Sir Walter is Sydney's favourite lawn. It is a soft leaf buffalo variety, but this unique family lawn turf is different from any home lawn variety that you have come across before.
A natural selection, it was born and bred under tough Australian conditions. This unique heritage makes Sir Walter better suited to our Aussie environment and better able to stand the very different challenges of our harsh climate. Sir Walter is suitable for lawns all around Australia.
A creeping broad leaf variety of lawn, it is easily contained as it only creeps across the surface area (not sub-surface). Sir Walter will tolerate heavy traffic, including pets, and is extremely drought tolerant. It grows well in both full sun and shady spots being able to tolerate up to 70% shade.
Shademaster was the first soft leaf buffalo available and originated in the NSW Hunter Valley in the mid 1980s. It is a broad leaf buffalo type with a soft velvety leaf, similar in appearance to traditional buffalo, but has a somewhat rougher texture than Sir Walter.
Shademaster has vigorous growth properties. It is a fast growing buffalo handling high traffic areas with moderate to good shade tolerance and reasonable drought tolerance.
Shademaster is a beautiful green colour from late spring to autumn. During the winter months it goes dormant and develops a maroon tinge.
Shademaster grows into a thick, hard wearing, yet lush mat which helps to inhibit the germination of weeds.
Wintergreen is a hybrid couch, blue-green in colour, with a fine, dense, soft leaf texture and reasonable colour retention under low winter temperatures.
Wintergreen has a deep root system and a hard wearing surface with a soft leaf texture
