  • Sir Walter Soft Leaf Buffalo was born and bred in Australia, under Australian conditions so it has excellent drought tolerance compared to other Buffalo Lawns.
  • Because it is winter active it maintains its colour longer than other Buffalo Turf and does not go purple in winter.
  • The low thatch growth habit makes it a low maintenance lawn arriving in turf rolls that are strong and easy to lay. The softer leaves means an ideal surface for children to play on.
  • Sir Walters drought tolerance, herbicide tolerance and fungus resistance means that this is one of the most environmentally friendly turf grasses available.
  • The crisp green colour of Sir Walter makes this a most attractive lawn in summer and winter.

Recommended as the best domestic grass in Australia by Don Burke ('Burke's Backyard').
