Palmetto Buffalo, Empire Zoysia, Village Green, Kikuyu, and Wintergreen are all excellent turf in their own right. Each one is suitable for Western Australian conditions as long as you prepare the ground before laying with a good lawn fertilizer and a wetting agent or moisture retainer. You must re-apply the fertilizer every 6 – 8 weeks during the summer months, apply before winter and in spring, and the wetting agent/moisture retainer as per instructions on packet/bottle.In shaded areas it is best to keep the lawn longer.
