Brisbane - Different Turf Breeds Demonstration Plots
#1

OK, time for me to come clean - I know what couch looks like but there have been so many new species entered the market since last time I did this in 2002 that I lump the rest of them into "carpet grass" :blink: - I've tried checking out various websites but photos don't really cut it - so I was stoked to see this come up on the Lawn Fanatics Facebook group:-

I'll be checking it out when the weather cools a bit - could even have a Lawnclub meetup/coffee/beer there for Brisbane members who want to?

Thanks Katie, I'll check it out - it'll give some background to the field visit - nothing like seeing the stuff in the flesh.

All those growers linked to the website would be so happy to talk to you - let me know if and where you want to go and I can put you in touch with some.

Thanks again Katie, maybe we could turn this into something more than just for my edumacation -

 

don't think there's too many of us on here laying turf but be nice to be able to give authoritative advice on cut height, irrigation, cut frequency, pest and disease control, scarifying, coring, top dressing etc for the different lawn types

Absolutely ... and that is why speaking to our growers directly could be a great link. Alternately I work in this sector and can offer advice.

 

Cheers

Katie
