The Best Turf Varieties for Campbelltown, Camden and Narellan

Atlas Turf offers a wide range of turf varieties especially suited to the climate and growing conditions in your area.

Scientific research and careful selection means that we can produce grass varieties that cope with intense full summer sun and yet also cope well with shade.

Our turf varieties include:

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

Shade can be a real problem for grass in the winter months especially if your property is surrounded by tall trees or other large houses.

Sir Walter Buffalo or Sapphire Buffalo are two of the best performing grass varieties in shady conditions.

Sapphire Buffalo is especially popular with its soft narrow leaves and will thrive in as little as three hours of winter sunlight.

Although Sir Walter and Sapphire both perform well in sunlight they do produce a reasonable amount of thatch.

If this is an issue and you have a really sunny backyard you might prefer a variety such as Zoysia. But if frosts are common you would be better off with Sir Walter.

Drought resistance is also a common concern for Australian lawns but the Palmetto variety offers excellent drought recovery growth. Palmetto also has excellent frost tolerance.

Atlas Turf is dedicated to producing top quality turf with drought-resistant, weed resistant, shade tolerant hardy grass varieties.

What type of grass is best in my backyard?

The Blue Mountains experiences a wide range of climatic conditions and so you should put careful thought into where your new turf will go.

Think about the following requirements:

  • Drought tolerance
  • Shade tolerance
  • Frost resistance
  • Weed, disease, and pest insect resistance
  • Mowing requirements
  • Hardiness and resistance to damage

The cooler winter temperatures and possibility of snow in the Blue Mountains means the colour of the grass in winter could be a major consideration for you.

Shade tolerance may also be very important.

Palmetto has good winter colour but doesn’t do so well in the shade.

On the other hand, Sapphire has very high wear and tear resistance and has a finer leaf than the other buffalo varieties.

All the Atlas Turf varieties are premium quality grass strains and you should be able to find a variety that ticks all your boxes and turns not only your backyard green but your neighbours green with envy.

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.”
