Answer: Before you seed the area, have the soil tested for fertility and pH. Pines prefer acidic soil, and their fallen needles help maintain acidity. You'll probably have to add lime (based on your soil test results) to make the soil suitable for any turfgrass. The recommended seeding rate is 2-3 lbs/1000 square feet, so your 30 lbs would cover about a quarter acre. Although Bahiagrass is a slow grower, it definitely has advantages: low thatching potential, good drought and wear tolerance, and low fertility needs (2-4 lbs of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft per year!). Hope this helps!
