There’s not much point in growing beautiful, lush green grass that nobody is allowed to step on. Backyards are supposed to be enjoyed. Parties should be laid out on the grass and dogs and children should be free to roam and kick a ball. But most of all, this should be done without having to worry about losing all of the hard work you’ve put into growing and maintaining your turf. This is why it’s important to find a turf that’s going to suit your traffic needs.

If you’re planning on making the most out of your turf then you want to make sure the turf you install is suitable for high foot traffic areas. Here are some grasses you might like to consider:

Nullarbor Couch Oz Tuff 

Tough is exactly what this couch variety is. Because it’s so fast growing, Nullarbor Couch Oz Tuff can quickly repair itself from damage. Its leaf may be fine but with so many runners underneath, it can be quite strong and hardy, with the ability to withstand high traffic. As long as it’s mowed and fertilised regularly and given the water it needs, Oz Tuff will see you through the busiest, most high-traffic days for your lawn. Consider Oz Tuff if you have an active outdoor life. From children and pets to entertaining and backyard sports, this tough, lush turf is ideal.

Platinum Zoysia 

Platinum Zoysia is a dream lawn that can handle a pretty considerable amount of wear and tear. It can take a little bit of time to self-repair, but when it does, it does so extremely well. Platinum Zoysia is suitable if you have very high traffic on your lawn every now and then. Otherwise, it can cope with medium levels of traffic consistently. Hosting a one-off outdoor party or living with curious young kids? Platinum Zoysia will do the job and it has plenty of other benefits, too! 

Sir Walter Turf 

Buffalo grass is always seen as a tough variety and Sir Walter Buffalo is the most premium of them all. With its deep root system and extensive testing under Aussie conditions, it’s a great lawn that can cope with high volumes of traffic. From children to dogs and more, this born and bred Australian turf will keep up with the local lifestyle. Just make sure the Sir Walter turf you buy is DNA certified and not a cheaper imitation of the product. 

Make high traffic lawn supplies a regular fixture in your garden. Even if you don’t have an especially busy garden, you can enjoy plenty of other benefits from this extra hardiness.
