Turf varieties

There are various turf grass varieties available that cater for different purposes and outcomes and we have covered a few major types below.

Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass

Since 1997 there has been more than 60 million metres of Sir Walter Buffalo grass sold across Australia – that’s the equivalent of 500,000 homes. This versatile grass is hardy, shade, heat, frost and drought resistant, which makes it a very popular choice. Its broad leaf thrives in shady areas with as little as 3 hours of sunlight. Other benefits include:

  • Great for kids and pets.
  • Fast repairing lawn.
  • Soft texture.
  • Wear and tear tolerant.
  • Low maintenance.

If you are searching for a turf that will grow anywhere, Sir Walter is the Australian product you need. It is bred to be tough against extreme conditions and requires very little mowing and fertilising throughout the year, making it a great choice for busy households.

Sir Grange Zoysia Turf
