Buffalo Lawn Seed Blendx
Buffalo Lawn Seed Blend
Suited to both warmer and tempetare climates of Australia, McKays Buffalo grass is ideally adapted to warmer areas of Australia areas that receive 400 – 900 mm of rainfall. It is recommended for the use in playgrounds and parks, golf course roughs, as well as residential lawns. Under the right conditions, the seed will take 4 weeks until germination, and will require 6-8 hours of full sunlight. It is possible to establish Buffalo in the cooler climates like Victoria, however, make sure you plant around October/November, when the weather is over 25 degrees.

McKays Buffalo Grass Seed Blend
McKays Buffalo Grass Seed Blend is an excellent summer active lawn with good shade, drought and frost tolerance. It is a great affordable option for establishing a magnificent buffalo lawn from scratch. Being a running variety, buffalo is also highly durable as any wear and tear will ‘self-repair’. Compared to laying turf it makes great sense too. In order to establish a 100m2 lawn using turf would cost between $800-1200 vs. less than $142 with seed. With all the money saved you can buy a new set of swings, or an outdoor setting from which you can admire your new lawn. There’s also no back breaking work to be done carrying OVER a TON of turf up the driveway. Simply prepare your soil, and then sow. McKays Buffalo Grass Seed Blend is one of the only Buffalo varieties available as Seed, and our blend contains a very high 50% Buffalo content to ensure a high quality buffalo lawn.
“Great germination rate” “We’ve bought this twice already and the grass seeds grow very well.”
