Bowie Buffalo Grass Seed Facts

Bowie Buffalograss Seed produces a low maintenance turf grass that is suitable for use as a turf grass for lawns as well as for professional uses such as golf course roughs. Bowie buffalo grass has a medium green color, fine leaf texture, good turf density, and a low growth habit. Bowie has improved color and height uniformity, lateral growth for quicker establishment, winter hardiness, and spring green up.

Great for the environment and for those who don't want to spend all their time taking care of a lawn, buffalo grass requires little water or fertilizer. As for mowing -- well that is up to you as this Native grass will reach only 4 to 8 inches and curls over when it gets long.

Areas of Adaptation For Bowie Buffalo Grass

Bowie Buffalo Grass Planting MapBowie buffalo grass seed was developed using four parental grasses from Texas, Colorado and Nebraska thus it is adapted to a wide geographical area with parentage favoring the northern part of the Buffalograss range. Bowie can survive the colder northern climates plus withstand the hot and dry southwestern climates as well. Bowie has a wide range of adaptation extending across the entire USA. Bowie is not recommended for shady areas or elevations above 5000 ft.

Bowie Buffalo Grass Usage Planting Info & Management

Buffalograss is a low maintenance grass and will fail if over managed.
  • Usage - Golf Courses, Residential Lawns, Industrial Sites, Acreages
  • Seeding Rate - 2-3 lbs. seed per 1000 sq. ft. (1-1.5 kgs. per 100 sq. meters) in a firm seed bed
  • Planting Time -  When soil temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees F (16 C)
  • Where to Plant: Sites with 6-8 hours sun per day, good drainage. (All soils except sand.)
  • Method for Planting - Cover seed from 1/4-1/2 inch (0.6-1.2 cm)
  • Watering - Frequent light watering during establishment. Infrequent deep soaking for mature turf.
  • Germination - 14 to 21 days
  • Establishment - 60 to 90 days under optimum growing conditions
  • Fertilization - 1-3 lbs. N per 1,000 sq.ft. per growing season -- if needed
  • Mowing Height - 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) for best turf
  • Mowing Frequency - moderate to high quality turf is desired, mow once per week at a height of 2 to 3 inches. For low-maintenance areas mow at 3 to 4 inches every three to four weeks. Buffalograss may also be left unmowed except for an annual spring mowing at 3 to 4 inches to remove old growth.
  • Herbicides -  None during establishment. After establishment use only products labeled for Buffalograss.
Note: We do not recommend the use of chemicals for weed control in Buffalo Grass. To prevent issues with weeds then consider these options :
  • Avoid frequent irrigation. Water only as needed to maintain desired Buffalograss quality.
  • Avoid over fertilization with nitrogen
  • Be sure and plant in weed free bed that has been tilled
  • Irrigate Buffalograss only enough to maintain growth and prevent dormancy, if desired. Buffalograss will survive extended drought but will lose color as it enters dormancy. Overwatering will promote weed competition and may increase the incidence of disease.
