Turf Varieties for Wollongong and the Illawarra

There are several premium turf varieties we grow, which suit lawns in the Illawarra. They each have their pros and cons to consider. Ask us if you’re not sure what to buy!

When choosing a lawn variety, these are the factors to think about:

  • Shade – how much shade will your lawn get and how much sun does it need to survive?
  • Water & drought – how much watering do you want to do? Some grasses do OK with minimal water.
  • Maintenance – some varieties require more mowing and edging.
  • Fertilising – for optimal growth and green, most varieties need fertilising every now and then. But how much?
  • Wear & tear – do you have kids, dogs, or generally a lot of foot traffic on the lawn? Some handle this better than others.
  • Weed resistance – will your grass out-compete weeds?
  • Disease resistance – how susceptible will the variety be to lawn diseases and fungus?
  • Budget – not all varieties cost the same. But bear in mind you will get a better performing lawn with a higher budget.
  • Ask us a question. We're happy to help!
