St. Augustine grass, also known as buffalo turf in Australia and buffalo grass in South Africa, is a warm-season lawn grass that is popular for cultivation in tropical and subtropical regions. It is a medium- to high-maintenance grass that forms a thick, carpetlike sod, crowding out most weeds and other grasses.
Watering makes the ground more malleable and gives the roots of the St. Augustine grass plugs immediate moisture. The water you apply should soak in, not remain on the soil surface. Continue watering until the EZ Patch™ is completely saturated and no more water is being absorbed which may take several minutes.
