Buffalo grass is a subspecies of grass that is native to the Great Plains. Long before the first settlers built their homes in the Plains, huge herds of buffalos roamed free and fed on this grass, hence the name. It’s a warm-season grass with growing popularity as a low-maintenance option for turfgrass. One of Buffalo grass’s best qualities is its drought resistance as it can survive on as little as one and a half inches of rainfall per month. Lawn care for Buffalo grass is about as easy as it can be.
Buffalo grass has a distinct blue-ish gray color and is soft in texture due to its thin leaves. It stays relatively short, and even if left unmowed, the leaves fold over, giving it the appearance of being much shorter than it actually is. It grows rapidly by rhizomes, which means the root system grows horizontally underground and then shoots up new leaves. Because it is not a thick turfgrass, Buffalo grass is more susceptible to invasive weeds.
While Buffalo grass is a low-maintenance turfgrass option, it does still require basic lawn care to look it’s best. Your lawn care should include:
