Ahh don’t you love Dorothy sitting up there “proud as punch” with her beautiful Palmetto Buffalo [Green Lawn]. So proud she had her photo taken with the lawn!
You need a professional [Lawn Spraying Service] when looking after Palmetto Buffalo.
Several reasons why:
- Palmetto Buffalo, although an American variety like the ST Buffalo grasses, is tolerant of most Australian herbicides registered for use on Buffalo grasses
- You still need to test spray all new Buffalo lawns that you acquire as new customers
- Palmetto Buffalo is very touch-y with Monument herbicide whereas (we have found) that if spraying a couch lawn with some Aussie Buffalo in it there is minimal damage (mostly discolouration)
- Although Palmetto performs reasonably well, I tend to favour the Australian Buffalo grasses as they hold their own in most situations and apart from everything else I would prefer to “Buy Australian”
