WHERE IT’S SHADY

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Green Your Scene -

Some of the most pop­u­lar turf va­ri­eties in Aus­tralia th­ese days are the soft-leaf forms of buf­falo, such as Sir Wal­ter, Pal­metto and Sap­phire. Look­ing good al­most all year round (apart from a lit­tle dis­colour­ing dur­ing very cold weather), they also of­fer an­other great ben­e­fit – they can tol­er­ate par­tial shade. This makes them su­per use­ful for plant­ing un­der­neath large trees, as well as for use in ur­ban gar­dens where over­shad­ow­ing from ad­join­ing build­ings is a com­mon prob­lem.
