Palmetto Grass Turf
This tough but soft leaf type of grass is a variety of Buffalo. It has a similar broad leaf that compares to other Buffalo types like Old Sydney and Sir Walter. Basically, if you are looking for a soft leaf grass for your home lawn, you should consider getting the Palmetto.
Why Choose Palmetto?
Palmetto is the top selling brand of Buffalo grass in the world. It has proven to be one of the better-quality Buffalo grasses because it has really low thatch levels, superb drought recovery, excellent sun tolerance, and a beautiful winter colour.
Palmetto is a variety of Buffalo. This type of grass grows at a fast rate but its upward leaf growth is not like other varieties of Buffalo. It is quite popular because it doesn’t require frequent mowing unlike other Buffalo varieties. Palmetto grows fast across the ground but it grows slowly upwards, which makes it easier to maintain. What’s great about it is that it doesn’t need a lot of watering.
Another remarkable thing about Palmetto is it doesn’t let weeds establish in the turf. Once the Palmetto passed the establishing phase, its dense growth out-competes weeds. As it actively grows, it doesn’t allow weeds to invade its ground. This doesn’t mean that weeds will not grow; but using Palmetto as your turf grass will minimise the growth of weeds on your lawn.
Palmetto grows well in areas with full sun exposure but it also thrives in shaded areas. You will not get this feature from other types of grass. This is especially true during winter season. When other types of grass fail, Palmetto still survives with a beautiful winter colour.

Because Palmetto has quite a deep root system, it makes this type of grass more drought-resistant compared to the other types. Don’t you want to have both winter green lawns and summer green lawns? Those picture-perfect lawns are possible if you use Palmetto grass because it stays greener longer.
