Bahia is a popular low-maintenance lawngrass for infertile soils. The primary uses for Bahia are residential and commercial lawns and erosion control.

Bahia Characteristics:

  • Dark green color
  • Coarse texture blades with seed heads (May to November)
  • Dense Sod
  • Good Color
  • Cold Hardiness
  • One of the most drought tolerant grasses
  • Withstands moderate traffic
  • Low salt tolerance
  • Low maintenance
  • Responds well to fertilization
  • Must have full sun
  • Mole crickets are a Bahia pest

Mowing height: During active growth, mow every 7 - 14 days at 3 inches

Watering Requirements: Watering is required when blades begin to fold up, to actually wilt, turn blue gray in color or when footprints remain visible after walking on the grass. Apply 1/2 " to 3/4" of water per application.

**It is important not to mow Bahia at lower heights, as that will reduce the tolerance of the grass to heat, drought, and other stresses. This will also suppress root growth.

See the Bahia Maintenance page for a more in-depth look at how to properly maintain an Argentine Bahia lawn.
