Sir Grange Turf

Sir Grange turf, otherwise known as Sir Grange Zoysia or Sir Grange, was created at Bladerunner Farms in Texas, USA under the name ‘Zeon Zoysia’. Chosen from over 10,000 other varieties, Sir Grange was originally created with golf courses in mind but, after considering all its beneficial characteristics, it was deemed great for residential use too. Sir Grange is what is known as a Zoysia Matrella, being one of the slowest growing turf leaf options currently available on the market.

Advantages

  • Low mowing requirements as slow leaf growth rate.
  • Heat and shade resistant, due to great adaptation to different climates.
  • Dense vertical growth results in high surface strength and visual appeal.
  • Drought tolerant.
  • Low maintenance turf variety.
  • Strong leaf blades due to high levels of silicon.
  • Naturally resistant to both diseases and pests.
  • Weed resistant.
  • Soft and densely mattered, so great for barefoot walking.

TifTuf Turf

TifTuf, commonly called TifTuf Bermuda or TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda, is a lawn variety that was created in the USA after 25+ years of testing and development. Chosen from over 30,000 other options, TifTuf is another great choice for residential lawns, as well as sports fields and golf courses.

Advantages

  • Wear tolerant, due to dense growth.
  • Better simulation of photosynthesis – results in requiring 50% less sunlight than other Couch grass options.
  • Weed tolerant.
  • Both pest and disease tolerant.
  • Drought tolerant, requiring less water than other varieties.
  • Colour retention all year round.
