Bahia, also known as Bahiagrass or Argentine Bahia, is some of the most hardy grass you can have in your Southwest Florida lawn, which is located in lower zone 9. Growing in Cape Coral, Pine Island, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and Naples, Argentine Bahia is the perfect choice of sod for your yard. We highly recommend Bahia for any landscaping projects or touch ups you want to have done for your yard.
Argentine Bahia was developed for its forage production quality. In essence, this grass is low-maintenance and hardy in the conditions that Southwest Florida can throw at us. Its low water requirements are particularly beneficial during our drier winter season because its root system runs deep and is able to hold moisture for longer periods of time than other grasses.
In addition to the natural elements, Bahia does well in high-traffic areas. So if you have a dog or kids who like to play in the yard, know that Bahiagrass will hold up and will not deteriorate because of high traffic.
This variety of Bahiagrass tends to tolerate limited shade and poorly drained fields better than other grasses, such as the Bermuda grass. Take this into consideration when observing your yard and picturing where your grass is going to go.
If you do not already know, it is recommended that your soil is tested before establishing sod in your yard. Fortunately, Argentine Bahia does well in poor, sandy soil. Bahiagrass prefers pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
