The Smart Approved Watermark was established by the

- Irrigation Australia
- The Nursery and Garden Industry Association

The Smart Approved Watermark provides an identifiable label for consumers so that they can make informed choices when choosing products, services and organisations that use water efficiently, reducing per capita water consumption and helping in the end goal of preserving such a precious resource.
TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda
Australia’s long dry summers and droughts can be brutal on lawns and even more so on your water use and bill.
TifTuf Bermuda Grass was developed by the world’s leading turf scientist with this challenge in mind. In order to receive the Smart Approved WaterMark, there is a significant process that is undertaken and a strict set of criteria the product needs to adhere to.
A technical expert panel independently assesses the applications of products and services undertaking the accreditation process.
The panel of seven members, including an independent chair who represents international expertise in the field, examine all aspects of the product application and the associated evidence of water efficiency.
After many years of extensive independent testing and research, TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda is the first and only turf grass to receive this for drought tolerance in Australia or anywhere in the world.
