Why Choose Palmetto Buffalo Grass

Palmetto Buffalo Grass needs less mowing, and although it grows across the ground at a fast rate, its upward leaf growth is similar to most other Buffalo grass varieties. One of the main reasons people buy Buffalo is that it requires less mowing.

Palmetto has a deep root system, making it drought resistant. It is the efficient water user, helping it to cope in dry conditions, It will still need water to maintain its condition if the season is really dry. Leaving it with no water can cause the Lawn to die.

Once the turf is layed and is well established, its dense growth makes it much harder for weeds to establish. As Palmetto actively grows in most areas in winter, it is less likely to allow weeds to invade. Of course, occasionally weeds can develop in a Palmetto buffalo lawn.
