Buffalo grass is the native choice for an environmentally friendly lawn. Buffalograss has survived for millions of years, through droughts, floods and insect invasions. It is the only turfgrass that is native to the United States. Unlike fescue or bluegrass, this lawn grass uses only 1/4 inch of water per week to stay green. Buffalo grass is dense, fine textured, and maintains a beautiful medium green color during the growing season. It requires full sun, well-drained clay soil, and a taller mowing height of 4î.
We feel the conservation of water is a must for all of us, but we must also reduce our dependency on excess chemicals and the need for the weekly ritual of mowing. Lawnmowers are one of the worst sources of air pollution we breath. Legacy and Prestige buffalograss need to be mowed only once every 2 to 4 weeks. Since this variety has such a short maximum height, many people choose to leave their lawns un-mowed at 4-6î all season.
