PREPARATION

 

A great lawn starts with the prep work. By preparing your site correctly you will ensure the best start for your new lawn. Prior to turf installation, we prepare the designated area by removing all weed matter, including roots either by hand or with a spray herbicide and remove all debris from the area to ensure a level surface.

CULTIVATION


If soil is heavily compacted or in poor condition it may be necessary to cultivate the area with a rotary hoe. If the area is comprised of clay soil we may recommend applying gypsum at this stage of the process to ensure a more suitable soil composition for the grass to take root.

soil

 

We recommend laying a sandy loam and cow manure topsoil mix at a depth of 50-70mm spread evenly across the area, before we roll the soil to create a firm, uniform base.

WETTING AGENT & FERTILISER

Applying a wetting agent & lawn fertiliser evenly over the top of the soil will give your turf the best chance to get established.

 

TURF INSTALLATION
 

We take great care to correctly lay each roll of turf to ensure a seamless finish, cutting the turf as necessary to meet  cleanly with garden edges, paths and driveways.

AFTERCARE
 

It will take two to three weeks for your lawn to ‘knit’. That is, it will take this time for your roots to establish and bind to the soil beneath. During this time, it is important keep your lawn well watered. We will provide you with advice on watering frequency and recommend an appropriate lawn care strategy so your new lawn will thrive!
