INSTALLING A NEW LAWN - KINGS BEACH

If you’ve laid turf or are able to install a new lawn in Kings Beach, Daleys Turf is here to help out with any questions you might have. Installing, establishing and maintaining a green and healthy lawn in Kings Beach can be a tricky affair. The proximity to the coast can ensure a geographical set of unique issues to deal with.

Do you have a dry dead lawn? Dry patched on the lawn? Or just a brown lawn? The following tips can aid you in your lawn recovery.

Watering

When the leaves of the lawn plants begin to yellow, brown or curl up the lawn is not receiving adequate water. Aim for 2.5cms of water across the entire lawn at any one time. Less frequent, but deeper watering will encourage a deeper and stronger root system. In a location like Kings Beach turf may benefit from a wetting agent, a product designed to hold moisture for longer.

Nutrients

A dry or brown lawn may be a sign that your lawn is struggling to exist on the nutrients in the soil. Conduct a pH soil test. This kit, available from lawn care suppliers, nurseries and hardware stores, determines the acidity or alternatively the alkalinity of the soil and therefore what is missing. Take your results along to your local lawn care supplier and they will be able to advise you on what your lawn is deficient in and how to solve the problem. This may mean fertilising or top dressing.

Infestation

Dry, brown patches on the lawns may be an indication of a pest, insect infestation such as lawn grubs. We suggest laying a piece of wet material such as a hessian bag on a section of lawn overnight – this will cause any lawn grubs to come to the surface for identification. If pests are in attendance they must be treated immediately with an appropriate insecticide to halt their movement and numbers. It’s important to use the correct product and one specifically suited to the pest and the variety of lawn in your backyard.

If you have not yet installed turf we would suggest laying Sir Walter turf at for the best results at Kings Beach. This variety of turf is designed to handle conditions such as those experienced close to the coast and is drought and shade tolerant.

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!

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.

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.
