All of the attributes that make Sir Grange a favourite with golf course superintendents also make it perfect for home lawns. Its slow growth rate means less mowing and far lower fertiliser and water requirements. Studies have shown it to use 75% less fertiliser than other common turf varieties. And last but not least Sir Grange’s shade tolerance has made it an on course favourite, growing lush and green right up to the base of trees. Perfect for modern shaded backyards.

TifTuf Bermuda has the look of a couch grass, but with the performance of a sports turf. Specifically bred for low water usage, TifTuf is perfect for water restrictions, using 38% less water than other varieties it is perfect for Australian lawns.
Water usage isn’t its only strength with incredible winter colour a very welcome attribute when most lawns turn yellow in the cooler months. While not as shade tolerant as Sir Walter or Sir Grange it does have some moderate shade tolerance making it a very versatile lawn grass.
