Doug Benjafield welcomes you to Stanley River Turf. We are located on the Stanley River at Peachester, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
The river provides a reliable licensed water supply for irrigation of the Wintergreen Couch turf paddocks via underground main lines and travelling irrigators. The turf is grown both on river flats with loamy soil, and gentle slopes with red Kraznozem volcanic soils, giving us the advantage of being able to produce and harvest during nearly all climatic conditions.
We specialise in Wintergreen couch. Wintergreen is very hardy and not too demanding in care and maintenance. Weeds in the turf can be controlled using selective herbicides. When well looked after the turf has a fine soft leaf with a deep green colour, and true to its name, it survives during dry and cold weather to brighten up when the weather does.
Because Wintergreen has been available for many years, it is not subject to Plant Variety Rights levies and is therefore less expensive to grow and market than some of the more recent varieties. Cover much more area for a similar cost! Just like the final paint job on a new house, new turf sets the picture off and says “We’ve finished!” The job is done!
