Lawn Seed – Why it’s a Bad Idea

A great lawn requires great skill

All great Aussie lawns like Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo, Eureka Kikuyu, Nullarbor Couch and Platinum Zoysia are what they call male sterile and cannot be grown from seed. Not even on the turf farm can they be grown from seed, they have to be grown from live vegetative material that takes a lot of skill from our Aussie turf farmers to turn into lawn turf. If an experienced turf producer can’t grow it from seed – what chance do we have?

Grass grown from seed struggles in hot weather

It is true that seed will grow into some sort of ground cover in the colder wetter climates of Australia, however it will not be a drought tolerant lawn for life. Usually it will be a cool season variety such as a seeded rye or fescue that may give a quick flush of green in a colder climate but once the hot weather comes along it can be gone forever.

See the difference for yourself

A good test if you’re still not convinced is to ask both your local LSA turf supplier and your seed supplier to show you a couple of front lawns they have supplied in your local area that are 5 years or older. You will be amazed at how few are grown from seed.
