This is the most important factor to consider when choosing a new lawn. Sir Walter DNA Certified is the best grass variety to thrive in shade, as long as it receives upwards of 2 hours of full sun per day. Conversely, Nullarbor Couch requires 7-8 hours of direct sun per day and will struggle if this quota is not met.
If you’ve got a shaded site, invest in Sir Walter DNA Certified as the most practical, rewarding lawn.

Active Lifestyles / Frequent Use

Our Legend turf is a couch sports variety used in major sporting arenas, namely Suncorp Stadium and the Gabba. It’s self-repairing and wear resistant qualities are a perfect match for you and your active lifestyle.

Tip 3 | Upfront costs versus long term maintenance costs
This is often the turning point for many customers, though it’s important to identify what value for money means to you; now versus in the future. Value for money is at the top of everyone’s agenda, to which we have two solutions – lower upfront cost versus lower maintenance cost.
Lower Upfront Cost
If you need a lawn on a tight budget, you may see more value for money in Nullarbor Couch; as long as your site receives 7-8 hours of full sun per day. It’s important to note that while all lawns require regular maintenance, couch lawns tend to require more over time, resulting in higher costs related to watering, fertilising with an increased risk for weed / pest control.
Lower Maintenance Cost
If you see value in a lawn that’s practical and easy to maintain, then Sir Walter DNA Certified won’t disappoint. It’s renowned as Australia’s favourite lawn for it’s low maintenance, yet high performing traits. Featuring a tight root habit and medium-broad leaves, Sir Walter DNA Certified grows in full sun and / or part shade, requires less water, offers higher weed resistance and has a soft, luxurious look and feel.
With all things considered, there is a lawn variety to suit every budget, household and lifestyle. In order to make an informed decision, it’s important to identify and evaluate:
• total hours of direct sun on site
