Low allergenic

Sir Grange is also a low allergenic grass type, and its soft fine leaf texture is ideal for children and pets.


High drought, sun and wear tolerance once established

Sir Grange is hardy and tough. It suits full sun situations and has high drought tolerance once established on a good sand/organic or 80/20 base of at least 100-200mm, which is an increasingly important consideration for both residential and commercial lawns. It also has a high tolerance for foot traffic and wear, with excellent self-repairing capability once the root zone is established to a depth of 200mm.

  • Can handle full sun
  • High drought tolerance (once established)
  • High wear tolerance (once established)
  • Self repairing
  • Minimal damage when scalped

High shade tolerance

Has your garden got areas of shade? Not a problem, Sir Grange Zoysia can handle it. Unlike some other common grass varieties that require full sun to thrive, Sir Grange has a very high tolerance of shady situations after establishment, needing minimal direct sunlight. Shade performance is maximised when wear in the shaded areas is minimal.

  • High shade tolerance (needs only 3 hours of direct sunlight/day once established)

Low maintenance and nutrient requirements

Less maintenance means more time to enjoy your garden! Sir Grange does not need to be mown as frequently as other common grass varieties, and also can be mown at a range of different heights to suit your garden and preference. Not only that, but it is less demanding of nutrients than other grass types!

  • Requires up to 50% less mowing than other common turf varieties
  • Can be mowed at a wide range of heights
  • Requires 75% less nitrogen than other common turf varieties and in many cases will need little to no fertiliser at all.
