Specifying and buying turf is about to become a whole lot easier with the launch in March 2014 of a new national group of growers offering industry best practice and a uniformly branded range of turf.
Lawn Solutions Australia brings together the collective wisdom and knowledge of Australia’s leading accredited turf producers – some with 30-plus years’ experience – under a single banner to supply nationally branded turf varieties, as well as a range of value-add products and services.
The group and its exclusive turf brands have been developed off the back of the success of Australia’s No 1 soft-leaf buffalo, Sir Walter. All the members of the new group are Sir Walter growers, and are promising the same ‘gold standard’ of performance in a new range of turf brands, lawn care products and services.
It’s good news in an industry where turf varieties quickly change in the market or are branded differently across the country, causing confusion among specifiers and customers.
“Currently there are nearly 70 turf varieties in the Australian market, with more on the way,” says Lawn Solutions Australia Business Manager, Simon Adermann.
“Each of our members will grow and sell the most appropriate turf varieties for their local regions, but they will be marketed under our uniform, national brand names.
“It will make it a lot easier for our commercial industry bodies to specify turf, particularly for statewide or national tenders and supply contracts.”
The Lawn Solutions Australia ‘house of brands’ is made up of:
Sir Walter soft-leaf buffalo
Nullarbor Couch Commercial, Nullarbor Sport, Nullarbor Home
Tropical Carpet Grass
Lawn Solutions Australia
P: 1300 883 711
Turfgro premium turf underlay;
The Big Green Bag offering compost, bark, stones and soil for those smaller, harder to access
a wide range of lawn care products.
The group is also setting a new benchmark for direct customer service through The Turf Guy.
The Turf Guy will be a mobile customer service provider, making small turf deliveries, doing quotes and measuring up jobs, arranging preparation for turf installation, supplying fertiliser and other lawn care products, and generally making sure customers are getting everything they need in the way of support.
“The launch of Lawn Solutions Australia will be a game-changer for our industry and our customers,” says Adermann.
“We’re taking the Australian turf industry to a new level of professionalism, and our commercial customers will be the big winners.”
