A proven shade and drought tolerant grass

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 buffalo grass is among the very best performers in shady areas and can thrive with as little as three hours of sunlight per day.

Sir Walter’s roots grow deep into the subsoil gathering the moisture. A Sir Walter lawn can reduce the heat generated from the sun by up to 10 degrees!

Great for family life

Ideal for families with children and pets, Sir Walter is soft-leaved, low allergenic, lush and green. The perfect Aussie lawn! Its tight growth habit holds out most weeds and it repairs itself quickly if damaged lessening the incidence of bare patches.
