When it comes to choosing the right turf for your backyard doing a little bit of research and homework makes all the difference.
You want to make sure that you select a turf that will not only look good but can also stand up to tough Australian conditions.
One such species that ticks all the boxes and has proven to be a resilient performer all year round is the Kings Pride Buffalo Turf.
This turf was actually first discovered growing wild, so it has a proven natural ability to thrive in Australia’s testing climate. It’s considered a true 5 star grass, during recent national horticultural trials it consistently had the highest individual score across shade, colour, wear, disease and weed control.
Let’s look more closely at some of the benefits of locally homegrown Kings Pride Buffalo Turf.
Extremely Shade Tolerant
Our Kings Pride Buffalo turf loves a full sun environment and will provide beautiful lawn coverage in the open areas of your garden.
However, shade tolerance is a very important consideration when it comes to choosing your lawn.
In Australia a typical backyard features big trees around the outside of gardens, this creates a large perimeter of shade throughout the lawn.
To suit these varying conditions a turf needs to be resilient enough to tolerate large areas of shade.
Unfortunately most grasses cannot survive in extreme shade.
Kings Pride Buffalo Turf delivers on this front, it’s an all rounder that can more than tolerate the shadiest of conditions. It performs well in full sun yet thrives in shaded areas; in fact it is the no.1 lawn on the market for high shade areas and has been proven to grow in next to no sunlight.
Overall this type of turf has excellent coverage and retains a very good density over the top of the soil even in shady conditions.
Beautiful Looking Buffalo Turf
When it comes to our lawn, we all want that beautiful finish from summer right through to winter.
It’s quite hard to find a grass that delivers consistently throughout the year.
This is where Kings Pride Buffalo Turf comes through. It’s a variety of beautiful soft leaf buffalo grass that’s non invasive to garden beds, and maintains its winter colour better than many of the leading buffalo grasses on the market today. Overall it delivers a softer, greener lawn all year round.
An added benefit of this type of grass is it’s resistance. When cared for well it has great resistance to pest and disease problems that a lot of other lawns suffer from.
Ideal of Warmer Seasons
If there’s one thing Australia is known for its hot dry conditions.
You’ve probably seen yourself in Western Sydney just how hot temperatures get. In order to adequately deal with these conditions you need a tough resilient turf.
Kings Pride Buffalo Turf does exceptionally well in the warm Australian weather. In fact it was first discovered growing wild, so it has a proven natural ability to thrive in Australia’s testing climate.
Even when it comes to maintenance Kings Pride is a proven winner. It produces less thatch meaning that it’s easier to mow and can be mowed at lower heights compared to other varieties of soft leaf buffalo.
We hope that this has given you important information about selecting the right type of turf for your backyard. Kings Pride Buffalo Turf is a beautiful looking grass that has proven to be a great allrounder that not only thrives in full sun environments and is able to handle the hot Australian summer but is extremely shade tolerant well.
When selecting where to get your turf it’s equally important that you source it from an original turf grower.
Original turf growers know the industry inside out, unlike landscapers and retailers who are only involved in part of the process, turf growers look after the turf in their own farm and have the experience of growing the turf from seed all the way through to ongoing maintenance.
