BUFFALO SAPPHIRE

Sapphire buffalo grass has all the benefits of the other high performance soft leaf buffalo grass, such as: needing less water, deep roots, greener in Winter, a good sun or shade turf and it’s hard wearing.

However, Sapphire buffalo grass has the added benefit of a finer texture.
Sapphire buffalo grass does not rely on fine leaves for its fine texture, but its folding leaf. When Sapphire buffalo grass is mature, its leaf folds at tight angles along its axis, resulting in a fine texture. This is important, because fine leaf buffalo lawns usually have thatch problems, are shallow rooted, poor wearing and are slow growing. A Sapphire buffalo lawn does not suffer from these problems.

Not only is a Sapphire buffalo lawn hard wearing, due to its quick recovery from wear damage, but it is also shade tolerant like all other good varieties of buffalo grass. It is an easy grass to grow. What makes a Sapphire buffalo lawn different to other buffalo lawn varieties is its fine texture. Until now, fine textured buffalo lawns have been slow growing, and shallow rooted, but a Sapphire buffalo lawn is different. We believe it is the only fine textured, quick recovering buffalo grass in the world. And a Sapphire buffalo lawn also has excellent disease tolerance, and a great winter colour.

Kikuyu

Kikuyu grass has been highly popular as a lawn in many environments in Australia for decades. It is inexpensive to purchase, require minimal lawn care to remain healthy, and grows and repairs quickly. However, lawn mowing frequencies will be higher than for any other turf species, often requiring lawn mowing every week in Summer. As well as requiring regular vertimowing to remove thatch build up. Kikuyu grass is also highly invasive of surrounding garden beds. Kikuyu lawn is widely used as the first choice for many community sporting ovals and schools in many states, the reasons for this choice are the same as listed in the attributes just mentioned, but the primary reason for this lawn choice is it’s quick repair capabilities, required by the oval’s use as a sporting venue, or play area.

Hot Weather Tolerance: Great/Thrives in humid areas.

Shade Tolerance: Good but prefers sun to give better quality.

Wear Resistance: High but not as quick to repair. Aggressive runners which run into garden beds if not managed

Mowing Height: 30mm – 40mm in full sun, and 45mm to 60mm in the shade.

Texture: Course leaf with aggressive runners when growing.

Fertiliser: 1-2 times /year
