Find the best grass for lawn

Jimboomba Turf has such an extensive range of premium grass types available that you might be wondering what is the best lawn grass for your property? Is it couch grass, or one with a soft leaf? How about buffalo turf or something that does well in shady areas like a zoysia grass? It can be confusing! There is also pressure to get it right to ensure you have an outstanding healthy lawn carpeted by the ideal grass for its purpose.

People will often give advice as to what is the best lawn for you. You might have heard the names of the different varieties, such as soft leaf buffalo grass, kikuyu grass, bermuda grass or even zoysia grass which are most commonly seen on Australian lawns. If you’re not in the turf game it might be difficult to know what any of that means. So, how do you find the best grass to buy?

Best grass for landscaping

The question of which of our range is the best type of grass for landscaping depends on the area, design, soils and position of the turf.

Anyone of our Lawn Solutions Australia recommended grass varieties can be selected to suit various themes, from grassing along winding footpaths beneath shady trees to wide expanses of lawn dotted with garden features.

When selecting the grasses for landscaping that would best suit your lawn, keep in mind low maintenance varieties such as Sir Grange Zoysia or Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo. Both varieties are also shade tolerant. For those looking for hard-wearing turf for increased foot traffic areas, consider Nullarbor Couch or the super wear tolerant TifTuf Bermuda that is also ideal for public spaces.
