Seed v lawn

Seed – v- Lawn

A great lawn requires great skill

All great Aussie lawns like Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo are what they call male sterile and cannot be grown from seed. Not even a turf farms can grow it that way, it has to be grown from live vegetative material that takes a lot of skill to turn into lawn turf. If an experienced turf producer can’t grow it from seed – what chance do you have?

Grass grown from seed struggles in hot weather

It is true that seed will grow into some sort of ground cover in the colder wetter climates of Australia, however it will not be a drought tolerant lawn for life. Usually it will be a cool season variety such as a seeded rye or fescue that may give a quick flush of green in a colder climate but once the hot weather comes along it can be gone forever.

Seed can be a budget option, but you will find that it takes a substantial amount of time and money to get the result you are after. You will be required to over sow a number of times and you still won’t be able to guarantee a successful strike rate and germination to get a nice consistent finish. With weather conditions potentially washing your seed away, birds and other animals also eating the seed, it can be a significantly challenging process to undertake.

See the difference for yourself

A good test if you’re still not convinced is to ask both to ask to see lawns that are 5 years or older. Compare one that was grown from seed and a lawn grown from turf. You will be amazed at how few are grown from seed.

The most effective way of establishing a great lawn is by installing instant turf. By doing so, you are putting in what is already a healthy established grass and planting it ready to go at your own home. Within a few weeks the rolls will have established together and you will have a consistent healthy lawn.
