Not since the 1997 release of Sir Walter, has a new turf launch generated such excitement. Introducing the latest brand of turf from Lawn Solutions Australia, Sir Grange.
Sir Grange is a fine bladed premium turf variety, which has high shade tolerance and very low nutrient requirements. This turf variety was originally developed for the golf industry but it was soon discovered that, due to its characteristics, it would make a fantastic home lawn. Its adaptability to a variety of climates, and its beautiful dark green leaf have seen it become the #1 selling Zoysia grass in the USA and is set to achieve similar results here in South East Queensland.
Why choose Sir Grange?
Sir Grange requires regular watering and the Daleys Turf team recommend having or installing an irrigation system prior to laying this variety of turf. It is also recommended that Sir Grange has free draining soil as it does not like wet feet.
This turf was originally developed in America for the golfing industry but it was quickly determined that, due to its specific characteristics, it would be a great domestic lawn. One of its first tests was being featured quite heavily on the specially designed golf course for the Rio Olympics. The brief for this course was that it be turfed with grass varieties that required less water and fertiliser than others currently on the market. Sir Grange provided a highly playable and lush surface. The turf held up to varying water quality, limited amount of water for irrigation and fertiliser. It also choked out the weeds – a winner considering that herbicides could not be used on the site.
Overall, it passed with flying colours – going on to become the number one selling Zoysia grass in America.
Sir Grange’s adaptability to a wide variety of climates and its dark green leaf makes it a fantastic choice to reach Australian shores. It has been in development, here in Australia for over five years – arriving as not much more than a 200mm pot. It has been painstakingly tested by Lawn Solutions Australia and now grown by accredited growers to produce a quality product, ready for the Australian retail market.
One of the most interesting aspects of Sir Grange is its usability. It is suitable for high shade and full sun while featuring a narrow leaf blade. If you’re typically a Couch lover you’ll find this narrow leaf shade tolerant option exciting. If you’re typically a Zoysia lover you’ll find this variety of turf requires even less fertiliser and water than any other turf on today’s market.
While new to our market, Sir Grange has undergone strict testing right here in our Australian climate, and the results…its drought, shade and sun tolerant as well as tolerant to high traffic. It is also self-repairing. It loves a short mow and has low water and nutrient requirements. It is insect and weed resistant – so low maintenance as well.
Sir Grange is now ready and available in Australia and is farmed under the same strict conditions as other LSA brands of turf such as Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo turf. It can only be grown by AusGAP certified turf farms to ensure it remains genetically pure. It comes with the Lawn Solutions Australia 10 year product warranty and certificate of authenticity.
Through collaboration with some of the top turf research facilities around the world, Sir Grange has been through rigorous and extensive research and development. It has fulfilled all the strict regulations involved in bringing a new grass variety to the market. To this end, Sir Grange has now been successfully grown and sold in over 10 countries and now it’s Australia’s turn.
With its deep green, fine bladed premium turf, the Sir Grange brand is set to quickly become a household favourite across the country. If you’re ready to be one of the first in Australia to install Sir Grange – Daleys Turf has turf ready to go.
