Albert Valley Soft Leaf Buffalo runners rapidly grow across the ground which enable it to repair quickly and recover from high traffic and stressful situations. The runners grow like a tight knitted mat restricting and out competing weeds leaving very little room for them to grow through. Albert Valley Buffalo has also been proven to be less thatchy and spongy like most other Buffalo varieties.

Albert Valley Buffalo is a slower growing buffalo grass, which will require less lawn mowing and maintenance than most other buffalo types. It requires mowing every 5-10 days in summer and every 3-6 weeks in winter. The recommended mowing height is 2-5cm in sunny conditions and 5-7cm in shaded conditions.
