The Block is set for a “tree change” featuring TifTuf!
We’re excited to announce Lawn Solutions Australia has teamed up with the Block and will be the exclusive turf supplier with thanks to Lilydale Instant Lawn for this season!
The reality TV show The Block, returns to Channel 9 and 9Now, swapping the city for the green grass of the countryside. The Block heads to Gisborne South in Victoria’s beautiful Macedon Ranges, where five couples will each build a 500-square-metre house, tennis courts, wineries, and even a lake with TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda being the turf of choice!
TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda
TifTuf was hand selected out of almost 30,000 different varieties, showing superior qualities in drought tolerance, shade tolerance, wear tolerance and winter colour. These qualities make it the perfect option for the climate experienced in Gisborne.
TifTuf is the only grass to be awarded the Smart Approved WaterMark for water efficiency, it is Australia’s best couch grass (proven through extensive independent trials) and it’s exclusively available from Australia’s best turf suppliers, Lawn Solutions Australia Members. These reasons and more are why TifTuf has been selected as the exclusive turf variety for this season of The Block.
Each team has been given their own house to renovate and landscape. Each home needs to qualify for a 7-star energy rating, incorporating solar panels, sewage recycling, and water tanks. Sustainable and environmentally friendly products have long been a focus of the program. TifTuf perfectly fits the bill for these large lifestyle properties.
TifTuf is also going to be featured front and centre as contestants arrive at Block HQ for judging. Host Scotty Cam is also getting in on the TifTuf action, with his very own involvement. He’ll be renovating the property’s original homestead built in the mid-19th century. The team at Franklin Landscapes has done an incredible job with the landscaping for this part of the project, which provides plenty of lush green TifTuf surrounding the rejuvenated homestead.
We can’t wait to see how this incredible grass is used on the show to create beautiful and environmentally friendly landscaped garden areas.
If you are looking for a new lawn worthy of The Block, you just found it. It’s TifTuf.
