Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo

Australia’s number one


There are so many reasons why Sir Walter is Australia’s No. 1 Buffalo. Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Grass has stood the test of time, proving time and time again that it will go anywhere and grow anywhere; in full sun or
shade, in extreme heat, frost or drought. Greenway Turf has been a proud supplier of Sir Walter Turf for the past 17 years.

Born right here in Australia, Sir Walter was bred to be tough yet soft, and good looking to boot! Since 1997 there has been over 50 million metres of Sir Walter sold Australia wide – the equivalent to 350,000 homes. It is versatile and hardy, many factors which cause most other lawns a problem.

A proven shade and drought tolerant grass

Why have a brown lawn during summer when a lush green drought tolerant lawn like Sir Walter can make you the envy of your street. A lot of different Buffalo Grasses are available on the market, but none of these have been able to surpass Sir Walter in ticking all the right boxes. Sir Walter’s roots grow deep into the subsoil gathering the moisture.
