(For Borders, most clients work on 30 to 40 plants per lineal metre)

If your border measures 10 lineal metres, and you decided on 30 plants per lineal metre, you would require:
10 metres x 30 plants = 300 plants = $163.00 including postage

If you decided on 40 plants per lineal metre you would require:
10 metres x 40 plants = 400 plants = $216.00 including postage


(For Pavers, most clients work on 30 to 40 plants per lineal metre, based on a 75 mm gap between the pavers)

With pavers you need to add up the total length of all the rows in between the pavers.
Similarly, if the total length of all the rows came to 30 metres and you decided on 30 plants per lineal metre, you would require:
30 metres x 30 plants = 900 plants = $483.00 including postage

If you decided on 40 plants per lineal metre you would require:
30 metres x 40 plants = 1200 plants = $644.00 including postage
(Based on 75mm width)

Mass Planting

(For Mass Planting in a Garden, most clients work on 300 to 550 plants per Square Metre)

If your garden is 1 metre wide by 2 metre long = 2 square metres = 600 plants = $322.00 including postage

If your garden is 3 metre wide by 2 metre long = 6 square metres = 1800 plants = $965.00 including postage.


Dwarf Mondo Grass, also known as Mini Mondo Grass and Dwarf Lilyturf is a species of Ophiopogon native to Japan and loved in Australia due to its Drought Resistance. It is a hardy plant with shiny dark green leaves that will tolerate very dry conditions, thrives in most soil types and is frost tolerant.

Dwarf Mondo Size

It is normally grown as an ornamental grass and makes an excellent ground cover. You will receive Dwarf Mondo Plants similar to the plants in the image at left. Mondo will flourish in full sun or shade; tolerate poor soils, over watering or over fertilizing. It multiplies rapidly to form a dense, dark green border. It also looks fabulous planted en-masse in your garden.

Mini Mondo Grass

If you are not a gardener then Dwarf Mondo is the plant for you - it needs virtually no maintenance and will multiply quickly to form a beautiful mondo grass border. Its speed of growth means it is the gift that keeps on giving.

It grows to approximately 75mm (3") tall and makes a very trendy Landscape Grass as it can be planted around pavers, concrete tiles and slabs or in rockeries to soften the sometimes harsh appearance of these structures.

Dwarf Mondo Grass Sydney

You will receive fully established, mature sized Dwarf Mondo Grass Plants, similar to those shown in the picture above.

They will be sent bare rooted, with a little soil, to keep postage costs down to a minimum. They will be ready to plant as soon as you receive them. Water your Dwarf Mondo each day for a week or two after you have planted them.

Dwarf Mini Mondo Clumps

Dwarf Mondo will thrive in a range of soils but to keep them looking their Dark Green / Shiny best, try to water them at least every three or four days during any really hot or dry periods.

Whether you call them Dwarf Mondo Grass, Mini Mondo Grass or even Dwarf Lilyturf, you can be sure that this plant will survive the toughest of climates and prove its value as Australia's perfect groundcover.

Please note: We prefer to post our Grasses on Mondays & Tuesdays, unless you request otherwise.

WA / TAS / NT and overseas....due to quarantine laws we will not be able to post these plants to you.
