TamStar St. Augustine Is Great Looking Grass
TamStar grass has a smaller leaf blade than other St. Augustine grass varieties, so it produces a more lush, dense turf. With its dark green color, it is the best looking St. Augustine grass you’ll find in the Houston area.
TamStar grass also greens up earlier in the spring. Our farm’s fields of TamStar turned green about two weeks earlier than any other variety this year. TamStar St. Augustine grass is cold tolerant, and it’s survived many winters in the Dallas area as evidence of that trait.
TamStar Grass Is Drought and Shade Tolerant
TamStar grass is also drought tolerant. We’ve had good rainfall in the Houston area for the last several years, but we had a severe drought in 2011. TamStar St. Augustine has been proven to have good drought tolerance compared to the Zoysia grasses, the Bermuda grasses and other St. Augustine grasses. It also has a quick recovery time, once the rain starts to fall or irrigation is used.
TamStar is also less susceptible to Gray Leaf Spot, and it suppresses the Southern Chinch bug, which is common in our area during the heat of the summer.
TamStar St. Augustine Is Low Maintenance
This is a low maintenance grass. it doesn’t require a special mower like a reel mower. You can use a rotary mower to keep your grass mowed to between one and two inches. You may want to mow your grass a little higher for shaded areas.
TamStar grass is faster growing than any of the Zoysia varieties so it can repair itself from gouges or dings more quickly, if properly maintained. Of course, it spreads faster than Zoysia grasses so you’ll have to edge a little more frequently to keep it out of your flower beds and the shrubbery adjoining your lawn.
