    St. Augustine . You asked this before with the first pic didn't you. ( I remember the picture). Or it might have been someone else.

    vipermanz - you said it striped nicely? what are you doing? all we have down here is Flortam, Palmedow(misspelled) and Bitter Blue types of St. Augustine. I haven't been able to get it to stripe nor have I ever seen it striped. If I could that would set me apart from all the LCO in Jacksonville.

    This brings up a question I have. Is there a book or maybe even a website that shows photos and descriptions of types of grasses?

    I know there are like thousands of varieties, but something where I could just learn the basics?

    Thanks.

    Gogetter-
    I right now am looking at my turf book- "Turfgrass Management" by A.J. Turgeon. One book will not suffice. However this book is a good one for learning turf.

    I was just flipping through there and found a mathematical formula for how to cut grass, at what speed, height, etc.

    I'd like to see a photo .....the St. Aug in our area barely leaves what may even be called a stripe .......

    the stuff in the photo is St. Aug .....but such a thick, coarse, stiff blade does not lay down when passed over to give the "stripe effect" from the sunlight
