Get A Great Lawn with Buffalo Grass1:43 PM
Buffalo grass gets its name from its history. It was one of the main, native turf grasses that helped to support the roaming and grazing herds of buffalo that used to be all over the land. The grass is relatively thin and sparse, with a blue-green coloring, and the blades can grow 10 to 12 inches tall. Because the grass is thin, though, the blades fall over and give the appearance of being much shorter. That gives the grassy area a unique look. If you decide to use this type of grass for your yard or another area that you want to plant, there are two ways to do it.
The grass can grow from runners, or you can use seeds. Whichever way you choose to get your grass to grow, though, remember that the area it's being placed on has to be acceptable to it. This kind of grass only grows in certain conditions, and is very tolerant to drought and heat. It won't work well in an area of the country that's very humid, or a place where there is a large amount of rainfall. It's better in more desert-like conditions and in the plains states.
Knowing whether Buffalo is the right grass for your area is the first step. If it turns out that you can grow the grass in your location, make sure you do your research and prep your site carefully. The more care you take in getting the site ready the easier it will be to plant your grass and see it do well. Whether you're using it for a yard or for an open field, it can look beautiful and be relatively easy to maintain once you get it started. Just make sure you consult with a professional if you're unsure about something or if the grass starts to die or perform poorly.
