Sir Grange is a fine leaf Zoysia turf that will thrive in full sun environments. It is the perfect low maintenance solution for a residential home yard requiring a feature lawn area that will have zero traffic. It is not suitable for families with pets or kids.
Sir Grange has low water, once established, however, deep and frequent watering of your new Sir Grange lawn will be essential for at least the first 6 weeks until its roots firmly establish in its new home. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU PURCHASE SIR GRANGE IF YOU ARE NOT INSTALLING AN AUTOMATED IRRIGATION SYSTEM.
Can tolerate a wide range of mowing heights and is suitable for sports turf surfaces and for backyard action.
Unlike many other varieties – your new Sir Grange lawn will not need a follow up feed post installation and will require minimal fertiliser as part of its ongoing annual maintenance.
Sir Grange will perform well in shade, once established. Please discuss your situation with our team to assess your environment before installing.
We recommend you install your new Sir Grange lawn in Victoria between October and the Labour Day long weekend in March.
We DO NOT under any circumstances recommend anyone with any size dog purchase Sir Grange. Because Sir Grange’s lateral growth is so slow, it is extremely difficult for it to recover and repair from dog urine damage.
Installing your new lawn
- Spread Lawn Launcher on top of prepared area
Sir Grange is generally a lawn which will be slow to establish. Recent trials have proven Sir Grange will establish faster if you use a sub soil base with a predominantly sand profile. Apply your starter fertiliser as supplied (you will find the correct amount of Lawn Launcher – which is a combination of starter fertiliser and water crystals – in the clear bag on top of your turf pallet) evenly over the entire area, prior to installing your new lawn.
- Lay turf in a staggered ‘brickwork’ formation
Place your slabs of turf around the perimeter of the area and lay between the perimeter. Stagger the joins in a brickwork fashion to avoid erosion and butt the turf closely together to avoid gaps.
- Cut and shape turf to suit your area
When cutting is required use a spade, sharp knife or shears, but don’t throw away the cuts. When you have finished laying you will probably find there are a few unusual spaces to fill ad these bits will come in handy.
- Roll your new turf to improve contact with soil
This step is options and not critical to the long term success of your new lawn project. It is however good practice to perform this process to enhance root contact wth the soil.
