In respect to this, how do you fertilize Bahia grass in Florida?
To supply 2 pounds of actual nitrogen yearly, apply a 32-0-4 lawn fertilizer at a rate of 1 1/2 pound per 1,000 square feet every three months in warm zones, or at four regularly spaced intervals between midspring and early fall in colder areas.
Beside above, can you mix Bahia and St Augustine grass? Augustine grass is the only grass you should propagate by plugs in our area. I never suggest mixing grasses such as plugging a Bahia lawn with St. Augustine plugs. This will only cause you problems down the road.

As a warm-season grass, Bahia operates on a different timetable than northern grasses for month-by-month lawn tasks. Seeding is best done in spring, as growth accelerates. Overseed existing thin lawns at the same time. However, the warm, moderate winters in Bahia's limited area offer some flexibility.
