Best soil to use underneath your instant lawn?
We suggest Turf Loam sandy soil for optimum results. Creates an ideal base and compacts well allowing your turf to establish successfully / also suitable for top dressing lawns
How long until I can go on my new lawn?
We do suggest that there is no traffic on newly laid turf for approximately 6-8 weeks to achieve optimum results
Do I need to top dress with washed sand?
Remember to top dress Sir Walter Buffalo with Washed Sand, concentrating on the joins and edges, this ensures the gaps don’t dry out – approx ½ m3 to 100m2

Apply fertiliser 6 weeks after installation and then at the beginning of Spring, Summer and Autumn – 10kg Sir Walter Fertiliser (covers approx 500m2)

Unless there are special instructions the forklift driver will leave the turf on the nature strip and will not knock on the door
