Who is Daleys Turf

Daleys Turf is a family owned and operated turf farm which commenced operations in 1992, since then we have expanded to meet the growing demand for quality lawn.

In the early days everything was done by hand, nowadays we have all the machinery to better serve their customers, even palletless deliveries.

Daleys has trialled others grass types over the years, but now, with all their experience, the most suitable lawn is ‘DNA Certified Sir Walter’.

Daleys Turf was the first on the Sunshine Coast to grow and sell a soft leaf buffalo. In the quest to find the best lawn, they tried several soft leaf buffalo varieties, until they found ‘Sir Walter’, the best all rounder. Daleys have been growing it for 18 years now and it has stood the test of time, which is the only true way to test a lawn.

About Daleys Turf

Daleys Turf has 9 employees – of which 4 are from the ‘Daleys family’ – and that makes a difference when it comes to producing the highest quality possible.

Daleys Turf’s service to their customers is unmatched; deliveries can be done the same day. They concentrate their business on the coast which gives them the ability to offer a great back up service to any one that owns Daleys Turf lawn.

Daleys looks at your turf as a life long investment that should be a source of enjoyment for years to come.

Daleys Turf and Sir Walter

Daleys Turf met ‘Sir Walter’ because they had a need for a soft leaf buffalo that could handle the conditions on the Sunshine Coast. The other buffalo that they were growing at the time were causing problems, so in their search for a quality product to grow they found Mr Brent Redman, or Mister Sir Walter. He had the answer, a very versatile turf grass that performs like no other grass: Sir Walter Premium Lawn Turf. Back then they only grew small amounts of buffalo, but now, 80% of their turf area comprises of ‘Sir Walter’.

Client Feedback

As everyone else has said. Expert advice. Terrific service. Highly recommended!
Sean O'Connor
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!

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.
