This month we are excited about our feature product, Sapphire turf. Sapphire has all the benefits of the other high performance soft leaf Buffalo grass varieties (less watering, deep roots, greener in winter, hard wearing etc.) along with the added benefit of a finer texture.
Sapphire Buffalo grass does not rely on fine leaves for its fine texture, but its folding leaf. When Sapphire is mature, its leaf folds at tight angles along its axis, resulting in a finer texture. This is important, because fine leaf Buffalo lawns usually have thatch problems, are shallow rooted, poor wearing & slow growing.
A fine leaf Sapphire Buffalo lawn does not suffer from these problems. Here’s why Sapphire is such a wonderful all rounder:
Excellent Shade Tolerance - Sapphire is the no. 1 Buffalo in shade. This has been based on averages gathered from Horticultural Australia and Department of Primary Industries trial data. Sapphire is recommended for up to 70% shade in areas with low wear and up to 50% shade in areas with moderate to high wear.
Fast Recovery From Wear - Sapphire Buffalo Grass has rapid growth across the ground. This high performance allows it to cope well with high traffic situations. In extra high wear areas it is recommended that you fertilise and water more than normal.
