With a reputation for holding out the majority of weeds and pests, you’ll be happy to know Sir Walter turf isn’t just recognised for its luscious green looks. Due to its tight growth habit, a Sir Walter lawn is mostly pest and weed resistant, less prone to lawn problems compared to other varieties.
Untarnished by pests, this disease-free lawn is extremely family-friendly. With little chance of bindii encounters, you will feel relieved knowing your kids can run around barefoot without any issues.
While it is sturdy and generally known for its minimal vulnerability to turf diseases, Sir Walter
can sometimes fall victim to lawn diseases.
Dollar Spot is one of the most common lawn diseases to have an effect on Sir Walter grass. It is known to appear in between spring and autumn.

A turf disease that is easily identified by its namesake, patches of brown or dead grass will appear. In order to prevent this disease from invading your Sir Walter, it is recommended you apply a slow-release fertiliser and aerate your soil.
