A user-friendly operational manual for seashore paspalum, an exciting new grass perfect for use on golf courses, lawns, sports fields, and in sod production! Seashore Paspalum provides an exciting alternative grass of comparable texture and quality to hybrid bermudagrasses that can tolerate effluent, brackish, and seawater blends.
