3 hardy breeds of grass for your garden

There are many homeowners in Sydney that have either very little experience or very little time to tend to their lawn, which can lead to the deterioration of the garden. However, there are many types of grass which have been bred with the modern homeowner in mind and are both extremely resilient and aesthetically-pleasing. From Zoysia to Bermuda, here are some particularly hardy breeds to consider if you don’t have a green thumb.

Sir Grange

If you’re looking for a breed of grass that has very small water and nutritional requirements, look no further than Sir Grange. Sir Grange is the best-selling breed of Zoysia in North America and this hardy turf has come to win the favour of the Australian homeowner for its many tolerances, its soft texture and its fine, deep green leaf.

The reason for Sir Grange having these traits is because it was bred to be a turf used for golf courses, meaning it needed to be a low maintenance grass that could maintain its appearance. In order to maintain your Sir Grange lawn, it just needs to be fertilised yearly, and cut to a short length when it gets too long.

TifTuf Bermuda Grass

If you want a brilliant-looking turf that retains its brilliant appearance all year around with minimum maintenance, TifTuf Bermuda grass is for you. This breed of turf was chosen from 30,000 other varieties of Bermuda for its appearance and its hardiness and was the result of a 25-year research and development project.

TifTuf Bermuda boasts many qualities that allow it to be a low-maintenance grass, including requiring far less water than other turf varieties, a brilliant tolerance to many different kinds of weather and miraculous self-repairing qualities if it does happen to sustain any damage. If you’re looking for a type of lawn which needs very little care in order to keep healthy, think TifTuf Bermuda.

Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Turf

If you want a lawn that’s been bred to thrive within the unpredictable and unforgiving Australian weather, you need a grass that’s been bred to thrive within those conditions. Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Turf is the quintessential Australian grass, having undergone years of research and development to acquire resistances to many different aspects of the Australian environment whilst still maintaining a lush, soft leaf.

This brilliant breed of grass is designed to adapt to whatever climate it’s been placed in and can repair itself if it happens to sustain any damage. Whether you need a residential or a commercial lawn solution, if you’re looking for a grass that’s been developed in Australia for Australian conditions, choose Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo turf.
