DENSITY BUFFALO  

 

Density is a fine textured Buffalograss primarily developed for its superior turf quality which allows for faster, easier harvesting and planting. It is ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial sites. It is extremely low maintenance. It rarely needs mowing nor fertilizer.

According to Texas A&M University, Buffalograss, Buchloe dactyloides, is a perennial grass native to the Great Plains from Montana to Mexico. In Texas, it is commonly found from South Texas to the Texas Panhandle; but is rarely found on the sandy soils in the eastern part of the state or in the high rainfall areas of southeast Texas. It is one of the grasses that supported the great herds of buffalo that roamed the Great Plains. Buffalograss also provided the sod from which early settlers built their houses.



Light Requirements: Density Buffalo only requires 4-5 hours of sun.


Irrigation: Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Buffalo needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.
