Benefits of Sir Walter
Sir Walter was designed in Australia, for the Australian climate, by an Australian. Sir Walter handles the rough Australian conditions with ease, thriving during blistering summers and keeping spectacular colour through chilly winters.
Sir Walter Premium lawn grass was designed specifically to be drought tolerant, giving you the most water efficient lawn available. If you are concerned with conservation Sir Walter can help you out.
Full Sun and Shade Tolerant
While being the most shade tolerant Australian grass available, Sir Walter also thrives in areas that receive full sun. As long as it will receive more than 2-3 hours of sunlight each day Sir Walter will look spectacular no matter where you choose to put it.
Combined with its drought and shade tolerance, Sir Walter gives you an extremely low maintenance lawn. Its strong root system and thick foliage only dominates weeds, it grows slower than couch varieties, meaning you spend less time on the mower.
Not only are the leaves of Sir Walter softer and more supple than those of its competitors, Sir Walter boasts a springy softness that your kids will love to play on.
Sir Walter has been developed to repair itself when damaged or abused. Any areas that have discoloured or been destroyed, will on their own re-establish. This means less time concentrating on fertilising and other repairs and more time enjoying your yard.

Installing your Sir Walter
We suggest Sir Walter is laid onto a prepared, levelled surface on top of 50-100mm of good quality topsoil, a sandy loam available from your local garden centre will be suitable. Once you have your new soil spread and flat, it is an ideal time to incorporate some extra nutrients and water crystals into your topsoil, apply Sir Turf Launcher at a rate of 30g per 100m² and rake it through gently. If you smooth your initial topsoil, you do not need to roll the turf after installation.
When you receive your turf, we recommend it is laid immediately. Starting from one edge, place it down in an alternating brickwork pattern. To carry the turf around either use a wheelbarrow, or fold it in half, and carry the slab close to your chest with one arm under the turf. Any irregular bits, or small areas can be cut in using a machete, cane knife, shovel or other cutting implement.
If all of that work does not sound like your thing, why not take advantage of our laying service, it is only $1.65 per m² ($220 Minimum). Our expert turf installers arrive on the day of your turf delivery, spread any required fertiliser, install your turf, cut-in those finniky edges and roll your lawn with expert precision.
Watering your Sir Walter
Once your Sir Walter has been laid, it is very important it is watered immediately, especially in the hot climate of Brisbane turf needs to be well watered during the establishment period.
We recommend the following watering schedule, please check with your local council to ensure you comply with appropriate water restrictions.
|On the day||Water immediately after installation.|
|1-7 days||Water for 1 hour morning and evening.|
|7-14 Days||Water for 1 hour morning or evening.|
The establishment watering phase is very important, both to cool and hydrate your lawn, and to charge any water crystals you applied before installation.
