Selected species: Buffalograss
Buffalo grass is one of the main grasses sold into shaded areas and residential lawns in general. It is coarse textured and needs to be mown higher than the couches for best results. It has reasonable drought and wear tolerance, but shows poor tolerance of some herbicides typically used for broadleaf weed control. Buffalo grass requires less fertiliser than green couch to maintain a lawn in good condition.
Mowing height is 20 mm to 65 mm.
