|Buffalo grass is the only true
indigenous warm season turf grass grown in the mid- southern United States. Buffalo grass
is so named because it was a primary food source of the American buffalo stretching across
the Great Plains into the Mexican region and in most of Texas.
Being a native grass it
survives on some of the toughest areas and is drought resistant, curly, and low growing,
fine in texture, surviving in hot and cooler temperatures. It was the only source that
could be utilized by the early farmers who built their "sod " homes from the cut
sections of the acres of grass growing on the plains.

Usage: Buffalo grass can be used in a native- type lawn and interseeded with
wildflowers for that area since it grows in a rather thinly turfed pattern unless properly
enticed to thicken for a full lawn. Meadow plantings of this grass are beautiful in the
bluish-gray coloring of the grass. Golf course roughs and fairways. Erosion control sites,
roadsides, low maintenance sites parks, playgrounds, natural settings, hospitals, etc. Can
be planted with small sod or plug sections on a moist bed. Used extensively in pastures.
Watering: It does well on low irrigation and will turn brown and die back in the
summer if not watered.
Fertilization: Low fertilization requirements with1 ˝ to 2lb/1000SF yearly
depending upon the usage.
Seeding: Preferably treated seed to get the best germination possible and the
poundage depends upon maintenance program and moisture available with a basic method of
5lb/1000SF. -- Patience and time are needed in seeding
It does NOT produce dense stands like cool season grasses (Fescue,
etc.). Low establishment rates of seedlings can still result
in a complete turf by second year. Weeds must be controlled
during establishment phase by mowing, spot spraying and hand
pulling. Planting should be in spring after soil
temperatures are 60-65 degrees and climbing (day air 75-80).
Maintenance: Mowing depends upon the usage, watering and fertilization schedules.
If grown for a low maintenance lawn then mowing and care can be kept to a minimum. Golf
fairways of course will require more frequent and lower mowing and watering schedules. Has
naturalized resistance to pests and disease.
Adaptation: Harder, denser, clay type soils and will not tolerate sandy soils, and
in the mid U.S. Dry and more arid areas with some alkalinity, full sun.
Turf Varieties: Texoca, Cody, Bison,
Buffalo Pals Blend. - Common Buffalo
