Why is a Saphire Buffalo Lawn so Good?

Out Competes Weeds

Due to the tight mat and high performance of Sapphire Buffalo Grass it leaves very little room for weeds to grow. It is excellent at out competing weeds. In the unlikely event that broad leaf weeds ever become a problem, a Sapphire Buffalo Lawn can be sprayed with Bromoxynil and MCPA, as it is resistant to these chemicals. Follow directions on the spray pack. Remember never to use Dicamba on Buffalo grass.

Fast Recovery

Sapphire Buffalo Grass has rapid growth across the ground. This high performance allows it to cope well with high traffic situations. In extra high wear areas it is recommended that you fertilise and water more than normal.

Best Looking Buffalo Lawn

Due to its fine texture, and the nice way the leaf sits, a Sapphire Buffalo Lawn looks superb. When Sapphire Buffalo Grass is mature its leaf tends to fold back giving a much finer appearance.

Sun and Shade

Sapphire is the number one Buffalo in shade. This has been based on averages gathered from the Horticultural Australia and Department of Primary Industries trial data. Click here for more information.

Less Thatch

Sapphire Buffalo Grass is proving to be less spongy than other buffalo varieties.

Great Winter Colour

It takes quite a few frosts to send a Sapphire Buffalo Lawn off colour. The image at the left shows a Sapphire Buffalo Lawn with a heavy frost covering and the colour is still excellent.

Drought Tough Buffalo Grass

Sapphire Buffalo Lawn has a very deep root system, which means it can hang on looking great with less frequent watering. In normal soils on the East Coast of Australia, a Sapphire Buffalo Lawn should only need watering in the warmer months, and in general once every few weeks should be enough, except in severe heat and drought conditions.

Less seed head, low allergetic

In data from the DPI and HAL research, from a site located at Richmond, NSW, Sapphire had on average far less seed head over a 12 month monitoring period compared to the average of other Buffalos. In fact, after summarising the research data we found Sapphire had a 39% lower seed head score compared to the averages of other Buffalos.

Salt Water

At average salt water pool levels, Sapphire was one of the best performing grasses in Department of Primary Industries Research.
