Eureka Kikuyu is a popular drought tolerant grass suitable for warmer climates. A vigorous grower that loves full sun (requires at least 6 hours) and is perfect for high traffic areas. It has a high ability to self-repair so is the best choice for kids or dogs. Aggressive grass and the runners will make their way underground and subsequently into garden beds and under paths if not kept under control.
Formerly known as Santa Ana Couch, is widely used in back yards and golf courses across Australia.
Nullarbor Couch has a fine leaf, is drought tolerant and loves the sun. It will not do well in the shade.
This is a warm season grass and will lose a lot of colour in Winter.
Sir Walter Buffalo has above-ground runners which makes it quick repairing and our most popular selling turf.
This variety of turf thrives best with at least 3 hours of direct sunlight as it is a drought tolerant variety. It may lose some colour in the winter, best not to cut it when coming into the colder months.
RTF – Tall Fescue
Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF) has been developed as a beautiful grass. Best results achieved with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.
This is a cool season grass that will need more water and care than other varieties of turf.
