Seashore Paspalum


Seashore Paspalum

Seashore Paspalum is a premium warm season perennial grass which displays a prostrate growth habit that forms a moderately dense but uniform sward.
It thrives in warm to hot climates, produces a deep rooting system and has aggressive stolon and rhizome activity.
Sea Spray suits a wide variety of turf situations which include golf tees, fairways, greens and roughs, parks, home lawns, recreational areas, erosion control and most coastal sites that are influenced by salt.
This wide range of use is due to the grass plant’s tolerance of most soil types, its ability to withstand pH levels between 4.5 – 9.0 and its unique ability to withstand soils or irrigation water with salt contents up to 34,000ppm NaCI, this also makes Seashore Paspalum the perfect choice for surfaces watered with recycled or bore water.
Seashore Paspalum performs well in reduced light situations such as rainy, cloudy, foggy, or in smoggy environments, its tolerance to shade is better than that of most bermudagrasses.
Seashore Paspalum has a tolerance to cold weather which is similar to most Couch or Bermudagrasses, displaying good winter colour in mild climates.
Seashore Paspalum is well suited to areas at sea level. Its ability to withstand short term inundation means that it’s a perfect choice for locations with a low water table or in tidal situations.


Seeding rates:

  • New Lawns: 10 grams per square meter (1 kg/100m2).
  • Overseeding: 5 grams per square meter (1kg/200m2).




Optimal pH: Able to withstand pH levels between 4.5 – 9.0

Sowing Tips:  Seed should be planted late spring through mid-summer to achieve a quality sward
prior to the arrival of cooler temperatures. The seed should be sown at a depth of 5-10 mm, good soil to seed contact is necessary.

Optimal Planting Time:

Germination: 10-17 days given optimal soil conditions of 18-26 °C. It is not recommended to plant Sea Spray in soil temperatures below 15 °C. Full coverage can be expected in approximately 8 – 10 weeks

Water: The cultivated seedbed should be kept moist during germination and early establishment. Tolerant of saline conditions.


First Mowing: First mowing is recommended when turf reaches approximately 2.5 cm in height to promote horizontal growth.

Disadvantages of Seashore Paspalum:

  • It doesn’t cope well with frosts, and one particularly chilly morning can serve to severely affect the health of the grass. If you live in an area prone to frosts, even only once in a while, Seashore Paspalum may not be your best choice.
  • Seashore Paspalum is temperature sensitive and should be used within 45-60 days of receipt.
