Characteristics, History, Crucial Information About Buffalo Grass Sydney

by Noah White01 Marketing

Lush green lawns in front of the property are not just soothing to the eyes, but at the same time, they enhance the overall curb appeal as well as the resale value of the property. But this is possible only when the turf you have chosen is in accordance with the soil type, the climate, the overall environment of the region and so on. Based on these things, mostly people prefer buffalo grass Sydney over any other because of the lushness that it offers followed by the fact that it is low maintenance and tough grass. 

This grass is a perennial native to the Great Plains from Montana to New Mexico and it spreads with the help of its stolons. It was first brought into use around a century back in 1930s. Previously, this grass was known for being very expensive and very tough to establish, but things have now changed entirely and at present, it is most used household grass in Australia.

WHAT IS BUFFALO GRASS? 

According to turf suppliers, buffalo grass is arm season turf that is also drought tolerant as well as cold season tolerant. The fact is that this turf has better resistance to cold than any other warm season grass used in Australia. This also needs a mention here that as compared to other warm season turfs, this one has tolerance against a wide range of situations, adversities and issues that could arise in the outdoors. Moreover, it can be established very easily with the help of seeds, sods and even plugs and once it establishes firmly, it will not call for too much of attention and care, maintenance, etc. Mowing is something that helps in the survival of different kinds of turf, but in case of buffalo grass, this is also not required that frequently.

During the colder months, this grass turns into brown colour and becomes dormant and revives itself back only when the warmer temperature or the spring season arrives back. The top towing period for buffalo turf is between may and September and in the form of a plant, this turf forms a fine turf with bluish green colour 8 to 10 inches (20-25 cm.) high.

One more characteristic you will notice is that the blades are slightly curly and flowers of this turf can be both pistillate and staminate. The lawns prepared using this buffalo grass are very adapted to areas that experience very low moisture and also, this needs s mention that it is resistant to weeds and will not consume too much of water when it is newly cultivated.

CARE OF BUFFALO GRASS 

As mentioned above, too much of care and maintenance is not required with this kind of turf and on fact, too much of pampering will only make it lose its vigour. In terms of care, you can simply fertilize it in the spring season with 1 pound (.5 kg.) of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. If you wish, you can feed buffalo grass Sydney one more time during the months of June and July and the quantity should remain unchanged. Watering related needs are minimal and the reason is that it requires very less amount of moisture.
