Who will win? Floratam or Raleigh?
This question originated on the gallery from ba_tex, but I had considered doing the same thing.
In my case I'm wondering if Floratam would thrive if plugs were introduced to a lawn of Burmuda and Raleigh St. Augustine.
My back yard used to be all old fashioned St. Augustine, but with the last two very dry summers the St. Augustine has declined and there is mostly Burmuda grass in the sunny spots.
Would some plugs of Floratam would grow well in these conditions? We've just added some good compost to the lawn area and are in the process of reducing it's size so that we can keep it watered better this year at less expense.
