Buffalo Lawn Care
Why is Palmetto turf the biggest selling Buffalo lawn in the world?
Stenotaphrum secundatum 'SS100' PBR
Palmetto is the only popular low maintenance Buffalo grass in Australia. All the other types need a lot more mowing and edging, and grow a lot faster. But, probably the most important factor that makes Palmetto number one, is its stunning dark emerald green colour, which is consistent throughout summer and winter. Other types have a paler blue green colour.
Palmetto has performed brilliantly throughout Australia for over 10 years and has fast become the worlds most trusted and reliable Buffalo variety.
Well known for its excellent winter colour, over a two year evaluation period Palmetto had a rating of 106% better winter colour than other leading Buffalos tested. It’s low thatch or spongyness is one main reason for its great colour in winter. High thatch fast growing forms brown off quickly in winter.
It also has a lovely soft leaf texture and produced on average 40% less seed head, which is great for kids, families and people who suffer allergies, or for those who just hate the ugly look of masses of big buffalo seed heads. A deep, strong root system helps Palmetto recover quickly from any damage by wear or minor scalping, and sends out runners to repair exposed areas.
Palmetto performs extremely well in up to 60% to 70% shade, and once established is very drought tolerant compared to many other Buffalo types. It’s low thatch is why you are far less likely to get that sinking feeling from your Palmetto turf grass. Fast growing types quickly become spongy under foot.
Minimal maintenance required, Palmetto is slow growing with considerably less thatch which means you can mow less frequently and it won’t become too tall, untidy or invasive. Slower growing not only means less mowing, but also less edging, resulting in more time sitting back and appreciating your beautiful lawn.
Fast becoming the preferred choice for landscape specifiers, contractors and home gardeners Australia wide, Palmetto is a great looking lawn with minimal maintenance and stunning all year round colour, so why not join the rest of the world and chose a Palmetto soft leaf buffalo lawn?
