How Do I Know When My Lawn Will Be Delivered?

Once your booking date is confirmed, an SMS will be sent to you with a delivery time the day before your delivery is scheduled (sent after 3pm).

This includes both truck and forklift use throughout the delivery process.

Can I Pay Cash On Delivery?

For all instant lawn orders, payment up front is required - we accept VISA or Mastercard over the phone, or via online orders.

How Do I Install My New Instant Lawn?

If you’re looking to install your own instant turf, we want to ensure that you are left with a great result. That’s why with every instant lawn delivery from The Green Centre, you will also review installation instructions, a lawn care book, Certificate of Authenticity and LSA Warranty.

Find some of our top tips below to help you get started:

  1. Before laying out your instant lawn, first apply your lawn starter to the area. This will help establish the roots for your lawn faster and ensure it stays healthy.
  2. Roll out your instant lawn on the driveway, or a flat surface, then place the lawn side by side in your lawn area.
  3. It is important to position your lawn side on to each other without pushing each firmly against one another (important to leave a small gap in between) - this can otherwise disrupt the turf and root system.
  4. Once you have finished rolling out the turf for your area, you will then need to address the remaining edges - the easiest way to fill this space is to cut the lawn into the required strips using a serrated edge knife or pair of secateurs.
  5. After all your lawn has been laid out and you're happy with how it looks, it's time to water the lawn area.

Lawn Starter & Getting Your Lawn Established

With every instant lawn delivery, we will provide you with a free lawn starter. This will help establish and encourage root growth for your new lawn. However, it is important to note, in order to get the most out of your lawn using the fertiliser, regular watering and maintenance is required.

Best Soil To Use Underneath Your Instant Lawn?

We suggest Turf Loam sandy soil for optimum results. This helps create an ideal base and compacts well, allowing your turf to establish successfully and is also suitable for top dressing lawns.

Lawn Types & Recommendations

Unsure of which type of lawn to choose for your yard? Take a look at our variety of lawn types and learn more about which will suit your needs best:

Premium Eureka Kikuyu VG

This is a tough and durable grass type, making it great for high traffic areas. If you’ve got a dog that loves to dig, this is the perfect lawn for you.

RTF - Tall Fescue

This lawn variety is the perfect low maintenance and long lasting grass type. With self-repairing abilities, you won’t have to worry about dry patches in your lawn again!

Sir Walter Buffalo

This easy-to-care for lawn type is perfect for Australian weather. Being drought, weed and pest resistant, this lawn variety is not only sustainable, but also low maintenance.


This lawn variety is tough and durable, making it perfect for the Melbourne weather. Being able to withstand the hot and cold fronts, this lawn is built to last.

Post Installation And Care Instructions

Following the installation of your lawn, it is recommended that there is no traffic to the newly laid lawn for roughly 6-8 weeks (depending on your lawn type). This is so that the grass has time to establish itself and handle frequent traffic. 

Do I Need To Top Dress My Lawn With Washed Sand?

For Sir Walter Buffalo grass, you will need to top dress with washed sand, concentrating on the joints and edges. This is to ensure the gaps between the blades don’t dry out, following an approximate ½ m3 to 100m2 ratio.

Do I Need To Fertilise My New Instant Lawn?

We recommend applying fertiliser 6 weeks after the initial installation, and then at the beginning of Spring, Summer and Autumn. 10kg of Sir Walter Fertiliser will cover approximately 500m2.
