Buffalo Grass

With customer satisfaction being our highest priority, as of March 2018, Rock N Dirt Yard will no longer sell any sod due to quality control issues with our supplier.  We have high standards for the products we sell at Rock N Dirt Yard and currently cannot stand behind the sod we are receiving.  Until such a time that we can obtain a reputable supplier, no sod will be available at the Rock N Dirt Yard.  Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.


609 buffalograss is a native blue-green, dense, fine-textured, stoloniferous turf. Compared to Prairie, 609 is more dense and has a richer, deep blue-green color, and ranks as a top turf-type buffalograss in the market for high-end users. Because of its slower growth rate and drought tolerance, buffalograss requires less water than other turfgrasses. 609 is recommended in rainfall areas of 30 inches or less.

Mowing Height: 1”-4”
Prairie is a native, fine-textured, granny smith apple green buffalograss that is adaptable to many climates. This stoloniferous grass has a natural uniform appearance and good density that produces a thick turf carpet. Prairie has a slow rate of spread and will attain a mature non-mowed height between 4-6 inches and at maturity requires infrequent supplemental irrigation to maintain quality turf. It is recommended for use as a minimal maintenance turfgrass for roadsides, industrial parks and non-irrigated landscape sites. It grows best in soils with high clay content and is not recommended for sandy soil sites. Prairie buffalograss is a female cultivar of the species Buchloe dactyloides (Mutt). Engelm., selected and developed for its turf-type characteristics. It creates a grannie smith apple green, dense, fine-textured, stoloniferous turf. It is propagated vegetatively by sod, sprigs, or plugs. Prairie buffalograss spreads faster, is more dense, and creates a more uniform higher quality turf than other commercially available buffalograss cultivars. Under normal recommended management practices, Prairie buffalograss will attain a mature non-mowed plant height between 4 and 6 inches. Its optimum mowing height ranges from 1.5 to 2 inches for highest quality turf. Mature, fully established, and properly managed Prairie buffalograss turf is competitive against weeds. Prairie buffalograss is responsive to low levels of nitrogen fertilization (1 to 3 pounds of actual N per 1,000 square feet of area will provide acceptable quality turf). Color, competitive growth habit, and mature height are dependent on the level of fertilization provided. The area of adaptation for Prairie buffalograss extends from the South Texas Plains to Nebraska, with good turf persistence reported in Kansas, Illinois, California, Georgia, and Florida. Prairie will perform best on soils with a high clay content and with a neutral to alkaline soil pH.

    What is the pricing for the 609 Buffalo delivered to 15 Honeysuckle Lane (Google Maps has it as Honeysuckle Street) Wimberley, 78676. I would need about 5 pallets of it when ready for it. Also, looking to get some rock delivered.

    Hey Rock guys, love the site and I can’t wait to do business with you!

    I want to put down some buffalo grass turf. Is September or October a better month to plant/roll out turf?

    I’ll be by in the next couple of days to purchase rocks for my new rock garden!

      Hi Tim,
      Thanks a bunch for the kind words of encouragement!

      As far as putting down the grass either month will be good as long as you water a bunch at first. Give our grass specialist Marcus a call at 799-4734 to discuss the matter further or come on by and we can talk about grass and your rock garden at the shop. We look forward to it. Thanks again, The Rock Guys
