World’s most popular Buffalo grass

Playing on grass

Key Features

  • Soft leaf texture which feels wonderful under foot
  • Low maintenance – mowing
  • Produces little seed head – common irritant to people with allergies
  • High wear and shade tolerance
  • Excellent winter green colour

 

Palmetto® Buffalo requires less watering and maintenance than other Buffalo varieties and only needs fertilising once or twice a year. With an excellent green colour throughout the year, including autumn and winter in most regions, and its ability to out-compete weeds, this Soft Leaf Buffalo is an ideal family lawn choice.

Behind Palmetto’s® strength is its larger and deep-rooted system that makes it more drought-tolerant and water efficient – staying greener for longer in dry conditions.

With good ground growth and high branches, Palmetto® provides solid wear recovery which is recommended for high wear areas such as backyards for dogs or energetic kids.

It is well-suited for most parts of Australia including much of Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
