Hello nature lover.....!

Buffalograss - NativeGrasses.com

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.

Nativegrass

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.

Native Grasses - Buffalograss

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 Buffalo.  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 grass is also available as seed.
