Turfs Are Not Turfs
In years gone by there was only really one type of turf in Australia and it was called grass. Times have changed and we now have a range of turf varieties on the market but they are not all created equal. ‘Turf’ includes those of the synthetic or artificial variety but they are not turfs as we classify them. To the Daleys Turf team, turf varieties are those natural grasses designed and cultivated to grow in the Queensland climate and provide years of enjoyment to owners.
We never recommend installing an artificial turf due to the high temperatures they reach, unhealthy state if not cleaned and sanitised on a regular basis and the chemicals they contain.
“SIR WALTER” – The Best Value For Your Money
Most Aussies have heard of Sir Walter premium soft leaf Buffalo lawn turf, partly thanks to a very successful marketing campaign, and partly thanks to its undeniable advantages for the Australian soil and climate.
Sir Walter was created in Australia and has excellent drought tolerance compared to other buffalos. It’s a soft, dark-green buffalo grass that is resilient to both our summer and winter climates.
Sir Walter maintains its colour year round with very little attention, requiring less water and less spraying than other grasses. It’s also less invasive and needs less mowing than other buffalos, is less prone to fungus and herbicides and is softer for children to play on (gone are the days of the itchy Buffalo lawn).
Sir Walter is ideal for every backyard and it is now the most popular turf in the country.
Recently Sir Walter reached a new milestone; 60 million square metres of turf installed.
This has made Sir Walter the biggest selling turf variety per-capita in the world and definitely Australia’s most popular lawn.
Many people assume that an instant lawn is the most expensive of all the options for outdoor grounds, but is it really?
According to the Landscape Association of NSW, and based on residential applications the following figures can be compared. These costs include site preparation, underlay, soil, surface preparation, material supply and installation.

While you can now see that lawn is a comparable option, financially, it pays to also look a little deeper and consider the additional benefits that a natural lawn has over and above the other choices.
- Natural turf acts as a water and dust filter
- Turf is an efficient and effective form of erosion control
- Grass captures and uses greenhouse gases
- Turf serves as a natural air-conditioner and fire break
- Lawn serves to increase a property’s value – homes with well-maintained landscapes sell faster and for higher values
- Lawns provide therapeutic benefits
- Lawns provide a safer environment – they help to absorb physical impact, provide traction, and offer cushioning (aka great for kid’s play areas)
Lawns also provide a wealth of benefits to rental and commercial properties and community spaces such as sporting fields, parks, schools and day care centres.
