Our range of instant lawn requires minimal maintenance to keep it looking vibrant and healthy. We generally recommend watering 1-2 times per day for 4-6 weeks to help establish and develop its root system. Read our guide on how to care for your instant lawn for more information. To help your lawn get established and stay healthy throughout the year, we recommend using our Sir Walter Fertiliser.

The terms "Instant Turf" and "Instant Lawn" are often used interchangeably. Both refer to grass that has been professionally grown and cut into rolls that can be easily laid out to create a new lawn quickly.

The Sir Walter Buffalo grass is the number one choice of instant lawn. The lawn itself is resilient and hardwearing and does well with both kids and dogs. Watch our video on Sir Walter Buffalo Turf to learn more about how easy it is to install and maintain this lush, thick grass.

Simply prepare your soil by clearing any weeds or debris and lay the instant lawn delivered right at your doorstep. Once delivered simply lay the instant lawn on top of your soil and see the magic happen. In about 6 - 8 weeks the roots will get established, which you can check by simply pulling it off the ground. If you can’t pull it up, then it means that the root system has taken and it is established. Read our guide on instant lawn preparation and installation to help get your started.

While it might seem like a time-saving step, we advise against laying new instant lawn over an existing lawn. The reason is that the new turf needs direct contact with the soil to establish a strong root system and absorb necessary nutrients. If placed over existing grass, the new turf's roots may struggle to penetrate through, leading to a less healthy lawn. 

Additionally, the existing grass, deprived of sunlight and air, would likely wither and die. For the healthiest and most vibrant lawn, we recommend removing the old grass before laying the new instant lawn.
