Sir Walter DNA Certified Turf

We like to say that Sir Walter DNA Certified Turf is a ‘lifestyle’ feature lawn. And that’s because investing in Sir Walter means you’re also buying a new way of weekend life. 

With Sir Walter buffalo grass you’ll be able to establish your lawn and see it grow and thrive with minimal ongoing maintenance. Your weekend hours will be freed from the onerous tasks of overwhelming mowing, watering and troubleshooting. And your children and pets can run free without worrying about the impact to your lush lawn.

What does ‘certified’ mean?

The ‘Certified’ part of Sir Walter’s formal-sounding name means the turf is 100% guaranteed to be free from weeds, pests and foreign grasses when it is supplied to you. To get the name, the turf has to run through the rigorous AusGAP’s certification process and be grown by licensed turf growers. Those growers must plant it on land that is sterilised and free from pests, weeds and foreign varieties of turf.
