Today I laid some velvet buffalo turf, the first time in a while I’ve been asked to do so.
The client had some Sir Walter already laid so I took a photo and you can see the difference. In the pic above, the velvet is in the foreground while the Sir W is up the back along the fence and below its reversed.
The Sir Walter has a much brighter green hue while the velvet is more of a dull green. Sir Walter is a broader leaf and the velvet a little finer.
Both lawns look great and I wouldn’t recommend one over the other. It all comes down to personal preference… Personally i like the finer leaf of the velvet but with the colour of the Sir Walter…
