DNA Certified Sir Walter - Australia's favourite buffalo
Ten things to love about a DNA Certified Sir Walter Baffalo lawn:
DNA certified - original breeder guarantee
You're guaranteed you're getting the genuine Sir Walter Buffalo! Each year, a sample of our farm-grown DNA Certified Sir Walter is sent to the original Sir Walter breeder for DNA testing to ensure that the Sir Walter supply you're receiving from us is genetically pure - Australia's favourite lawn; not some reject variety!
DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo is the perfect choice for those shaded areas, requiring only 3-4 hours of sun a day.
All warm season grasses will lose colour in heavy frost, but our DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo will remain the thickest and lushes lawn on the street, which will also help to reduce the risk of winter weeds. Use with ColourGuard, and you'll have a 'summer lawn' all year 'round!
Whether it's a game of Aussie cricket or a game of fetch with the pooch, DNA Certified Sir Walter can withstand it all!
Very drought tolerant
DNA Certified Sir Walter is an environmentally sustainable lawn requiring less water due to its deep root systems.
DNA Certified Sir Walter is the easiest lawn to maintain. Even with barely any inputs, your DNA Certified Sir Walter will stay looking as good as the first day it was laid. We recommend mowing your DNA Certified Sir Walter once a week during the growing season - but don't be alarmed, it won't punish you if you mow it fortnightly!
Be reassured that your new DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo lawn won't invade surrounding gardens.
You don't have to have a green thumb to keep your DNA Certified SIr Walter looking lush and green. Just a simple seasonal feed will ensure your lawn is the envy of your street!

An Interview with DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo:
Where did DNA Sir Walter come from?
DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo was born and bred right here in Australia in 1997. Founded in the Hunter Region of NSW, in its humble beginnings Sir Walter was strategically grown and tested all over Australia. Due to its superior shade and drought tolerance, child and pet friendliness, and low maintenance requirements, it outperformed all other buffalo lawns, quickly making it Australia's favourite lawn with over 60 million metres of DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo being supplied across Australia today.
Why was DNA Certified Sir Walter developed?
DNA Certified Sir Walter was introduced to Aussie yards because of its superior performance all over the country. Being born and bred in Australia, it was suited for our harsh climate. DNA Certified Sir Walter was found to be able to grow in full sun and part shade areas, child and pet friendly, and very low maintenance. This made DNA Certified Sir Walter buffalo the obvious choice for Aussie lawns!
Why did we start growing DNA Certified Sir Walter Buffalo here in Australia?
We started growing DNA Certified Sir Walter buffalo because of its superior performance. We have peace of mind when we supply DNA Certified Sir Walter turf to our customers because we know it will grow just about anywhere! So in six months time, we know that your lawn will still look as good as it did the day it was laid.
How do I care for my DNA Certified Sir Walter Lawn?
She's a great, low-maintenance, self-repairing grass, but like all living things, she needs a little love. Here are some DNA Certified Sir Walter care tips that we recommend:
Three hours of sun to all-day sunshine and they'll be happy little blades of grass.
Requires less mowing than most other common lawn varieties. For best results, we recommend mowing her once a week, but don't stress: she won't punish you if you mow her fortnightly. Of course, we always recommend slightly longer length for the cooler months.
DNA Certified Sir Walter requires much less water than most other common lawn varieties as well, and that's great news for our environment and sustainability. Once established, we recommend watering less frequently, but heavier soakings to encourage a deep roots structure.
Requires less fertiliser than most other grass varieties. We recommend fertilising around three to four times each year, generally every season. This will keep your lawn the envy of your street!
Because your DNA Certified Sir Walter turf is weed-resistant, there won't be a lot of weeding required. However, we always recommend keeping an eye out for weeds, especially in Autumn, take care of them immediately and you’ll never have a worry!
If you find your lawn becoming very spongy and thick and aren't happy with the feel, then you can scalp or dethatch your DNA Certified Sir Walter lawn. Scalp in early spring.
Pest resistant also, you won't have too many concerns with lawn grubs and other pests in your DNA Certified Sir Walter grass. Again though, we always recommend keeping an eye out for signs of pests and treating immediately.
What is the difference between "DNA Certified Sir Walter" & Sir Walter?
DNA Certified Sir Walter is genetically certified which means that it is the genuine Sir Walter and not some other reject buffalo.
Each year we send a sample of our DNA Certified Sir Walter off our farm to Lawn Solutions Australia for DNA testing against the original plant to check its genetic purity.
DNA Certified Sir Walter undergoes further testing at every pre-harvest stage to ensure it is free of pests, disease and weeds and subsequently approved by AusGAP.
Put simply, the DNA Certification ensures you're receiving the highest quality of lawn that will perform for many years ahead! If you purchase Sir Walter and do not receive a DNA Certified Certificate along with a 10-year Product Warranty, then you have no guarantee that your new turf is actually Sir Walter - or even a buffalo grass!
What's the 10-year product warranty?
