Palmetto Buffalo Grass is a tough, soft leaf Buffalo that is available throughout Australia. Palmetto Buffalo Grass generally requires less watering and mowing than most other turf varieties. This turf can generally out compete weeds when established making it ideal for people looking for a great lawn with minimal effort.
Palmetto Buffalo grass has outstanding winter colour.
Palmetto does well in drought conditions as has a deep root system, making it an efficient water user.
Palmetto has great winter active growth, so it is less likely to drop out in shaded areas. Palmetto is recommended for up to 65% shade in areas with low wear and up to 45% shade in areas with moderate to high wear.
Palmetto is a good choice for those that want to mow less, due to its fast outward growing but slow upwards movement.
