WA Sir Grange lawn owned by Tim Johnson

The way we live has changed in Australia over the last 30 years. As a society we have different expectations, including the way we choose to spend our down time and how our decisions affect both our immediate and greater environment. We constantly look to make improvements. Our lawns are no exception.

New grass varieties are replacing older varieties. These older varieties that we have grown up with need more mowing watering and fertilising. The new age grass varieties are better suited to our more environmentally conscious lifestyles. Unfortunately, new age grass takes years to breed and develop. It can take up to 25 years for University professors and plant breeders to develop and prove these new age grasses before they are released out into the market.

New age grass varieties must be more drought tolerant, frost tolerant, shade tolerant and require less fertiliser and mowing before they tick all the boxes. They must then have proven sustainability and be viable for farming and the end user. Very few of these sterile, hybrid cultivars pass all the testing. This is why it takes so long and is such a pain staking process. It takes a special person to look at grass plots for decades – searching for the super grass!

One of the most successful of these new age grass varieties is Sir Grange Zoysia, known the rest of the world as Zeon.

Sir Grange Zoysia - Super Grass

Sir Grange (Zeon Zoysia) is a Zoysia Matrella. Hand selected from over 10,000 different turf cultivar varieties. With its superior qualities making it stand out from the crowd. It was bred by Texas-based Bladerunner Farms (under the name Zeon Zoysia) who have the largest privately owned zoysia grass research facility in the world.

Sir Grange has caught the worldwide turf market by storm. It is a fine bladed premium turf variety, which has high shade tolerance and very low nutrient and water requirements. Sir Grange was developed first for the golf industry. However thanks to its characteristics, it makes a fantastic home lawn. Its adaptability to a variety of climates, and its beautiful dark green leaf have seen it become the #1 selling zoysia grass for homes in the USA.

Is Sir Grange Suitable for Australian Conditions

Lawn Solutions Australia (LSA) is a network of Aussie turf farmers who have an extensive R&D program that includes partnerships with some of the world’s leading turf grass research facilities. This partnership brings Australia the best offerings in new age grass varieties. Many proven cultivars are chosen by LSA and bought through the quarantine process to our R and D plots in Australia. Here they go through similar testing criteria that they have already passed in their country of origin. The goal is to see if they perform under Australian conditions. Unfortunately, Australia proves too harsh for many and they do not perform as well as hoped, Sir Grange however was  a cultivar that has performed extremely well.

Lawn Solutions Australia’s commitment to source modern grass varieties has meant we now have a fine leafed grass available. Ideal for small block living where shade and access for maintenance are a problem for other grass varieties.
