Over the last 24 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.
