Mowing

 
  • During the hotter months, it is important to mow your Palmetto buffalo lawn every 7-10 days. In the colder months, Palmetto buffalo grass should be mowed every 3-6 weeks.
  • For Palmetto buffalo grass growing in sunny or lightly shaded conditions, it is recommended that it be mowed to a 2-5cm height. In heavily shaded conditions, to should be mowed to a 5-7cm height.

Watering

 
  • Palmetto buffalo grass should be watered thoroughly and regularly after it has been freshly laid. This will encourage the beginnings of a deep and vigorous root system. Because your Palmetto buffalo grass will be able to fossick for water, it will be able to withstand hot and dry conditions.
  • After the root system of your Palmetto buffalo grass is fully established, it should be watered thoroughly only when needed and when wilting is visible. Although buffalo grass should be watered every 7-10 days in hot summer conditions (and more frequently on sandy soils) much less watering is needed during cooler moths. This infrequent, deep watering promotes a more vibrant and healthy lawn, whilst over watering encourages root rot, disease and excessive growth.
  • Watering in the morning is recommended. Night watering can be detrimental to your lawn's health.

Fertilising

 
It is recommended that a complete fertiliser be used in early April and early September. Slow release fertilisers are better suited during the rest of the year. If your lawn is not looking it's greenest, you should apply a high nitrogen fertiliser. Supergreen or organic based, slowrelease fertilisers are particularly effective.

During summer, over fertilising or using manure products is not recommended.

Pests, Weeds & Diseases

 
Although Palmetto buffalo grass is highly resistant to pests, weeds and diseases, it is possible that these harmful elements may effect the health of your Palmetto buffalo grass. Pesticides should be rapidly applied should grubs or black beetles be detected. If you notice weed growth, talk to the staff at your local garden centre to receive the best treatment option.
