  2. Bob,

    Drove by your house today and have a ? on a plant in your grass strip. There is a low-growing, very green plant, approx 18″ in diameter and about 12″ high. What is the name of that plant and how high and wide does it get? Also, where did you get the buffalo grass sod. Thanks.

    • Hi Joe, The plant you are referencing is Sanolina. It comes in a green and a silver form (different species). It gets possibly up to 18″ tall and spreads to about 2′ wide and is evergreen, very winter hardy and heat tolerant. The Buffalo grass sod I got at King Ranch Turfgrass on McNeil Rd. near 183.
