Matilda manages to retain its lush, evergreen colour all year round.

Matilda has been extensively tested and is well-suited to Australian conditions; out-performing customer expectations in almost any environment. Matilda has shown it can resist weeds, having a very tight and dense root system. This also helps with its wear resistance.

Shade Master’s Soft-Leaf Buffalo has an average water usage requirement, but isn’t as drought tolerant as some of the other varieties of buffalo out there. Its durability is good, with the thick grass providing people and pets with a soft surface to walk and rest on. It also shows great recovery to damage throughout the year. Its maintenance remains low like all Buffo grass, and due to its thickness and high matt, weeds are prevented from growing through.

During the winter months, this grass will develop a purple colour on the blade heads; however this will vanish quickly during spring once the weather heats back up again. Similar to the Matilda Buffalo, Shade Master Soft-Leaf Buffalo would be an ideal choice for family lawns, high traffic areas like roadsides and alongside garden beds due to its non-invasive properties.


Originally native to the highlands of East Africa, Kikuyu is now neutralised in many coastal regions of Australia. It grows very vigorously and for this reason, it one of the most durable lawns around, tolerating long dry patches.

With medium broad leaves and very coarse to touch, this lawn can still be suitable for residential use, however it is ideal for commercial use in schools, sporting fields and semi-arid areas. It is also used for erosion control. This variety of grass thrives in full sun, and will grow poorly in shady areas. It is most vigorous in warmer climates, which gives it an excellent tolerance to heat with very little water needed. For this reason, Kikuyu will require more frequent mowing than other types of grass such as Buffalo.
