Q: Is Nara™ Native Turf salt tolerant?

A : Nara™ turf grass has excellent salt tolerance, so in this respect, it is an excellent choice for coastal regions where other grasses simply cannot cope with excessive amounts of salt in the environment.

Also, if the region you live in often experiences high water restrictions or drought which result in the killing off of many lawn types in your neighbourhood, then Nara™ turf will be an excellent turf to consider, as it will cope and recover very well in these conditions.

Q: How Often Does Nara™ NativeTurf Seed?

A : The first year after laying Nara™ native turf, it will seed quite a lot. The second year it settles down, provided you fertilise in spring. It will generally have a burst of seed in early spring and won't seed for the rest of the year. This is a distinct advantage, as Nara™ turf will only need more mowing in early spring to remove seed head, compared to Couch and Buffalos that will need mowing to remove seed head at many times of the year.

Q: When Is The Best Time To Plant Nara™ Native Turf?

A : Nara™ native turf prefers to be installed when the weather is not too cold. It is best to avoid laying Nara™ turf in the following months in certain regions:

Avoid laying Nara™ Turf between the 25th April - 25th August in Victoria, SA, WA

Avoid laying Nara™ Turf between the 15th May - 15th August in Sydney

Nara™ native turf can be layed anytime of the year Brisbane and further North. This is the same for all Zoysia types. Nara™ turf can actually be laid in the cooler months in Sydney provided the turf is kept moist till it roots out, but as it takes up to 7 weeks to root out in winter, we feel it is best to wait for warmer weather. In warmer weather Nara™ Zoysia will establish relatively quickly from turf. In early spring or autumn it may take a week longer than other turf types to establish, but what's a week compared to a lifetime of low maintenance?
