    GREAT MIX! Very happy with the way this seed took to our backyard. Had previously bought couch before i realised how much shade we got in the winter. Based on McKays recommendations reseeded with the elite blend and it has really taken off! great grass, the dogs love it and very durable.

    SOD - WHY! Live in Perth, couldn't find any sod with grass we liked Combined with Kentucky bluegrass ( 20%) and love the colour texture Seeding our own was easy and gave us what we wanted . The staff were very helpful with advice and information. Great! Will be ordering more for the front yard ( and our friends will be too! )

    GREAT GRASS I live in Victoria and planted this seed just before the cold of winter set in and I was most surprised by the excellent grass that has grown considering the time of year I planted it. Very happy and an excellent product.
