Installing Instant Turf
Frequently Asked Questions about Installing Instant Lawn
What type of turf should I install?
Can I pick up turf directly from you?
No – you will need to call to pre-order your turf so that it can be freshly harvested at our turf farm / payment up front is required
What is the delivery charge for Melbourne Metro?
Most Melbourne Suburbs incur a $140 delivery fee (turf comes from the country)
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

No – you will receive FREE Lawn Starter with your turf to help establish and encourage root growth

Apply fertiliser 6 weeks after installation and then at the beginning of Spring, Summer and Autumn – 10kg Sir Walter Fertiliser (covers approx 500m2)
Where does the driver put my turf?
Unless there are special instructions the forklift driver will leave the turf on the nature strip and will not knock on the door
