As the name suggests, Nara is a native born Aussie. It’s been developed for our conditions and will suit you if you want a low maintenance lawn turf, that’s also good on the environment because it needs less water and less mowing. Nara has a fine texture, and a beautiful appearance which is one of the main reasons people choose this turf.
Nara Native Turf is a great all purpose turf that can handle many conditions. It is the only general purpose native turf and is the perfect compliment for any native garden or landscape.
Nara is native to Australia, from northern Queensland all the way down to Tasmania, to the centre of Australia and Adelaide. Zoysia macrantha is well suited to most parts including Perth, where it has performed very well, making it ideal for your local Australian lawn.
Based on our research, Nara will require about 20% less mowing than buffalo, 35% less than couch and 55% less than Kikuyu.
Nara can be mown exactly how you would mow couch, Kikuyu or Buffalo. Short medium or long. In general though, it’s better to not mow too short as this will stress all lawns no matter the grass type. (Especially in drought). Nara will scalp less than Couch when mown.
Nara is less invasive than other turfs so you won’t have to edge as often.
Nara is a Zoysia macrantha, which is only found in Australia. It will generally require only once a year fertilising except in high wear conditions where twice a year is recommended.
