Bahia is typically harvested directly out of a cow pastures so it does not arrive in your lawn looking like any other farm raised and managed turf. You can expect it to have a few weeds, be a bit tall and unkempt and might not always hold in full pieces. Another disadvantages of Bahia is the number of and height of the seed heads it produces. On the other hand Bahia is the most drought tolerant grass we sell and is the most economically priced. “Field grass” as it is commonly referred to in Florida, is known for its vigor and ability to recover. Being a cheap sod option and not needing any regular irrigation are two reasons you see it along the road sides and on many county and municipal grass projects.
