Best Lawn For High Traffic Areas

If your client has dogs or hard playing kids, these are the best wear tolerant turf varieties.

Lawns in Full Sun
Kenda Kikuyu, or other Male Sterile Kikuyu lawns. Kikuyu is more wear tolerant than Buffalo and Zoysia turf, but needs good sunny positions.

Lawns In Moderate Shade and Full Sun
Faster growing Zoysia types like Empire and Nara are excellent for warmer regions. Eg; Queensland and Northern NSW. In Sydney and Perth they are suitable, but only if fertilised well in spring and autumn with a slow release fertiliser. For colder regions like Melbourne, Zoysia is not suitable for high traffic areas.

Lawns In Shade and (Sun)
Sapphire Buffalo, Sir Walter Buffalo are good for most of Australia particularly for shade. For full sun Male Sterile Kikuyu forms are much harder wearing than Buffalo.
