Visual Description

Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass is a Premium Soft Leaf Buffalo, bred specifically for Australian conditions. Sir Walter has mid-green leaves, red-purple stolons (lower leaf or “branch”) and a low lateral growth.

Sir Walter DNA Certified has excellent shade tolerance and a rapid growth rate as well as a low dense thatch growth habit which helps keep weeds out. It is a great all-rounder that is easy to maintain, grows in shade and keeps its winter greenness due to the fact that it’s winter active.


Sir Walter DNA Certified is perfect for the Aussie backyard! With moderate to high durability, it is great for high traffic areas, areas where children play and with dogs. Sir Walter DNA Certified can tolerate as little 3 hours of sunlight each day, but also perform well in full sun conditions.

Maintenance Characteristics

  • Bred as a low maintenance species
  • High resistance to many fungal and pest attacks
  • High drought, heat and cold tolerances, with a deep root system it out performs most other soft-leaf buffalo species.
  • During the growing season (September-May) mow every 7-14 days.
  • During the winter mow every 2-5 weeks.


Sir Walter DNA Certified requires speciality herbicides and pesticides when treating. When purchasing these products always read the label for suitability and application rates.

Like all turf, Sir Walter DNA Certified can be susceptible to Lawn Grub or Army Worm attack during the wet season. For more information on grub control click here.
