Description

Mix contains:

70% Turf Type Buffalo grass
A warm season sod-former with germination in 14-21 days.
Buffalo grass has become very popular as a low-maintenance lawn grass. This hardy grass greens up two-to-three weeks later than Kentucky Bluegrass in spring, and stays green all summer with little or no care. It goes dormant at the first killing frost and turns a beautiful buff color until it breaks dormancy again in the spring. Buffalo grass is known for its low water usage, winter hardiness and low vertical growth habit. These traits reduce labor, irrigation, mowing and fertilization costs significantly. Bowie buffalograss meets all of today’s standards for a low maintenance turf grass. Developed specifically for turf quality, Bowie possesses medium green color, fine leaf texture, good turf density, and low growth habit. Bowie has improved lateral growth for quicker establishment.

30% Native Blue Grama
Warm season bunchgrass with germination in 7-10 days.
This grass demonstrates good drought, fair salinity, and moderate alkalinity tolerances. A great companion for buffalograss in native turf areas.
