A toast to the Great Australian Lawn

Posted on February 26, 2021 by Greg Pelka

The lawns of Australia have seen many things – from great games of backyard cricket to BBQs that last late into the evening, your backyard has played host to some memorable (and perhaps not so memorable) happenings in your life. But whether you are playing a game of fetch with your furry best friend or celebrating a family milestone, your lawn deserves a toast or three as a place of comfort and togetherness for you and those around you. Newer turf varieties like TifTuf and some older favourites like the quintessential Sir Walter have all played a substantial part in facilitating our favourite backyard social activities…

So, here’s a toast to the Great Australian Lawn!

The Australian Backyard BBQ

One of the most important events that take place in your backyard is the backyard BBQ – yum! For generations, people have gathered around the grill for a meal like no other and, while you are at it, it’s the perfect time to sit and admire your lawn. And tell people about it too.

And, once the sausages are cooked and perched in your bread (how that should be done is a discussion for another day), sitting on the grass is the best place to be, as things can get a little messy.

The Australian Backyard Cricket Pitch

Admit it – you’ve likely played a sneaky game of cricket or three in your backyard at some point, with the cricket pitch providing the crucial component to any backyard cricket match. Remember though, your lawn is the unspoken hero of the game, providing you the best field to play on! Playing a game of cricket in the backyard is a great way to connect back with your family and friends and bring out the competitive rivalry… or maybe a sore loser.

If you are wondering how to create a cricket pitch in your backyard, Lawn Solutions Australia have a great how-to guide here.

The Australian Garden

Finally, it isn’t just the Aussie lawn we have to thank – it’s the garden too. Our garden is a wonderful way to express ourselves and your lawn is the final piece to tie it all together. Gardening and tending to your lawn are not only great hobbies to enjoy, but you can increase the value of your property in the process.

Better yet, once you get both your lawn and your garden looking their best, you can show them off to your family and friends… and maybe even upstage your neighbours! 

Our lawns are a great way for our family and friends to connect with each other all year round. They provide the perfect space for relaxing after a day’s work, teaching your kids about nature and insects that live in the garden and provide a space for our fur babies to stretch their legs, be entertained and explore the many sniffs on offer.

But whether your backyard cricket pitch is using TifTuf, your garden is hedged by Sir Grange or you have a backyard classic in Sir Walter, hopefully your lawn will continue to grow and thrive with you and your family.

To the Aussie lawn!
