If you live in Texas, you’ll know that spring has finally sprung, and Easter is just around the corner! Spring is an optimal time to plant warm-season grasses, and now is a perfect time to get your lawn spruced up so your kids can hunt for eggs come Easter morning.
Fortunately, St. Augustine grasses love our climate and will grow dense and soft with proper care. Depending on the weather and water outputs, our St. Augustine cultivars will root quickly when watered properly for root establishment, typically within a week or two. St. Augustine’s recommended mow height is 2-3 inches, making it easy to hide your prize eggs!
This Easter is supposed to be warm, with meteorologists predicting temperatures between 70-80°F. Thanks to evapotranspiration, St. Augustine grass’s leaves will “sweat” for you, keeping your yard cooler than the ambient temperatures.
We also might get some rain this Easter weekend, as well, so it may help to plant your new grass now to avoid a muddy mess! Your neighbors will be green with envy!
No matter your climate and soil conditions, there is a St. Augustine grass that is right for you. From the popular Texas Native grass to the Raleigh and Palmetto varieties, there are plenty of options to choose from. Each cultivar has its own characteristic colors, texture, and growth habits, so be sure to do your research to pick the right type for you.
Also, as you start planting your grasses, don’t forget to take extra precautions. Make sure to properly prepare the ground, water your lawn properly, only water early morning, and look for signs of fungal lawn disease when overnight temperatures are cool. This way, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy lawn for years to come.
