Why is a Prestige Buffalo Lawn so Good?
Darkest green Buffalo lawn all year round
When buying a lawn, getting the darkest green colour possible is one of the top priorities. For those who desire the darkest green lawn in the street, Prestige® Buffalo is it!
In our trial plots, Prestige® turf has proven to be the darkest green Buffalo for most of the year (see photo). Prestige® lawns also have outstanding winter colour.
Doesn’t feel as spongy (less thatch)
Thatch causes a lawn to become very spongy, but like Palmetto® Buffalo, Prestige® turf is a low thatch variety.
Trials have shown that this Buffalo variety grows well in shade. It works in full sun to moderately heavy shade.
Its disease tolerance to grey leaf spot has been better than other varieties.
Drought and cold tough
Because Prestige® Buffalo was bred from the popular Palmetto® turf, it retains the same excellent cold and drought tolerance.Due to its large, deep root system, it is an efficient water user and stays green longer in dry conditions. For this same reason, it is able to cope with cold and stay green in winter.
