Daleys Turf, as an accredited grower with Lawns Solutions, is proud to be a part of the recently announced sponsorship arrangement with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA).
‘Lawn Solutions Australia Business Manager Simon Adermann describes the new sponsorship as a great opportunity for both organisations.
“The new deal brings together two disciplines that are almost at opposite ends of the construction process,” says Simon. “Landscape Architects are heavily involved at the design stage and then we find; sometimes years later, that the turf in many cases is the last piece of the project, the icing on the cake if you like,” he says.
“AILA promotes its vision as championing quality design for public open space, stronger communities and greater environmental stewardship,” says Simon, “and that’s a perfect fit for our organisations Turf Producer members who are the ones that make ‘green things’ happen much of the time.”
Lawn Solutions Australia’s ability to support the many AILA events and industry activities around the country through its wide grower network is one of the key reasons behind the arrangement.
“Our Lawn Solutions turf producers now represent well over half of all turf production in Australia,” said Simon. “We are well represented in all states of Australia and our extensive breeding, genetic purity and quality assurance programs are now in place. “There are a number of new varieties we are trialing around the country that will come into their own in golf and sports-turf facilities as well as domestic-use over coming years,” he says.
One of those grasses showing great promise Simon explains, is their new Zeon Zoysia, currently being installed on the 2016 Olympic Golf Course in Brazil, and being trailed in various locations and on-site situations throughout Australia.
Lawn Solutions Australia says it can offer specifiers, designers, planners and the end-user a superior consistency of product right around the country, a claim said to be difficult for any other group to compete with.
“The Lawn Solutions Australia ‘house of brands’ made up of Sir Walter, Nullarbor Couch, Eureka Kikuyu, Platinum Zoysia, and RTF Fescue all come with an amazing ten year product warranty,” Simon goes on to say. “And our grower-group brings together the collective wisdom, knowledge and best-practice of leading Australian turf producers, some having 30-plus years’ experience in the industry.
“Lawn Solutions Australia is committed to greener environments through our quality products and this dovetails well with AILA’s aspirations for quality design in green open space,” Simon concluded.’
