How DNA Sir Walter Turf is certified

Sir Walter Buffalo - Low Allergenic LawnAusGAP is the Australian Turf Accreditation Program that provides turf buyers with assurance that the turf you are buying adheres to stringent quality standards.

The AusGAP program ensures that the turf that you receive is a pure product. AusGAP certified programs are visually-free of weeds and pests and disease damage and will live up to the claims made on the product warranties that accompany every delivery of AusGAP certified turf. This commitment to quality and accountability is the reason AusGAP certified grasses are the best on the market.

How does DNA Sir Walter Turf earn an AusGAP certification?

Any turf product receiving the AusGAP certification must adhere to strict set of quality standards. There is a 5-step process that can take up to 24 months to achieve final certification. The process involves onsite inspections and audits to prove the business complies with AusGAP’s requirements. DNA Sir Walter Turf meets these exacting standards to be a perfect product for Australian lawns!
