A warm-season, sod-forming, perennial grass that is primarily used for lawn use in the western transition zone.


When established, Buffalograss tends to be relatively low maintenance reaching heights from 3-12 inches. Known for its drought tolerance, Buffalograss prefers soils that are well-drained and climates that do not receive excessive amounts of rainfall. Typically western Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas are where it performs best.

Ideal Conditions:

  • Plant 1-3 lbs per thousand square feet May through July
  • Plant when soil temperatures reach 60-65 degrees F on a consistent basis
