Sir Walter Premium Grass is now available for pick up at Centenary Landscaping Supplies, Darra just off the Centenary Highway throughout the week but often it is best to order first as it is so popular.

Centenary Landscaping Supplies is a Premium Supplier of this hardy, shade tolerant and soft buffalo grass with all the accessories you could want so that you can get the best out of your new lawn, and there’s no need to visit the turf farm out in the bush. Sir Walter Premium Turf is an Australian born and bred grass for our dry and harsh weather conditions.
Sir Walter 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 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 it’s winter greenness due to the fact that it’s winter active.
Sir Walter 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 can tolerate as little 3 hours of sunlight each day, but also perform well in full sun conditions.
