How do I tell turf varieties apart?

As there are many different turf varieties available to consumers in Australia, you’d be excused if you couldn’t tell them all apart…. Even the one that is in your own backyard!

To help you identify some of the options available, we have put together a little guide for three of the types we sell at Rosemount Turf - Soft Leaf Buffalo (Sir Walter DNA Certified Turf), Zoysia Matrella Grass (Sir Grange) and Hybrid Bermuda (TifTuf). Keep reading or contact us for further information.

How do I identify different turf varieties?

Soft Leaf Buffalo

Soft-Leaf Buffalo has a broader leaf blade, is highly durable, easy to maintain and new varieties are soft to touch in comparison to older scratchy varieties. Its key traits are:

  • Weed resistant.
  • Low maintenance.
  • High shade tolerance.

The Soft-Leaf Buffalo variety that Rosemount Turf sells is Sir Walter DNA Certified Soft Leaf Buffalo, which looks something like this:

Zoysia Matrella Grass

Zoysia Matrella Grass has a thin leaf blade, tapering along the blade to a tip. It also has a dense growth providing it with a high wear resistance. Its key traits include:

  • Super high drought resistance.
  • High wear resistance.
  • Very high shade tolerance.

The Zoysia Matrella Grass that Rosemount Turf sells is Sir Grange Zoysia, which looks something like this:

Hybrid Bermuda (Hybrid Couch Grass)

Last, but certainly not least, is Hybrid Bermuda Grass. Hybrid Bermudas have a very fine leaf, being both quick growing and highly invasive. It also requires regular mowing, making it an ideal sporting surface as it can be cut quite short. The key traits of Hybrid Bermuda grass includes:

  • Very high wear resistance.
  • High drought resistance.
  • High maintenance.

The Hybrid Couch Grass that Rosemount Turf sells is TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda, which looks a little something like this:
