Frequently Asked Questions about Installing Instant Lawn

Here is some handy information if you choose to purchase turf and install it yourself.

Best soil to use underneath your instant lawn?

To get the best results and optimum growth, the soil we suggest you use is our Turf Loam. This soil is the ideal base for any new lawn or instant turf as it compacts well allowing your turf to establish successfully for your overall enjoyment for many years to come. This soil is also suitable for top dressing lowns.

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?

It is important that you 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. Click here for pictures.

Do I need to order lawn starter?

Prior to laying your turf, it is best to add some lawn starter or wetting agent to the soil. If you order more than 25m2, you will receive FREE Lawn Starter with your turf to help establish and encourage root growth.

(Application as per Garden beds, Vegetables, Flowering Annuals as it is being used as a starter, this just gives it that little kick start. It is not necessary to apply more heavily for the purpose of a lawn starter)

Do I need to fertilise my new instant lawn?

It is also advisable to fertilise your turf at the 6 week mark and then at the beginning of each season. 10kg Sir Walter Fertiliser – $50 (covers approx 500m2)

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

To allow your turf to be harvested, we prefer at least 2 days’ notice in advance for your order, and payment up front is required.

What do I do if I need less than 25m2?

If you need less than 25m2, that is ok, but the turf will need to picked up in a ute or trailer from The Green Centre, Stadium Drive, Keilor Park on a Saturday. Delivery charges apply. *Please be aware that you may have to load the turf on your own, as we may not be able to assist you with this on the day.
