A beautifully maintained lawn is the epitome of the Australian urban backyard.
A level expanse of soft green grass encourages families and friends to rest and play.
Materials in the Raw can supply turf and all of the products you need to lay and maintain a lush healthy lawn. The key is in selecting the right turf and then undertaking careful preparation before you lay.
For full sun positions Village Green, a modern variety of kikuyu, offers a dense green lawn that withstands wear and is active in winter. Village Green has a massive root system, it is measured to have 50% more roots per volume of soil than common Kikuyu. This gives it an exceptional ability to stay green even under low water and fertiliser environments.
If you are after that bowling green consider Legend Couch. Legend Couch is a beautiful fine, dark green leafed grass, which is drought tolerant and resilient.
For shade you cant go past Palmetto Buffalo. Palmetto is a soft leafed buffalo and is hardy and kid friendly. It can take up to 50% shade and is bred to have reduced watering and mowing.
Materials in the Raw supplies Turf Blend as an underlay for the establishment of your lawn. Turf Blend is a sandy loam with good waterholding and drainage. We also stock Premium Lawn Builder which is a sand based high performance top dressing. Both of these products can be viewed on our soils page.
