Installing A New Lawn

Install your new lawn immediately. Turf is a living product will be gradually degrading. We advise all turf should be laid within 12 hours of delivery.

  • Soil level should be at:
    • 45mm to allow for the thickness of the Sir Walter slab
    • 25mm to allow for the thickness of the Nullarbor Couch slab
    • 35mm to allow for the thickness of the Platinum Zoysia Star slab
    • 35mm to allow for the thickness of the Sir Grange slab
    • 25mm to allow for the thickness of the TifTuf slab
  • Ensure the soil is not hot before laying turf.
  • Apply a light fertiliser to your topsoil before laying. We recommend using Launcher. Launcher is a blend of slow release fertiliser and water crystals that hold water near the roots during establishment and afterwards for a long lasting, healthy lawn.
  • Begin laying the turf slabs along the longest straight line, such as a driveway or sidewalk.
  • Butt and push ends against each other tightly, without stretching. Lay the strips in each row in a brick like fashion. Using a sharp knife to trim corners, to avoid overlay.
  • After installing your new turf, roll the entire area to improve turf and promote soil contact.
  • Turf should be kept moist. Water within first 15 mins of laying. A soaker hose is the preferred method of watering as they keep the turf moist with the minimum amount of water and the least amount of flooding the sub soil.
  • Follow instructions and watering guide on the care sheet provided with your turf.
