What Types Of Grass Do You Supply?

We supply a wide range of turf varieties to suit all your lawn needs.

So, with Atlas turf you can maintain your green credentials and still have a green lawn.

Atlas Turf will keep the grass looking greener on your side of the fence with drought-tolerant, weed resistant, shade tolerant hardy grass varieties.

We use DNA genetically certified turf so you know you’re getting only the best.

Our turf varieties include:

  • Sir Walter Buffalo
  • Matilda Buffalo
  • Sapphire Buffalo
  • Palmetto Buffalo
  • Empire Zoysia
  • CT2 Couch
  • Kikuyu

These are all really hardy grasses but each has particular characteristics that make them ideal for certain conditions and settings.

What Type Of Grass Is Best For My Needs?

The Australian climate can be really tough on lawns.

The amount of shade, the climate extremes, the amount of mowing and irrigation requirements all play a part in the success and quality of your lawn.

Before you choose a grass variety you should look carefully at where you plan to put your new turf and think about the following requirements:

  • Drought tolerance
  • Shade tolerance
  • Weed, disease, and pest insect resistance
  • Mowing requirements
  • Hardiness and resistance to damage – like foot traffic and pet (dogs) damage

Ask yourself; will your lawn take a hammering from the rough and tumble of children or grandchildren?

Do you want a lawn that needs minimal maintenance?

Other factors may be important for you to consider such as the colour of the grass in winter, leaf texture and size, and salt tolerance if you live close to the coast.

Sometimes your decision may need to be a compromise favouring one aspect over another.

For example, you might need to give more importance to drought resistance versus how often you have to mow the lawn.

Sir Walter Buffalo premium turf is one of Australia’s most popular choices…

It has excellent drought resistance and shade tolerance, self-repairing hardiness, low maintenance and watering requirements, and exceptional all year-round appearance.

We also stock other Buffalo turf varieties with a range of grass leaf sizes and softness and maintenance requirements.

Or choose one of the low maintenance turfs such as Empire Zoysia if you don’t like mowing lawns or if the budget is an important consideration you may like to choose Kikuyu but you will need to mow it weekly.

How Do I Look After My New Lawn?

After the initial establishment period your new Atlas turf will need a minimal amount of maintenance.

The degree and frequency of the maintenance programme will depend on the grass variety and the particular local climatic conditions.

To keep your Atlas turf looking its best you will generally need to:

  • Water two to three times per week in hot dry periods and once a week in winter
  • Mow the lawns once a week in spring and summer
  • Fertilise the lawn every eight weeks for the first 12 months and then four times a year thereafter (especially in autumn)

Atlas turf varieties are hardy and will recover from quite severe damage but if extensive damage occurs you may need to keep an eye out for invasive weed species.

Atlas Turf supplies a number of products that will help control those nasty weeds and help keep your turf looking beautiful.

How Much Does Turf Cost?

The cost of good quality turf is surprisingly low and ranges from around $6 per m2 for Kikuyu to $11 per m2 for Sir Walter Buffalo.

You may need to factor in the additional cost of preparing the ground and this may include spraying, rotary hoeing, and levelling to get the best results.

Of course, if you do this yourself you can reduce this cost considerably.

With Atlas Turf the end result can add as much as 16% or $160,000 to the average resale value of a Sydney home and that equals an impressive return on your investment.

Extremely satisfied…

“We have used and recommended Atlas Turf for the last few years and have been extremely satisfied. Kerrie and Neale grow exceptionally good quality grass of various varieties, that meet both our high standards as well as meeting our customers needs. Availability and delivery has never been an issue and their staff have always been very helpful. If you’re looking at new grass or looking to change suppliers, we would have no hesitation in recommending Atlas Turf.”

– Shelley Conasch, Feature Trees Australia

I would definitely recommend…

“…The turf was delivered and the delivery gentleman from Atlas even informed us, by eye that we had ordered too little turf, and recommended an amount we needed, and was spot on. The process from ordering, to delivering, to laying was all made easier by Atlas and all of their staff, and I would definitely recommend them to any friends or family.”

– Brendan, Sydney

Prompt and lovely to deal with…

“We used Atlas Turf to turf our whole yard, front and back. The staff on the phone were prompt, lovely to deal with and were very knowledgeable not only of their own product but also helped answer many questions about the preparation, maintenance and also a few tips to help lay the turf.”

– Brendan, Sydney

I am extremely happy…

“Just a quick note to let you know that I am extremely happy with my new Sir Walter Lawn. Thank you to the Great Service and Advice I received from all the staff at Atlas Turf.”

– David, Windsor

You were fantastic…

“Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how happy we are with our Lawn, right from the start you were fantastic recommending the best lawn for me since I have always lived in a unit it was all a bit confusing. I have a bit of a smile on my face when I walk out on the weekends and my neighbours are all having to mow every weekend but you were right the lawn you selected for me even in summer only needs a quick cut every 3 to 4 weeks to look awesome! Thanks again.”
