Turf Varieties

Over the last 23 years we have grown over 23 different varieties of grasses, ranging from Soft Leaf Buffalo, Zoysia, Paspalums, Queensland Blue, Carpet Grass, Centipede, Kikuyu and various varieties of Green Couch. Most of these grasses proved to be inadequate for the domestic home. Some of the problems for the home owner have been weed infestation, insect and fungal damage, water requirements and poor appearance. If you have a fair amount of turf knowledge, time and effort many of these problems could be controlled, however time is precious.

 

In 23 years of growing, supplying and maintaining lawns we have found one lawn that has proved itself and had an excellent home owner approval rating, ‘Sir Walter’.

 

‘Sir Walter’ is Australia’s most popular lawn choice and has more than 26% of the domestic market, which is increasing every year.

 

Turf VarietiesDaleys Turf is the leading producer of Australia’s favourite lawn ‘Sir Walter’ on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
‘Sir Walter’ has now become the most sought after grass on the coast and it is because of it’s excellent suitability to our coastal environment. Coupled with the fact that it was found and developed in the Hunter Valley, N.S.W. it is Australia’s only native licensed premium lawn turf that comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity”.

Nullarbor Couch

Nullarbor Couch

Turf VarietiesThere are many types of green couches on the market today and we have grown quite a few of them, with our experience we find there is little difference between them, so now we only grow the one variety which is Nullarbor Couch. This is a hybrid variety developed for the sports fields, but as it grows very quickly here in Queensland we are able to grow several crops per year, which makes it a cheaper grass variety and hence it’s used widely in the building trade. shade ability and attraction to army worm doesn’t make it entirely suitable for the domestic situation.

Turf Varieties

  • Harding wearing suitable for sports fields & schools
  • Drought tolerant
  • Fine leaf texture
  • Likes to be mown very short
  • Cost effective for large areas
  • Excellent chemical tolerance

Platinum Zoysia Grass

If a finer blade grass is your preference, then go no further than Platinum Zoysia Grass. Selected by Lawn Solutions Australia as an excellent performing lawn grass, hardy Platinum Zoysia is well-adapted to tropical, sub-tropical and warm temperate climates in Australia.

A fine grass with good winter colour

shade

Platinum Zoysia Grass has a relatively fine leaf up to 5mm wide and 40-50mm long which is soft to touch, provides excellent wear tolerance and thrives in extreme heat and humidity. It performs fairly well in the shade and keeps good winter colour and it can generally outcompete weeds once established. Platinum Zoysia requires less watering & less mowing than most other lawn types in Australia.

Well adapted to tropical and warm climates

water

Zoysias are warm season grasses and are well adapted to tropical, sub-tropical and warm temperate conditions by having the ability to roll its leaves to conserve water. This increases its drought tolerance which is a trait normally only exhibited in broader leafed grass varieties.

A great low maintenance lawn
