The Best Type of Lawn for Your Climate

April 12, 2017

Choosing the right lawn for your climate can be tough! You don’t want to install a beautiful turf only to find that it has died off or is looking patchy just six months later. Despite your best maintenance efforts, this could happen simply because the grass you chose didn’t suit your climate.

Installing turf is a big job and something you only want to do once. If you’re looking for the best type of lawn for your climate, here are a few options for Australia’s many seasons:

Platinum Zoysia Turf Grass

Platinum Zoysia is a lawn that is perfect for tropical, sub-tropical and warm climates. It’s ideal for Brisbane, the Gold Coast and other areas of Queensland. Even though Platinum Zoysia’s leaf is soft to touch and of a finer blade, it still manages to retain its water well. This makes it just as hardy, if not hardier than broad-leaf varieties.

Sir Walter Turf

Sir Walter DNA Certified Lawn is a soft buffalo grass that has high durability and is completely low maintenance. It was cultivated for harsh Australian climates, meaning it can easily withstand Queensland’s hot spots. It’s got a high drought resistance, making it suitable for country areas as well as areas that have long periods between heavy rains.

Sir Walter Lawn that is DNA certified has been proven to be a Sir Walter product. Other products may be cheap imitations, so ensure you only purchase Sir Walter turf from a Lawn Solutions Australia (LSA) member.

Nullarbor Couch Oz Tuff

Oz Tuff turf comes in a green couch variety. It grows slowly with a deep green colour and it has a high salt tolerance, making it ideal for coastal applications. It also has an extensive root system which is deeper and stronger than other couch varieties, making it perfect for hotter climates. If you live by the coast and need a lawn that can handle high salinity, Nullarbor Couch Oz Tuff is definitely the right choice for you.

Clean Green Turf

Clean Green Turf uses the application of biological organisms and nutrients to develop the turf. This is a type of bio-technology as it improves the quality of the turf and soil without using synthetic chemicals. Clean Green Turf is available in Platinum Zoysia, Sir Walter DNA and Nullarbor Couch lawn varieties. It’s suitable for all the climates that these turf varieties thrive in.
