How to Fix Damages Suffered by Buffalo Grass?

by Turf Supplies turf supplies sydney
Buffalo grass is Australia’s best grass for a number of reason and don’t think that this is a sheer luck or so. No, there are different reasons why this turf has always been the top choice of the people of Australia and one is that it has really amazing self-recovery properties. 

Yes and even if some damage is there that it is unable to cover up on its own, in that case too, there would not too many hassles involved. 

This turf when installed in residential and commercial premises as well as public places can suffer different kinds of damages. 

Here in this post, we will earn how to take care of some damages occurred in your buffalo grass.


The lush green, cool looking buffalo lawn Sydney attracts the attention of everyone in the family including pets, kids, seniors as well as grown-ups. 

Because of the fact that they love to spend time there, he turf becomes damaged and areas like foot paths emerge there. 

When this thing is not taken care of at the right time and is ignored, what happens is that general wear emerges and it gives birth to the hard compacted soil.


The solution to this is super-easy that you will just have to aerate the soil on a regular basis to allow oxygen to reach in and the soil there gets ventilated too. This aeration also allows nutrients, water, fertiliser, etc. to penetrate deep into the soil and improve its quality. 

Once aeration is done, the next step recommended by the experts is that you should level the lowered ground due to compaction and for this, you can go for a good quality soil and/or a small amount of sandy top dressing. 

This will provide a really impressive and a nice, soft base for the turf to grow there too and repair it in case, any damage occurs thereafter.


  • Try and adapt yourself to a regular program of fertilising and watering the buffalo grass.

  • This is going to speed up the self-recovery process that this grass is always performing.

  • Fertilise every 8–9 weeks and water a couple of times a week.

  • It is important to help it along by minimising traffic as much as possible.


Pets are animals by nature and by instinct and they are the happiest when they are in an open and natural environment. They love to play in soft-cushioned buffalo grass, but this results into the grass getting damaged from different areas.


Again, the most common issue is the foot path developing and again, the solution is simple that we have discussed above. 

Frequent aeration of the compacted area can rejuvenate them and when fertiliser is applied, the compacted area becomes much more versatile and greener.


  • To prevent urine burn of buffalo grass, make sure that the pet stays well-hydrated by drinking lots of water.

  • Dog rocks are another solution that you can try by putting them in the bowl because this will prevent urine stains from affecting your buffalo lawn.

  • Experts further recommend that you should please practice safe buffalo lawn care around pets.
