What you need to know about laying turf

When it comes to turf and establishing a great lawn, here’s a few handy tips to keep in mind.

The best time to lay turf: (this applies to all turf types)

  • Autumn
  • All of Winter, except for the two coldest weeks of July.
  • All of Spring through to November.
  • December can be an okay time, but not recommended.

Note: Mid December to January is a bit harder on turf – regardless of which variety you’re dealing with. It’s not necessarily because of temperature, it’s more about the grass getting burnt while trying to establish.

What to think about before laying turf

When researching what changes you want to make to your lawn, here’s a few things to keep in mind:

  • Check out the type of soil you have – this is important as not all grasses will grow if the soil doesn’t suit.
  • The size of the area to be covered and what the grass will be used for (kids playing, animals running around, etc).
  • Is the area you want to turf suitable for the turf type (ie. shaded, sunlight, water drainage etc.).
  • What are your budget constraints – how much you want to spend will depend on which grass you choose, top prestige turf or a more budget suitable grass.
  • How much maintenance are you prepared to undertake? Some grass types are low maintenance once they’re established.
  • Lastly, we’re here to discuss your options and offer advice where necessary.
