Sir Walter Buffalo Lawn

Marne Valley Turf is a licensed grower of Sir Walter Soft Leaf Buffalo, a drought and shade tolerant variety. Sir Walter is the best wearing, shade/full sun grass on the market, with over 35 million meters sold Australia wide. Sir Walter requires minimal irrigation and fertiliser to maintain colour, and can be mown shorter that other Buffalo varieties and unlike other creeping grasses Sir Walter Buffalo does not travel underground, making it easy to keep it out of the garden.

Santa Anna Couch

A very fine leafed couch noted for its attractive appearance, colour, retention in the South Australian climate. Santa Anna is considered a low maintenance grass, and hard wearing in nature. This grass can be cut extremely short and can be used as a home golf green.

Valley Green Kikuyu

Valley Green Kikuyu is a better option for Adelaide's climate than traditional Kikuyu. It is male sterile, darker in colour and will stay greener through winter. Kikuyu has a good drought tolerance and will rapidly self repair from wear. A low maintenance grass that will stay green with minimal irrigation and fertility.
