oh yeah its a per everything, we edge weed-eat and do battle to keep it in check, and it still looks like a weed even to a native. we tried some brand name empire( zoysia hybrid) and its ok, just have to get the blades on the mower out of the sky(4" for SAF) and 2" for the empire.we are also doing a re seed now, yes in the heat of summer, its all Argentine Bahia. 2 weeks now and it looks so wonderful, it like a chia yard. that took almost all this months compost to do, But wow it looks great, and its real thin bladed grass. SAF is like a fat girl, you have her there because shes easy

So in reality the Argentine Bahia is perhaps the most desireable grass down there, that a northerner would appreciate anyways.
It seems that - that was what one girl at the nursery was telling me - Bahia uses about 1/4 the water of either SAF or some other common grass.
