A Thick, Soft Lawn That Tolerates Intense Heat

The University of California released this remarkable grass in 2003. UC Verde produces a dense turf of soft, bright-green, very fine leaf blades.

UC Verde buffalo grass is the most heat tolerant.  It is the grass to use in areas of dry, intense heat found in the southwest and California.

UC Verde will grow to a maximum height of 4 to 8 inches in most locations. It shows allelopathic tendencies so it is known to suppress weeds.

Buffalo grass 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.

An Established Lawn in as Little as 90 Days!

You will receive Accelerated Growth Plugs, the economical way to a buffalo grass lawn.  Planting is quick and easy. With proper care, you can have an established lawn in as little as 90 days

UC Verde Buffalo grass Plugs are all sold by the tray. There are 72 plugs in each tray.
