Turf Varieties

 
 

Green couch & other turf varieties for use in Central Queensland

 
At Marian Lawns, we currently have 3 native Australian turf varieties that we install across a wide area of Central and North Queensland.

In addition, we're in the process of developing and growing several other native grass varieties to be seeded in late 2019.

Each variety of turf is unique, and requires specialised care however, as all of them require regular de-thatching, we recommend mowing to a shorter length to minimise the risk of grass diseases.
