As seen below, Sir Walter Buffalo is a creeping grass that moves over the surface making it easy to edge. It’s not as invasive as other varieties of grass such as Kikuyu or Couch.  Sir Walter loves both the sun and is shade tolerant, and is at it’s best with a minimum of 3 hours sunlight each day.

Installation is recommended from September through to May. This picture shows the loss of colour coming out of Winter.
