Australian-bred Sapphire Buffalo® fine leaf textured turf has unrivalled softness, exceptional shade tolerance, and durability. Sapphire Buffalo is the pinnacle in low-maintenance luxury; it resists drought, wears well, and looks great.

A Sapphire Buffalo lawn is the best option for any property where comfort and low care are paramount.

Australian breeders started with the older Sir Walter Buffalo Turf to create the newer Sapphire Buffalo. Sapphire Buffalo, as with any newer variety, offers superior aesthetics and is the most shade-tolerant Soft Leaf Buffalo.

Why Opt for a Sapphire Buffalo Grass Turf?

Numerous homeowners pick Sapphire Buffalo over other varieties for their lawns because of its many benefits such as:

  • Excellent for use in partially shaded regions - in 70% shade cover, maintains quality and growth and outperforms other Buffalo varieties such as Shademaster, Sir Walter, Kings Pride and Matilda.
  • Able to endure severe weather - flourishes in most parts of Australia and also has exceptional cold tolerance. It is drought-resilient once planted — however, like other plants does require water.
  • Convincingly long-lasting and simple to care for - a hardy and resilient lawn, typical of high-quality Buffalo cultivars while also recovering quickly from wear. The thick foliage that makes Sapphire Buffalo so drought tolerant also makes it resistant to weeds. Its low thatch rate makes it easier to enjoy your lawn and less time spent tending to it than other Buffalo kinds.
  • Excellent dark green hue - Sapphire Buffalo is a lush green in colour and is known for its gentle feel. Finely folded leaves and dense growth of Sapphire Turf are the secret to its supple texture and outstanding winter colour.
