You know the saying; you get what you pay for.
But when it comes to cheap turf that isn’t always the case.

But here at Atlas Turf we supply only the very best quality turf.
We use only tested, genetically accredited grass strains and guess what we still offer very reasonable, cheap turf prices.
When you buy high quality Atlas Turf instant grass you are making a real investment in the quality of your life as well as your property value.
It is well-known in real estate circles that a lawn can increase the resale value of the average Sydney house by as much as $83,600 .

Those are some pretty good reasons why you need to choose top quality turf.
Atlas Turf supplies an enormous range of premium quality turf varieties at some of the cheapest prices in Sydney.
Atlas Turf is one Australia’s most trusted accredited turf suppliers and we deliver throughout the Sydney and Central Coast region from Windsor to Blacktown and over to the Northern Beaches.
Cheap Turf Sydney
The Sydney region boasts a wide variety of climatic conditions; winter frost and snow in the mountains to hot dry summers and salt-laden winds on the coast.
Australia’s weather can be tough on grass. That’s why you need to choose the best quality cheap turf in Sydney.
Atlas Turf grows instant turf that’s ideally suited for the Sydney region.
When choosing a turf variety it’s important to think about the micro-climate that rules in your backyard.
It’s especially important to think about whether your lawn will be exposed to:
• Winter shade and frosts
• Summer sun and drought
• Heavy wear and tear (children or dogs)
You’ll also want to consider the importance of low allergen grasses if you or your loved ones suffer from allergies.
And don’t forget that all important question of maintenance: how often do you want to mow the lawn?
Best Cheap Turf Varieties
Many Sydney areas suffer from intense drought so the cheaper Kikuyu turf or cheap Couch turf varieties might be the perfect choice for your Sydney property.
Kikuyu turf is the cheapest variety, it’s $10.50 per m2 and our CT2 Couch sells for $9.65 per m2, both boast low water requirements making them a great choice for hot, dry, sunny areas.
If your backyard gets shady in the winter and is prone to frosts then you might like to take a look at the more premium Palmetto Buffalo turf.
Palmetto Buffalo delivers good winter colour even in the shade and yet still performs brilliantly in the summer with good drought resistance.
Maybe you’re looking for a brilliant all-rounder grass, good in summer and winter, then a good cheap buffalo turf could be the perfect choice for your Wollongong property.
Sir Walter Buffalo boasts excellent drought, sun, and wear and tear resistance as well as being a pretty solid performer in winter too.
Matilda and Sapphire sell for approx $15.95 per m2, and are both soft leaved, cheap Buffalo turf varieties that do well in shaded areas but still perform when the heat turns up and are good choices for most areas from Illawarra to Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.
They’re tough and cope well with heavy wear and tear but they don’t do so well in shade or cold conditions.
Empire Zoysia is another turf variety ideally suited for serious sun, heat, and drought tolerance. In fact, it’s one of the most drought tolerant turf varieties available.
It thrives in hot, humid areas but still copes well with shade. Zoysia turf is not the cheapest turf, but it is available for only $14.50 per m2. Empire Zoysia is one tough customer with a soft touch leaf.
It’s a minimal maintenance turf and that makes it even more attractive.
Is Synthetic Grass Cheaper?
No, not really, and it’s not that good for the environment or your health.
Recent research highlights the potential dangers of carcinogenic compounds and other toxic chemicals in many (cheaper) synthetic turf products.
Synthetic grass is usually made of rubber and this also contributes to increased heat build – up in the soil.
And synthetic grass can still cost from $30 to $50 per m2, which far exceeds the cost of superior quality Atlas turf so it’s a no-brainer really.
And many of the inferior cut-price natural grass alternatives too will let you down under the wear and tear of everyday life.
Most really cheap turf products rely on poor quality grass types that are not genetically true to type.
The result; the grass dies under stress such as heavy duty wear and tear, hot summers or too much shade.
Cheap grasses usually have no resistance and you’re left with bare brown patches in your lawn that won’t grow back.
With online prices as low as $10.50 per m2 for Kikuyu or $15.95 m2 for Sir Walter it makes sense to choose premium quality Atlas Turf for a cheap lawn and ground cover.
The reality is nothing beats nature and Atlas Turf features some of nature’s finest instant turf varieties.
