  • Palmetto has less upwards growth than other Buffalo varieties which means significantly less mowing to keep your lawn looking great.
  • Palmetto has a very soft leaf which is not scratchy and will not irritate tender skin.
  • Palmetto has proven to be an efficient water user, so together with its deep root system enhances its drought resistance.
  • Palmetto grows actively all year round forming a dense mat which minimises the chance of weed invasion.
  • Palmetto is low allergenic and displays good disease and pest tolerance.
  • Palmetto has far less thatch than other grass types which reduces the opportunity of scalping when mown.
  • Palmetto is ideal for a domestic lawn, commercial premises and public spaces.
