There are various turf grass varieties available that cater for different purposes and outcomes and we have covered a few major types below.
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:
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 has been hand selected from over 10,000 different varieties of turf, with its superior qualities making it stand out from the crowd. Available exclusively from Lawn Solutions Australia members (like Rosemount Turf!), you can be sure Sir Grange has been tried and tested to stand up to whatever the Aussie climate can throw at it. Benefits include:
Note however that in some areas it is not recommended to install Sir Grange between May and September, this is climate dependant. Please contact your local Lawn Solutions Australia member to discuss installing Sir Grange in your area.
TifTuf Bermuda is the product of nearly 25 years of research and development by one of the oldest universities in the United States, the University of Georgia. TifTuf was hand selected from 30,000 different Bermuda varieties for showing superior qualities. Benefits include:
TifTuf is a great choice for your backyard, due to its high tolerance to wear and tear!
Empire Zoysia was discovered in Brazil, and unlike other Zoysia varieties, has proven its ability to thrive in hot and humid conditions. It performs well in sandy and clay soil types, is very water efficient and requires less maintenance and mowing than other grass varieties. Other benefits include:
Australian research has shown that Empire Zoysia requires less mowing than other turf varieties and competes well against weeds, as well as handling extreme conditions with very little watering. Sounds like a great choice for your backyard!
