Why Is Good Soil So Important?
For optimum growth, buffalo grass needs just four things (in the proper balance) to grow: sunlight, air, water and nutrients. Reduce any of these, or provide too much of any one, and the grass may die or simply suffer.
In the right proportions, your buffalo lawn will flourish, providing not only beauty to the landscape, but also a clean and safe place to play and many benefits to the environment.
Grass obtains three of these four essential factors (air, water and nutrients) from the soil, but many soils are less than ideal for growing grass. Some soils contain too much clay and may be very compacted. It’s great for roads, but bad for grass because air and water aren’t available to the roots and the roots can’t grow.
Other soils may have too much sand. They are beautiful on a beach, but difficult to grow grass because water and nutrients won’t stay in the root zone long enough for the plant to use. Another frequently observed problem with many soils is that its pH (the degree of acidity or alkalinity) is too high or two low for optimum grass growth.
