AusGAP for Specifiers

Independent turf certification

AusGAP is an independent turf certification body that can offer advice on every step of a landscape project specification involving natural turf surfaces. AusGAP certified turf products are guaranteed to be of a high standard and delivered in a timely manner from the point of harvest to give the grass the best start in its new environment.


AusGAP certified turf products are recommended in the NATSPEC specifications branded work section for natural grass surfaces, Lawn Solutions in Landscape – Natural Grass Surfaces, due to their consistent quality and performance.

AusGAP turf selector

The AusGAP Turf Selector will assist with the selection of the correct grass type for your situation, taking into account the performance of each species in your particular situation and recommending the best fit as well as options of suppliers in that area.

Preparation and maintenance

Choosing the correct AusGAP certified turf for your project is one aspect that will ensure that the product and project will deliver as expected, but for a quality certified turf grass to perform, the preparation and maintenance of the site must be properly planned and delivered.

AusGAP certified producers have years of experience and are an invaluable resource when deciding on the right fit for your job specification.

Consultation and advice

AusGAP has aligned itself with leading turf researchers, breeders and consultants so can offer advice and assistance on any project involving the use of natural ground coverings across the country.

For further information on turf types, site preparation and ongoing turf maintenance, contact the AusGAP office to discuss the best way forward for your particular project.
