Best Turf For Cairns Tropical Climate

Cairns has a tropical climate, with hot, humid, and often wet summer months and mild, dry winters. 

Choosing a Zoysia grass variety is ideal for tropical conditions. They are a great choice for homeowners in need of a low maintanence, high drought tolerant, and weed resistant lawn. 

Nara™ Native Zoysia is a low maintenance, high salt tolerance and holds a strong winter colour. Its deep-rooted characteristics offer it outstanding drought tolerance and water efficiency as well as a high wear tolerance in both full sun and semi-shade. Its deep roots also mean it is superb for erosion control and for laying on sloping sites.


Turf Advice

How Much Does Turf Cost Per Square Metre?  

Different turf varieties vary in price and depend on their characteristics. Kenda Kikuyu is generally $7-$15 per square metre and is considered one of the most cost effective turf types. Whereas an all-rounder turf type like Palmetto Buffalo is around $10-$19 per square metre.

How Do You Prepare Turf for Laying?  

How you prepare turf can differ depending on the season and weather conditions. 

If you’re laying turf in hot weather, we recommend laying turf immediately after delivery to avoid the turf heating up and drying out overnight. We also recommend laying warm turf first (often slabs in the middle of the pallet are the warmest).  

For those laying turf in winter, be mindful of your climate and frost conditions – these will affect your lawn installation. Ensure your site is weed-free and cut/roll existing grass for removal. You may also want to cover it with coarse sand and a layer of fertiliser or topsoil.  

myhomeTURF’s network of turf suppliers and growers are highly experienced in turf site inspection, site preparation, and installation. We recommend reaching out to one of our professional turf suppliers for assistance when preparing turf for laying.  

How Thick is Turf When You Buy It?  

The thickness of your turf will depend on the season and conditions at the time of harvesting and usually 35-40mm. If you have any queries about turf delivery, please reach out to your local turf supplier for more information.
