primo zoysia

The difficulty in buying turf for both domestic and larger commercial sites in the past has been that there has not been any independent quality standard or organisation to certify that the turf grown is done so to a certain standard.

That uncertainty has changed enormously in recent times with the adoption of a new turf accreditation program AusGAP.

The AusGAP program works with breeders and turfgrowers to help maintain that the turf-type that is specified or ordered is in fact the original grass-type that was bred and carries that brand.

All Lawn Solutions Australia suppliers are accredited by AusGAP.
