If you are lucky even to call the Sunshine Coast home and are looking at installing lawn turf then we have put together a checklist to help you on your way.

Local Turf Supplies are Best

Along the same lines as when you purchase fruit and vegetables, with turf – fresh is best. When installing turf on the Sunshine Coast you should buy from a local turf supplier. Not only will this ensure that the lawn turf you buy is exactly suited to the local weather conditions, but you will get turf which is fresher. To give your new lawn the best chance at establishing and building a strong root system, the ideal is to get the grass laid as close as possible to the time it was cut at the turf farm. How do you do this? Find a local turf supplier that is also a turf farm, like Daleys Turf. This way the turf can be cut and rolled or palleted right before the time you either pick it up or have it delivered. Reducing the time between cutting and installation as well as transportation time will ensure that the roots of your new lawn plants will not dry out.

Cost of Turf

Depending on the size of your backyard, installing a new turf can be a fairly expensive exercise so it’s important to make the right decision.

As a guide, Sir Walter turf prices set around $12.50 per square metre of turf but costs will vary depending on your location, whether you buy direct or through a reseller, order amount. Other varieties of lawn will also come at varying costs.

The cost of the turf alone is just one aspect to consider – you also need to include extras as applicable such as trailer hire or delivery costs, soil additives, roller hire, installation costs, fertiliser and water. Laying a new turf can be a DIY job, as long as you have a few able bodies to help with the laying, rolling and watering but if that’s not your thing then installation services can be employed.

Daleys Turf are a local turf supplier that grows, sells and installs turf on the Sunshine Coast, as well as the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Ipswich. Turf farm pick up and free delivery is available on Sunshine Coast orders. Conditions apply so please see our website home page for further information.

Client Feedback

As everyone else has said. Expert advice. Terrific service. Highly recommended!
Sean O'Connor
Our excellent experience with Daleys Turf started when Harley Schenk arrived at our home to assess our requirements for a new front lawn. His expertise coupled with his friendly manner and detailed explanation created an immediate confidence that assurred us we had chosen the best company for our needs. Harley arrived on schedule, was well presented and wasted no time in preparing the quote. On the day of installation again he arrived on time with his colleague Patrick and together they carried out the task. They were painstaking in their efforts in preparing the site and laying the new turf. I have witnessed many lawns being laid in our suburb and I can honestly state that my lawn stands out from the rest, due to the quality of the product and the meticulous standard of Harley's workmanship. If you think your lawn is in need of replacement do not hesitate to engage Harley at Daleys Turf, you will not be disappointed.

I couldn't be happier with my experience with Daley's Turf! Not only is the product first class, but all of my interactions with the staff were very positive and helpful. I loved the energy of everyone I spoke to and my new turf looks amazing! Well worth the drive up from Ipswich. Thanks again guys!
Chris Smallwood
We have no hesitation in recommending Daley's Turf to you. They have delivered a first rate product in a professional manner. There was great communication with the company. The turf was ordered, an onsite inspection and discussion of alternatives and in no time we have a beautiful lawn. Special thanks to Harley for making it happen.
Peter Hamlyn
Terry and Harley worked absolute wonders! So happy with our new lawn... from start to finish they were really easy to deal with and offered great advice! As soon as it was laid it looked like it had been there forever and it took to the soil beautifully! Terry was kind enough to give me his sprinkler and tap timer when he noticed ours had been broken - above and beyond! Pictures just under 4 weeks after installation - front before mow, inside fence after it's first mow! These are unedited... it's so green!! Thank you Daleys Turf!
