Tropical Turf (Axonopus compressus), also known as Buffalo, Carpet Grass or Broadleaf, is an economical, creeping, stoloniferous, perennial, warm season grass. It has wide leaves (approx. 6mm) with blunt and rounded tips that have unique curling along the edges. Tropical turf will form a dense mat and crowd out other lawn species.

The Tropical Turf Cairns supplier is Harden Park Lawns. We grow, harvest, deliver and install this robust product, across the city and region. Please note that as its name suggests, Tropical Turf is best suited to sub-tropical and tropical regions of Australia. It will grow in most soil types (from clay to sandy soil), as long as moisture is available. It thrives in low fertility areas, but is not suitable for very sandy soils, due to its shallow root system. For more information please contact us on (07) 4055 4632 or

The Benefits of Tropical Turf

It’s a low maintenance lawn that spreads via low growing stolons. Tropical Turf may be left to grow long and then mowed down without any scalping.

This dense turf is particularly suited to the conditions of the tropics and is widely used in landscaping projects across North Queensland.

Please note Tropical Turf has low tolerance to the following: cold temperatures, wear and tear and herbicide.
