Sir Grange vs Sir Walter

Sir Grange vs Sir Walter

Sir Grange and Sir Walter DNA Certified turf are both popular and commonly found nation-wide. But when deciding between the two, you must consider which would be better for your property.

Below, we discuss which turf is better, depending on the type of land you are covering.

Residential

When deciding which turf to choose for your home, Sir Grange and Sir Walter DNA Certified turfs are hard to go past. Families can benefit from both turf varieties depending on the size of their property.

Small properties

For most residential areas, both turf varieties would be a good choice. However, for the better out of the two, we would recommend Sir Grange turf.

Sir Grange is the perfect lawn for small properties, especially those that are shaded by buildings and fences for most of the day. With over 75% of shade tolerance, it is the most shade resistant out of the Zoysia range, needing only three hours of direct sunlight.

Sir Grange grass has a very fine leaf blade, giving it the perfect manicured look. It is suitable for families with kids who love to play in the backyard or those with pets due to its low allergenic quality and extremely high wear tolerance. Plus, it also has a self-repairing trait that allows it to fix itself once damaged.

Large properties

For larger residential areas, Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo would be the better and more affordable choice.

Sir Walter can hold its own through harsh Australian climate. This classic is easily one of the toughest turf varieties.

Bred in Australia, this grass is both drought resistant and adaptable to frost. This means it’ll survive the most drastic weather conditions and all in between. This would suit large properties since it isn’t as expensive as Sir Grange turf.

Sir Walter Buffalo turf has a tight growth habit that will combat against weeds making it the best lawn for houses on acreage.

Commercial

For commercial areas, Sir Grange would be the best choice.

Being able to handle full exposure to sun, Sir Grange would be the perfect turf for commercial properties like luxury landscapes and high-end projects. It has a high drought tolerance and can survive sub-freezing temperatures making it the perfect grass for any location in Sydney.

Because of its high tolerance to salt, Sir Grange is the ultimate lawn for coastal commercial areas that are constantly exposed to sea spray.

The neat appearance of Sir Grange turf makes it appropriate for businesses wanting to maintain a polished look.

Sir Walter Buffalo turf, on the other hand, can also be used on these properties. Although it’s not as good and visually appealing as what Sir Grange has to offer.


Undoubtedly, Sir Grange easily wins the crown for being the better turf choice than Sir Walter. Despite being more expensive than the latter, it’s completely justified by the refined set of qualities it has.  It’s clearly a turf that suits any lifestyle due to its low maintenance and drought tolerant nature.

Thanks to Lawn Solutions Australia, both turf varieties come with a ten-year warranty. So regardless of your choice, you are covered for either.
