Maintaining Your Buffalo Lawn

Nice looking Buffalo Lawn in Northern Beaches suburb of Newport.
 
We have a problem with leaves on lawns as they also create shade for Buffalo, and Buffalo grass, aka St Augustine in North America, (Stenotaphrum secundatum), needs at least 4-5 hours of direct sunlight each day to thrive.
 
Maintenance Tip!!
If you need to remove leaves and debris from the lawn then best to mow all lawn with a catcher rather than raking the leaves up.
 
Raking the grass can tear the grass runners out and weaken the grass.
