Planted Legacy Buffalo Grass plugs last year. This stuff really thrives in our heavy clay soil and hot, dry summers. Currently watering it 20-minutes per week and it is thriving. I still have conventional turf in one of my zones and it is turning brown with 60-minutes of water per week.

Beautiful grass that doesn't want to be mowed, watered and wants only a little fertilizer. Good lawn turf that crowds out weeds because it's tall and it doesn't want much water (an 1" a month). Occassional non-allergenic seed heads if watered or fertilized too much. Lawn color is more blueish green than dark green. Handles OK heat in full sun.
