  • Sir Walter Buffalo Grass

    Developed and bred locally to survive our extreme climates – Sir Walter Buffalo Turf is quintessential Australian turf.

THE GO ANYWHERE, GROW ANYWHERE TURF

Sir Walter DNA Certified turf has stood the test of time. Extremely tough, this buffalo grass has proven that it can grow anywhere- whether it be in full sun or shade, extreme heat, frost or drought. Buffalo grass born and bred here in Australia, Sir Walter was made to be the right turf for most Australian climates in residential and commercial properties – 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 turfs in the country.

When you 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 DNA Certified Buffalo grass is the perfect variety for you.

  • How Does Sir Walter Buffalo DNA Certified Turf Perform?

    Few types of grass surpass Sir Walter when it comes to Australian climates. Bred for both full sun and frosty winters, this buffalo variety performs extremely well in unpredictable and extreme climates. With a high shade tolerance and a good 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 other grasses would. Additionally, this high-quality turf product will maintain a good winter colour and dense growth year-round so you will never have to put up with a brown lawn.

    The tight growth habit holds its shape and density so your lawn will be weed resistant, a lush green colour, and practice quick self-repair – ticking all the right boxes for an ideal Australian lawn.

    Maintaining Sir Walter Buffalo 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.

    Its tight growth habit will combat any weeds that try to go through and disrupt your grass. It grows slower than other buffalo varieties, meaning you will spend less time outside mowing your lawn.

    • The usual roll size is 1.7 metres long and 0.6 metres wide (totalling 1 square metre). The weight will vary from 10 kg to 15 kg depending on variety and weather. 

    • I don’t have time to lay Sir Walter, can you help?

      Depending on availability – your turf can be delivered as soon as the next day from when you place your order.

    • What type of grass is Sir Walter?
    • Our Sir Walter DNA Certified Turf is part of the Buffalo grass family. Naturalised here in Australia, this Buffalo variety is perfect for the Australian weather.

    • HOW DO I TOP-DRESS SIR WALTER DNA CERTIFIED BUFFALO LAWN?
    • When it comes to top-dressing your Sir Walter lawn, we recommend spreading a light covering of a sandy base top-dressing across your lawn with a shovel and give it a good watering. This should be done during the active season when your grass is growing.

      For turf supplies such as top-dressing, speak to our friendly staff and we can help you find the best quality supplies for your lawn.

    • HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH TURF SUPPLIES TO ORDER?

      Our turf is available in square metres to make even the smallest lawn beautiful and simple to create.

    • DO I HAVE TO LAY THE LAWN IMMEDIATELY?
    • Turf is a plant just like any other so it does require immediate planting once it arrives so it can quickly settle into its new home. In particular, the turf will need to be paired up with its topsoil and water.

    • CAN YOU SUPPLY TURF ALL YEAR ROUND?
    • Yes, we can. We have a constant supply of water and sunlight on our farms. Your shade-tolerant/drought-tolerant lawn won’t need to use its defence mechanisms under our premium growing conditions.

    • WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO LAY OUR NEW LAWN?
    • Your new lawn can be laid at any time of the year but is best to lay between summer and winter.

      If the lawn is laid in hot weather – it will take root quicker yet require more water to thrive.
