I live in Conroe, north of Houston TX. I had a bad experience with St. Augustine on my lawn, It suddenly died after 2 years of extensive work and expenses.
See my original post https://turfgrass.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000144.html
Is there anyone who has planted this grass for the Houston area? Does it sounds crazy to consider it?

Seashore Paspalum varieties MUST have FULL sun to prosper. They must be mowed frequently, twice a week in rainy Summer weather and kept quite short. Less than 1 inch to remain dense and weed free. Seaspray needs to be cut with a Reel-type mower. See thread below

The paspalum can be maintained at heights from less than 1/2″(greens on a golf course) to about 4″ (really rough rough on a golf course – pun intended).
You can control the Bermuda in Sea Spray and Sea Isle Supreme by spraying the bermuda daily for 3-7 days with 75/25 ocean water to fresh water mixtures. It will cause some damage to the paspalum but far more damage to the bermuda.
