Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo is the natural selection, a premium quality soft leaf buffalo that has stood the test of time. It has proven that it will go anywhere and grow anywhere. Sir Walter Buffalo is 100% born and bred under tough Australian conditions with excellent drought tolerance. It's a low maintenance lawn and a good repairer coping well with high traffic volumes from pests and children.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn is a licensed grower of Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo and honors each purchase with a certificate of authenticity. Our Sir Walter is genuine, high quality, DNA tested Sir Walter Buffalo and not one of the imitation varieties currently within the turf industry. There is only one Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo grass.
Sir Walter DNA Certified is soft, lush and beautifully green. It has a broad leaf and a tight growth habit with the ability to hold out most weeds and can repair itself quickly when damaged. Sir Walter Buffalo will thrive in a range of conditions from full sun or shade, in extreme heat, frost or drought.
Sir Walter DNA Certified is ideal for that problem area, particularly if is shaded by trees, fences or buildings. It’s a great choice for the family garden, schools, parks and commercial areas. It's easy to see why Sir Walter is Australia's favourite buffalo lawn.
Sir Walter requires frequent watering until established, however once established it demonstrates a high drought tolerance and will use less water than other lawn varieties like Nullarbor Couch, Eureka Kikuyu and RTF Fescue. During the warmer months water generously 1 to 2 times per week . Watering frequencies should be adjusted depending on weather conditions and soil types.
A deep root system is essential to having a drought tolerant lawn. We recommend watering your buffalo for longer periods of time to help promote a deep root system.
Sir Walter looks best when mown every 7-14 days at a height of approx. 40mm during the warmer months. During the cooler months mowing will become less of a chore and you will only need to mow when necessary. Spring is the best time to de-thatch Sir Walter. Mow very low at the beginning of spring to remove the thatch (scalp). Ensure you pick up the clippings to allow for fresh new growth.
To maintain a healthy lawn with dense coverage apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 2-3 times per year. Otherwise, maintenance requirements for Sir Walter are relatively low, including maintenance for pests and diseases.

Thank you to you (Andrew) and your workers for contributing to a successful race track upgrade. Your work is of very high standard and much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the races, where you can see the track upgrade in use.
Thanks very much for the Sir Walter DNA lawn and thanks for your great service. The whole idea to use Sir Walter was to highlight the tinted windows and sandstone on our new home. I believe I have achieved this. Let alone the easy maintenance going forward.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn provided us with an grass option to complement our modern home. We chose Sir Walter Buffalo that has an intense green colour and its softness suits our children playing outside. It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any instant lawn option.
Just a little note of thanks for arranging the delivery and drop off of lawn. We are busy watering it regularly to keep it looking amazing. Your customer service has been awesome and something of which you should be proud.
A house just isn't a home without lawn, right from my first enquiry with Sunnyside I can not fault their service. I was going to lay the turf myself but at late notice I engaged them to lay it as well. I am so impressed with my Kikuyu lawn and the way it has been installed, it's perfectly finished our new house. The only thing smiling more than us is our dog!
Karrawatta Viticulture and Wines would like to thank Sheridan and the team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn for expanding the lawn area around our office. The quality of service and the product delivery has been second to none. Thanks again Sunnyside!
We would like to thank you for the Sir Walter Buffalo lawn layed during our recent court upgrade. We can now safely accommodate the growing numbers of participants using the facility with increased opportunities to train and play netball day and night all year round.
I am so happy with my Sir Walter Buffalo, it is green, lush and beautiful and has added so much value to my house. I was more than satisfied with the customer service provided by Sheridan & Andrew. I was very impressed with the follow up phone call I received and felt Sunnyside Instant Lawn not only provided me with great turf but they provided me with a very personal, wonderful service.
The quality and condition of the Sir Walter DNA you delivered to Blair Athol was exceptional, best turf I have ever laid. Thank you so much.
My client came home at lunchtime yesterday to check it out. She was so happy and excited, she couldn’t stop crying. It was the first time in her 45 year life that she had ever had lawn in her own home. Hard to imagine that, life without a lawn.
We couldn’t be more happy with the service and the end result. The Turf Guy, (Jamie) was very accommodating in meeting the needs of our centre and scheduled a time to do the work on a Saturday, ensuring the safety of the children and the families. Lots of families have commented on how amazing the lawn looks…
We are very happy with our RTF Tall Fescue Lawn supplied and laid by Sunnyside Instant Lawn. The advice from Andrew & Sheridan was very professional and we would certainly recommend them.
Delivery was great! The driver called before hand and was very careful with machinery on the driveway. Turf was in amazing condition when it arrived and the size of the slabs made it super easy to install.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn recently supplied and line planted approximately 15,000 square metres of turf at the Bordertown Racing Club. During this project, I found Andrew and his team to be very proficient. All work was carried out on time, offering good advice regarding the proper care required to get the grass up and going, they also followed up the progress of the turf after it was planted.
I love my new lawns! I was so impressed with the team's obvious knowledge and thorough manner. They advised the most suited turf type for this area's soil and climate. Their prices were very competitive and they had my windswept wasteland looking verdant and established in the space of a day! The team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn were, at all times, helpful, timely and professional.
Thanks Sunnyside Instant Lawn, our lawn has come up awesome. Great product, great service, great price, what more could you ask for.
Thank you for the great RTF Fescue lawn we bought last week. It has made a huge difference to our house already.
