More than 23 years ago, Andrew Longmore leased a small amount of land with the aim of trying his hand at growing top-quality turf. Today, Rivturf is a thriving family business with 100 acres of land growing four premium turf varieties.
We’re lifelong Wagga locals, and we’re proud to be part of the dynamic community here and in the surrounding regions we service, from Albury-Wodonga right up to Canberra, Queanbeyan and Yass. We’ve spent years testing different grass varieties right here on our local turf farms, so they’re uniquely acclimatised to handle the extremes of weather, local soils, and the family lifestyles we enjoy.
Service and confidence
Rivturf has earned a solid reputation as preferred turf suppliers offering exceptional products and down-to-earth, friendly service. We’re all about making the whole experience as easy, enjoyable and positive for you as we can.
It makes no difference to us whether you’re after a small patch of green for your home or a huge order for a commercial project. We get to know every customer so the solution we provide is the right one, from the turf variety to delivery, installation and maintenance advice. All of our products are AusGAP certified and covered by Lawn Solutions Australia’s ten-year guarantee, so you can rest easy knowing we have you covered.
Sustainable from the start
At Rivturf, we believe that a stunning green lawn need not be a drain on the planet’s resources – and in our drought-affected agricultural regions, it’s crucial. Our drought-tolerant varieties require minimal water to grow, and to establish and maintain once transplanted in their new homes.
All our turf is nurtured with recycled water from the local abattoirs, which then drains to the Murrumbidgee River. This not only avoids drawing on limited fresh water supplies – the organic nutrients in the effluent water also reduce the amount of fertiliser product required, in turn protecting the natural balance of the groundwater and soil.
