Choosing the best grass

When it comes to choosing your new turf, it’s best to know what lies below the surface, so you know what will grow better on top.

Some grass types such as WinterGreen Couch prefer a clay-based area to grow and Buffalo varieties including Prestige and Sapphire also do well in clay.

When it comes to sandy soil areas, Empire Zoysia is the best choice, particularly with its high drought tolerance and deep root and underground runner system.

Further advantages to laying Empire Zoysia:

  • it grows Australia-wide.
  • low maintenance and easy to look after.
  • doesn’t like too much water.
  • has a relatively fine leaf which is soft to touch.
  • excellent wear tolerance, especially if your yard sees a bit of traffic.
  • thrives in extreme heat and humidity.
  • grows well in coastal regions due to its salt tolerance.
  • good resistance to insects and diseases.
  • ideal grass for residential yards, sloped areas, parks, sports fields, golf courses, childcare centres etc.
  • handles shady areas well.
  • less mowing.
  • keeps a good winter colour.
