UC Verde Buffalo Grass Plugs
The University of California released this remarkable grass in 2003. UC Verde produces a dense turf of soft, bright-green, very fine leaf blades.
Due to its inability to handle humidity, it is an excellent choice for the dry hot conditions found in the lower valley of the desert southwest and California.
UC Verde will grow to a maximum height of 4 to 8 inches in most locations. UC Verde is available only as accelerated growth plugs.
Buffalograss varieties give up to a 75% reduction in water consumption, therefore saving you money. These varieties thrive on a fraction of the amount of water needed for most turf grasses.
With a root system extending several feet into the ground, watering is not needed in most parts of the country. The rest of the country will see a substantial reduction in water usage.
In gallons this means about one million gallons of water per acre can be saved by using Legacy, Prestige or UC Verde. This allows water to be used for other necessities, like drinking.
