A proven shade and drought tolerant grass

Why have a brown lawn during summer when a lush green, drought-tolerant lawn like Sir Walter Buffalo can make you the envy of your street?

Buffalo lawns are more shade tolerant than other varieties because of its broad leaves which photosynthesise well. Among the Buffalo varieties, Sir Walter DNA Certified is among the very best performers in shady areas and can thrive with as little as five hours of sunlight per day, but also loves full sun aspect

Sir Walter’s roots grow deep into the subsoil gathering moisture. A Sir Walter lawn is an excellent way to create a cool,green space for your home.

A lot of different Buffalo Grasses are available on the market, but none of these have been able to surpass Sir Walter DNA Certified in ticking all the right boxes!

Bred for Australian Conditions

Sir Walter DNA Certified has been born and bred for Australian conditions and is a creeping type grass that sends out runners over the surface, making it easy to edge, unlike other drought tolerant turf grasses that are invasive with both underground and surface runners.

Warm Season Grass

Sir Walter DNA Certified is a warm season grass and as such can go dormant and loose colour over Winter in colder climates. Provided your lawn is well fertilised and looked after during its growing period this will encourage a quick spring return from dormancy.

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.

Great for kids and pets

When you purchase Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass, you’re not just buying a new lawn, you’re buying a whole new way of life.

  • soft-leaved
  • low-allergenic
