, or Zoysia Matrella, is the lawn for new renovations and a backyard you want to “pop.” This lawn will give your new backyard the wow factor and have the neighbours asking how you keep your lawn so beautiful so easily. Shadetuff™ is the first lawn to go against the stigma, “all shade tolerant varieties must have broad leaves” – making Shadetuff™ the first fine leaf, shade tolerant variety on the market here in South East Queensland. Shadetuff™ requires a minimum of 3 hours of direct sunlight per day which betters even the strongest current buffalo varieties on the market. This lawn is the highest winter performer with outstanding colour year-round. Its thick thatch and soft leaf provides a tough surface for parties, pools and your family pet.
