Your Questions Answered

Sir Walter Buffalo is a non-invasive turf variety, which means it won’t spread much beyond where it’s laid. Sir Walter only grows surface runners, making it easy to control while mowing. 

We grow premium turf varieties that are exclusive to Lawn Solutions Australia. Our Sir Walter turf is certified by AusGAP to prove that you’re getting the turf you’re paying for, so you know you’ve got the leading turf variety in Australia. 

Yes, you can lay Sir Walter at any time of the year. Just be aware that winter is the dormant period for Sir Walter, so the establishment period will take longer than in the warmer months.

When your Sir Walter lawn is healthy, it should grow densely enough that the roots system will crowd out any weeds before they can get established. We also supply Oxafert pre-emergent fertiliser, which prevents new seeds from germinating to stop weeds before they start. 

When you’re looking to buy Sir Walter Buffalo grass in Melbourne, you can expect to pay around $15 per square metre. However, you can often receive a discount on Sir Walter Buffalo grass depending on how much turf you order.
