The Best Paspalum Grass Seed for Home Lawns
Seashore paspalum is one of most widely used types of turfgrasses found worldwide across Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas. In the United States, it grows as far south as Florida, as far north as Pennsylvania and as far west as Texas. Performing best in low, moist areas, seashore paspalum is a warm season turfgrass found throughout a large portion of the United States.
Seashore paspalum is a salt tolerant form of paspalum used in golf courses, sports fields, landscaping projects and home lawns. It can frequently be found along the east coast due to its tolerance of salty soils. Seashore paspalum can be installed in the form of sod, sprigging or with the use of grass seed.
