Palmetto ®

Home › Turf Varieties › Palmetto


is the number one highest-selling buffalo grass in the world, and one that thrives in South East Queensland and across Australia. Palmetto lawns are mostly noted for their shade tolerance, but also its ability to deal with everyday wear like kids and dogs, making it the number one choice for the family home owner. Palmetto demonstrates superior shade, wear, drought tolerance and easy maintenance when compared to other soft-leaf buffalo grass varieties. Palmetto is a tight knit, dense and compact variety with a beautiful soft leaf that holds its emerald green colour year-round.
