete lawn fertilizer.

Improving Bare Spots
Mow your lawn closely, then remove leaves, dead grass, etc. Rake, harrow lightly or aerate the bare spots to prepare the seedbed. Conduct a soil test to be sure the soil has the proper balance of nutrients. Fertilize and lime if needed.

MANAGING FALL LAWN WEEDS and FERTILIZERS Warm-season grasses, such as Bermudagrass, bahiagrass, centipede grass and zoysia grass, thrive in southern regions and peak in growth during warm summer months. As fall approaches, their growth slows and dormancy sets in with the season’s first killing frost. Feed warm-season grasses their last feeding of the season six to eight weeks before the average fall frost date in your region. They’re still actively growing, but they’ll soon n. eed to harden off and prepare for winter. Bermuda grass has higher nitrogen needs than some other warm-season grasses, so it can be fertilized up to four to five weeks before frost.1 But don’t feed warm-season lawns any later. Fertilizing too late in the growing cycle can stimulate late-season growth that delays dormancy and makes lawns more susceptible to winter injury. Pensacola Seed & Garden has all the fall fertilizers now in stock. Come see all our other fall flower and plants. 4915 Mobile Hwy Pensacola, Florida 32506-3229
