THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING TURF GRASS TYPES - TURF GRASSES

In Queensland the most common varieties of turf grass types are:

  • Kikuyu
  • Couch
  • Soft Leaf Buffalo
  • Queensland Blue
  • Broad Leaf Carpet Grass
  • Zoysia

In selecting the right lawn grass for your property in South-East Queensland there are some issues you need to consider and compare:

  • Climate- maximum and minimum temperatures, humidity and rainfall
  • Drought tolerance
  • Shade tolerance
  • Pest & Disease resilience
  • Weed resilience
  • Frequency of mowing required
  • The winter colour
  • Salt tolerance with near the coast

In comparing lawn grasses you will also need to think about the drainage of your yard, the amount of shaded areas and the amount of time you have available to conduct weed and pest control, watering, mowing and fertilising or the cost involved with hiring someone to do this on your behalf.

The best and most popular choice of turf grasses to cater to the South East Queensland conditions and climate is the soft leaf buffalo, such as Sir Walter. It has been designed and grown to the warm and often humid climate, has excellent salt and shade tolerance, good drought, pest and disease tolerance and a good winter colour. It suffers only slight invasion from weeds and requires only average mowing and maintenance – making it a great choice. Another option for South East Queensland is one of the couch turf varieties such as the Nullarbor Couch – both are available for purchase online from Daleys Turf today.

Daleys Turf highly recommends Sir Walter Premium lawn turf out of all the lawn grasses as this soft leaf buffalo turf has proven to be a winner in the Queensland climate and has an excellent home owner approval rating – in fact it is Australia’s most popular lawn choice. If you still have questions regarding turf grasses varieties, just contact the team at Daleys Turf.

I couldn't be happier with my experience with Daley's Turf! Not only is the product first class, but all of my interactions with the staff were very positive and helpful. I loved the energy of everyone I spoke to and my new turf looks amazing! Well worth the drive up from Ipswich. Thanks again guys!
Chris Smallwood
We have no hesitation in recommending Daley's Turf to you. They have delivered a first rate product in a professional manner. There was great communication with the company. The turf was ordered, an onsite inspection and discussion of alternatives and in no time we have a beautiful lawn. Special thanks to Harley for making it happen.

Our excellent experience with Daleys Turf started when Harley Schenk arrived at our home to assess our requirements for a new front lawn. His expertise coupled with his friendly manner and detailed explanation created an immediate confidence that assurred us we had chosen the best company for our needs. Harley arrived on schedule, was well presented and wasted no time in preparing the quote. On the day of installation again he arrived on time with his colleague Patrick and together they carried out the task. They were painstaking in their efforts in preparing the site and laying the new turf. I have witnessed many lawns being laid in our suburb and I can honestly state that my lawn stands out from the rest, due to the quality of the product and the meticulous standard of Harley's workmanship. If you think your lawn is in need of replacement do not hesitate to engage Harley at Daleys Turf, you will not be disappointed.

Recently had over 1100 sqm of Sir Walter DNA Certified turf installed at my property by Daley's Turf. The turf is superb quality and looking fantastic in my front & backyards. The whole project management with Harley was 100% outstanding ~ from the initial & follow up consultations, soil preparation advice, help choosing the right turf for our block and finally the install with his small team. Absolute 5 star review to Daley's Turf for such an amazing project done to the highest level. Thanks 🙂

Terry and Harley worked absolute wonders! So happy with our new lawn... from start to finish they were really easy to deal with and offered great advice! As soon as it was laid it looked like it had been there forever and it took to the soil beautifully! Terry was kind enough to give me his sprinkler and tap timer when he noticed ours had been broken - above and beyond! Pictures just under 4 weeks after installation - front before mow, inside fence after it's first mow! These are unedited... it's so green!! Thank you Daleys Turf!
