We like this one article only because we're suckers for a good grass story plus Marg resonates with not only us at Oasis Lawns but probably plenty of frustrated gardeners with her advice i.e. just get out there and weed. Story of our lives most weekends.
That’s the advice from Australia’s largest turf growing group, Lawn Solutions Australia (LSA) and member grower Oasis Lawns.
Poor quality control coupled with a confusing selection of grass varieties is undermining homeowners’ confidence in Australia’s turf industry.
“Take buffalo grass for example. There are so many buffalo grasses on the market, but very few are pure and true to type,” Oasis Lawns says.
“We often come across a buffalo grass sold as a particular strain, but find it’s infested with other seed types or another variety like couch.”
“The consumer is none the wiser and wonders why the lawn he or she paid for isn’t performing they way it’s supposed to.”
“The end result is an unhappy customer, a bad name for buffalo grass and damage to the reputation of the industry as a whole.”
All LSA growers adhere to stringent accreditation processes and quality control standards, and we are assessed annually to ensure we maintain those standards,” Oasis Lawns says.
“We back that up with a 10-year national product warranty on all our turf products.”
The LSA warranty certifies that a lawn supplied by an LSA member has been grown and harvested to stringent standards, is free of weeds and disease on delivery, and will perform to its maximum potential in its new environment (subject to proper maintenance requirements and conditions).
Oasis Lawns also makes choosing lawns easier by fully explaining the benefits of our three turf varieties.
For example, every LSA grower across Australia sells a branded couch grass.
“Even though the actual couch grass type grown in Melbourne will be different to that grown in Central Queensland, homeowners can be confident it’s the best type for their particular climatic region.”
“At the end of the day, when you order turf from Oasis Lawns you know you are getting the very best performing type for your local growing conditions.”
LSA is also committed to finding the best new lawn varieties for the future. It’s a massive and lengthy investment on their part, but it will ensure Australian consumers continue to get the very best turf products available, wherever in Australia they live.
