Durban Grass

Durban Grass or Sweet Smother grass, Dactyloctenium australe
This is the grass of choice if you want to establish a lawn under trees in heavy shade. It is a turf grass suitable to the warm east coast and available in Sydney from John Smith Turf. I love it because it is very soft to walk on or lie on, on a hot summer day. It is not really hard wearing so is not great for kicking a football around on or if you have a large dog which likes to dig.
Now is the time to start a fertilizer program for lawns .I like to use the Neutrog brand Upstart and Rapid Raiser because they are organic based and quick acting.
