  • Sir Walter Buffalo Turf

    Developed and bred locally to survive our extreme climates, Sir Walter DNA Certified is the quintessential Australian turf perfect for residential properties large and small.


Sir Walter DNA Certified turf has stood the test of time. Extremely tough, this turf has proven that it can go and grow anywhere- whether it be in full sun or shade, in extreme heat, frost or drought. Naturalised here in Australia, Sir Walter was made to be the ultimate Australian Buffalo Turf – bred to be sturdy yet soft and good looking to boot! Since 1997, there have been over 50 million metres of this buffalo turf sold Australia wide – which makes it one of the most preferred lawn turf in the country.

When your purchase Sir Walter Buffalo turf, you’re not just buying a new lawn, you’re buying a whole new way of life. No longer will you be playing a game of backyard footy to end up with a knee full of bindii, or diving for that superb catch only to finish with a mouthful of dirt. This grass is lush and green, with a tight growth habit to hold out most weeds and pests. Better yet, it repairs itself quickly if damaged, lessening the incidence of bare patches. If you are looking for a go-anywhere, grow-anywhere turf, then Sir Walter is the perfect variety for you.

  • How Does Sir Walter Buffalo Perform?

    Bred for Australian lawns, this buffalo variety performs extremely well in unpredictable and extreme climates. With a good salt tolerance and a high drought tolerance, this lawn is sure to perform well in all seasons no matter where the property is located.

    Offering a soft lush green appearance and texture, this buffalo variety will adapt better to the hot sun and drought conditions commonly experienced in summer than the average Kikuyu turf would.

    Maintaining Sir Walter Lawns

    When it comes to maintaining your Sir Walter, you will find you have less to maintain than you would with other varieties. From the amount of watering it needs to the overall pest management,this turf will need less of your time.

    As it is highly weed and pest resistant, its tight growth habit will combat any weeds that try to go through and disrupt your grass. It will also grow slower than the average Couch turf, meaning you will spend less time outside mowing your lawn.
