Do You Know Your Varieties of Turf Grass?

September 1, 2016

Everyone wants a lush, deep green lawn. It’s one of the finer things in life and it’s something to take pride in. It will get the neighbours talking and you’ll be the envy of the passer-by. But there’s a bit more than just wishing and hoping when it comes to getting the best lawn. You need to choose the best grass and the best grass will depend on where you live, and how much you want to invest.

Installing a beautiful pure variety lawn such as Empire Zoysia or Sir Walter is not expensive. You will benefit from enjoying it every day and it will seriously add value to your home.

Let’s check out some of the different varieties of turf grass.

Zoysia Turf Grass

This majestic turf is a soft, deep-green grass that is quite easy to install and care for. In fact, it sometimes gets called the “no mow lawn”! This turf grows neatly, slowly and steadily. It’s a perfect choice for lawn in Brisbane. You’ll only need to mow it once every month or so. This means you have more money to spend and more time to do the things you’d rather do.

Zoysia is also tough and durable. It can handle the fluctuations in the Australian climate, and is resistant to pests and weeds.

Sir Walter Turf

Sir Walter is a soft buffalo grass that is becoming more and more popular among Brisbane households. It is good looking and is soft underfoot. This makes it an ideal choice for those with young kids or those who love the feel of grass beneath their feet.

Sir Walter can withstand the high Brisbane temperatures, as well as being tough enough to handle the rare cold snaps. It’s also drought resistant, making it the ideal choice for those living in drier areas of the state. Sir Walter will also knit your soil together, stopping the process of erosion and keeping it safe from wild winds.

Oz Tuff

Oz Tuff is our signature green tough couch turf. It’s a hardy and versatile couch that has a deep green tone and looks amazing. It’s named for its high salt tolerance, making it ideal for those who live on the beachfront. Where other grass will stunt, wilt or turn yellow, this sturdy grass will flourish and hold its colour.

Like Zoysia, you won’t need to mow this couch grass often. It can also thrive in poor quality soil, which means you’ll be saving a heap of money and time on the fertilisation process.

Wintergreen Couch

This is a great choice for the Brisbane home with turf or a commercial lawn. Wintergreen Couch will need full exposure to sunlight to thrive and survive, so avoid it in shady areas. It has a lovely, medium green colour. It is hardy and it requires a medium level of maintenance.
