Habiturf™ Native Lawn Mix

Habiturf™ Native Lawn Mix


Developed in conjunction with the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Habiturf simulates shortgrass prairies. Yet, Habiturf provides all the visual beauty of a uniform lawn stand with the drought-tolerance and low maintenance of native Texas grasses. Heartiness is achieved through the use of multiple species, but the uniformity of the leaves and color make for a lush, beautiful lawn. 

Habiturf has been observed to outperform Bermudagrass in terms of establishment rates, turf thickness, mowing rates, and weed resistance. Grass should be mowed every 3 to 5 weeks (when growing) at a height of 3 to 4 inches. This mix requires less water than traditional lawn grasses, reasonable resistance to foot traffic, and little to no herbicide application or fertilization. A portion of all sales will be donated to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. To see what it looks like planted, take a look at the George W. Bush Center, they have 8 acres of Habiturf.
