Does Sir Walter Grow in Shade?

Shade in Australia

While much of Australia is sunny you may have areas of shade you want to place Sir Walter. It is a good grass for shady areas, especially if you follow a few tips.

Some Light is Needed

You do need some light so make sure the lawn gets some light even if it is filtered. Be sure and rake any leaf build up from under trees so that the grass can get all the light available.

More Tips

Keep traffic to a minimum in shady areas as it wears quicker. It can also thin out in the winter quicker than in other areas of the lawn. Keep it watered, fertilised and your Sir Walter turf should do just fine in the areas of shade on your lawn.
