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, it may lose some colour in the winter, though this will improve with age. Installation is recommended from September through to May. Once Sir Walter is established it requires much less water than other varieties of turf. A good water once a week is generally enough, however in extreme conditions it may need extra. During the winter months Sir Walter rarely needs irrigation.
As with all lawns you must wait until the lawn is fully established before mowing.
Sir Walter needs to be top dressed with washed sand at a rate of half a cubic meter to every 100 square meters. Focus mainly on the joins and edges to stop it drying out.
For the healthiest lawn fertilise at the start of each season.
