Sir Walter is our most popular turf grass that requires minimal maintenance and is drought tolerant.
This superior buffalo grass is a soft broad leaf turf grass.
Sir Walter has been born and bred for Australian conditions and is a creeping type grass that moves over the surface and makes it easy to edge.
Sir Walter is a warm season grass and as such will go dormant and loose colour over Winter in colder climates.
Normally we can expect to see the discolouration between July to September but this will depend on the seasons and how cold the weather is.
If you are in a frosts prone area for example you will experience a longer dormancy period than a beachside suburb.
The upside to these Warm Season grasses is that they are very hard wearing and do like the heat and will use 2- 3 times less water during peak heat periods than Cool Season grasses.
