Frequently Asked Questions

No, we do not offer yard pick up, you will need to pre-order your turf ASAP to book in your delivery as space on trucks is limited

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
