Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Melinda-Baffalo grass is know to many of us in the U.S. as St. Augustine Grass. St. Augustine grass does well in my location in hardiness zones 9 and 10 but does not do well in colder locations. You being in zone 6a would most likely be using what is actually called buffalo grass (Buchloe dactyloides - Buffalo Grass) in the colder hardiness zones. You should be able to find some sod farms on the internet that will sell the pre-rooted plugs. Many quality nurseries and garden centers in your area will sell this Buffalo Grass in flats or trays similar to those used for annual flowers. There are different varieties of the Buffalo grass that have been developed for specific hardiness zones. I found one site that sells a couple of varieties and should know what would be best for your location. I have never use this site but just one of many I felt may be of help. The Legacy variety of Buffalo grass seems to be the most popular for the northern states and may be the grass you are growing. I noted a link to an article that may be of help in determining what grass you may have and what variety may be best for your location.

Thanks so much. We have an awesome turf farm in our city and that's where we buy our sod a few times a year, we're doing small sections at a time. In fact, it's the place I used the last time, they pointed me where to go for the plugs, but it doesn't look like they do that now.
