PREPARING AND INSTALLING NEW LAWN TURF

Installing new lawn turf is an exciting prospect – soon you will have a lush, green lawn to be enjoyed with friends and family, however some care needs to be taken to ensure that your new lawn has the best chance to thrive.

Preparation

It is essential that you take the time to prepare your backyard correctly for the laying of the new lawn turf. All of the old lawn and any weeds should be removed carefully, including any runners which may below the surface of the soil. You should then conduct a pH soil test to determine if your soil is lacking any of the nutrients essential for vitality and strong growth. Soil additives should now be added, if required, to adequately prepare the soil. You will also require 100mm of good soil underneath the new turf – if you don’t already have that in your yard then it will be necessary to have some brought in. More preparation tips and advice can be found here.

Installation

Laying turf can be completed either as a DIY project or by the professionals. Either way it is essential that the new lawn turf be kept moist at all times to ensure that the root system doesn’t dry out. Daleys Turf has lots of great tips and advice on how to lay new turf, including a laying new turf video to help you on your way.

Establishment

Once your new lawn turf is down you enter the establishment phase. During this time your new turf will require some TLC but this will be worthwhile – you will end up with a strong, healthy and thriving new lawn.

New turf will need to be kept moist during the establishment period which usually lasts around two weeks – during this time you may find that daily watering is necessary. Limit the amount of traffic on the new lawn, to allow the root system time to establish and the turf pieces to knit together. More establishment tips and advice from Daleys Turf, your Sunshine Coast turf supplier, can be found here.

Client Feedback

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.

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.

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!
