Palmetto Buffalo Lawn Maintenance

Let’s say you’ve properly installed your Palmetto Buffalo Lawn, mainenance is the key to to a long lasting beautiful lawn. Here are some great tips on mowing, watering, fertilising, and keeping out pests, weeds & diseases…

Mowing

  1. Mow your buffalo lawn every 7-10 days in the hot months; mow every 3-6 weeks in the cold months.
  2. Mowing height will vary: 2-5cm in sunny/lightly shaded situations,5-7cm in heavier shaded situations.

Watering (See turf watering tips for detailed information)

    Water thoroughly and regularly after Palmetto Buffalo Grass has been laid to encourage a deep and vigorous root system (turf will be able to fossick for water and therefore be more able to withstand hot dry conditions).

    Once the root system has fully established, water thoroughly only when needed (when a slight wilting is visible), usually once every 7-10 days in summer (on sandy soils more often), with much less or no water in cooler months.

    Remember that infrequent, deep watering promotes a healthy lawn. Over watering encourages excessive growth, disease and root rot. It is best to water in the early morning; night watering is not recommended.
