If you have already followed my advice and bought yourself some St. Augustine Grass Seeds to plan in your garden, then now you must be wondering how to do your garden’s maintenance. To accomplish that objective, you will be amazed if you choose St Augustine grass, because St. Augustine grass is resistant, beautiful and fairly easy to plant. However, St Augustine Grass is sometimes difficult to maintain due to its inability of growing in cold places. In this article we will cover several different ways of getting your garden to look gorgeous with a small effort.

Another important thing is that, you need to ensure that you adjust your current mower blade according to the particular region in which you planted the St. Augustine Grass. For example, if the lawn is at a place where the sunlight is bright and shiny, you need to set your mower blade to a decrease position, because, as you cut the lawn more frequently, the importance for a strong root becomes notable.

    Your recommendation to “adjust your current mower blade according to the particular region in which you planted the St. Augustine Grass.” was good advice. Ive heard that St. Augustine grass can be difficult to cut with some mowers. In my research, I found that robotic lawn mowers can be really great for these types of lawns. They can teach themselves how many times a week to cut the lawn and will also adjust their cutting depending on how thick that lawn is and since the blades are so sharp, they will keep the lawn beautifully trimmed and healthy.
