High drought, sun and wear tolerance once established
Sir Grange is hardy and tough. It suits full sun situations and has high drought tolerance once established on a good sand/organic or 80/20 base of at least 100-200mm, which is an increasingly important consideration for both residential and commercial lawns. It also has a high tolerance for foot traffic and wear, with excellent self-repairing capability once the root zone is established to a depth of 200mm.
- Can handle full sun
- High drought tolerance (once established)
- High wear tolerance (once established)

High shade tolerance
Has your garden got areas of shade? Not a problem, Sir Grange Zoysia can handle it. Unlike some other common grass varieties that require full sun to thrive, Sir Grange has a very high tolerance of shady situations after establishment, needing minimal direct sunlight. Shade performance is maximised when wear in the shaded areas is minimal.

Less maintenance means more time to enjoy your garden!

Not only that, but it is less demanding of nutrients than other grass types!
