Sapphire Buffalo

turf supplies Sydney

Sapphire buffalo grass has all the benefits of the other high performance soft leaf buffalo grass, such as: needing less water, deep roots, greener in Winter, a good sun or shade turf, and it’s hard wearing.

However, Sapphire buffalo grass has the added benefit of a finer texture.

Sapphire buffalo grass does not rely on fine leaves for its fine texture but its folding leaf. When Sapphire buffalo grass matures, its leaf folds at tight angles along its axis, resulting in a fine texture. This is important because fine leaf buffalo lawns usually have thatch problems, are shallow rooted, poor wearing and are slow growing. A Sapphire buffalo lawn does not suffer from these problems.

Not only is a Sapphire buffalo lawn hard wearing, due to its quick recovery from wear damage, but it is also shade tolerant like all other good varieties of buffalo grass. It is an easy grass to grow. Its fine texture makes a Sapphire buffalo lawn different from other buffalo lawn varieties. Until now, finely textured buffalo lawns have been slow growing and shallow rooted, but a Sapphire buffalo lawn is different. We believe it is the only fine textured, quick recovering buffalo grass in the world. And a Sapphire buffalo lawn also has excellent disease tolerance and great winter colour.

Kikuyu turf

Kikuyu grass has been highly popular as a lawn in many environments in Australia for decades. It is inexpensive to purchase, requires minimal lawn care to remain healthy, and grows and repairs quickly. However, lawn mowing frequencies will be higher than any other turf species, often requiring lawn mowing every week in Summer. As well as requiring regular Vertimowing to remove thatch build up. Kikuyu grass is also highly invasive to surrounding garden beds. Kikuyu lawn is widely used as the first choice for many community sporting ovals and schools in many states, the reasons for this choice are the same as listed in the attributes just mentioned, but the primary reason for this lawn choice is its quick repair capabilities, required by the oval’s use as a sporting venue, or play area.

Hot Weather Tolerance

Great/Thrives in humid areas.

Shade Tolerance

Good, but prefers sun to give better quality.

Wear Resistance

High but not as quick to repair. Aggressive runners who run into garden beds if not managed
