Bred by the World’s Best!

Zoysia Australis was bred at the world famous University of Georgia, Tifton Campus by Dr Brian Schwartz. Dr Schwartz is renowned as the scientist behind the release of the highly successful TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda. Zoysia Australis arrived in Australia back in 2018 with a range of other elite zoysia grasses. After extensive trials in a range of conditions and applications, Zoysia Australis was selected for commercial release. Zoysia Australis offers significant benefits and a real point of difference from the other turf varieties available to consumers.

Angela De Paula Assis
What a bloody sensational job! Had the boys from Daley’s Turf supply and lay the turf at our house this morning. The Sir Walter turf was top notch quality (the deepest green I’ve ever seen) and all the workers were friendly, polite and very knowledgeable. Also had the privilege of meeting the owner when he came to quote the job, so a massive thanks to you Terry and your staff. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!!
Jon O
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
What an amazing bunch of men. Friendly, efficient, very knowledgable. A special thanks to Terry who went above and beyond his work requirements. Much appreciated for all your help. I would have no trouble in recommending this company or their staff.
John Hadlow
We’re very happy with the Sir Walter laid by Daleys Turf. This is its first winter and the area doesn’t get a lot of sun, but we are thrilled with how well it is going and how it has retained its greenness. We still have some further renovation work to do on our yard but having the turf laid gave it a brilliant start. Daleys Turf also have great customer service and follow up from time to time to see how their handiwork is going! Highly recommend this company!
Roslyn BYRNE
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.

Daley's Turf have amazing quality products and they take the time to give you the best advice. Great people producing the best turf.
Jonathan Colquhoun
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.
Colette Taylor
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 🙂
Jazzy B
I have a home putting green project and Daleys shipped me some zoysia sprigs through an overnight courier. Arrived a few days later but the sprigs were packaged very well and arrived in great condition. Daleys also followed up the order making sure the product was safe and happy to give some guidance with the care and planting of the sprigs. 1 week in and the grass is starting to get some shoots. Thanks guys.
louis zaragoza
Great service from Terry and his team at Daley’s Turf Farm. The meters of lawn I got was in fantastic condition and the service was A1. Any turf questions, they are the people to ask.
stephen eather
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!
Karra Haight
Absolute pleasure working with these guys! They were flexible and professional all the way through and the outcome was amazing. And...the price was really competitive too! Would not hesitate recommending to anyone who’s looking to get some turf done. Thanks to Harley and his colleagues for a job well done.
Johan Vinnersted
