Frequently Asked Questions

Before you call us please refer to these useful hints:

Soil Preparation

Before removing old turf, you will need to spray the area with roundup or an equivalent at the rate recommended. Allow 10 – 14 days to complete effect. Remove turf before preparation of soil.

Levelling

Completely remove any debris that may be present such as grass roots, twigs, rocks, or weeds. Shape the area and level with straight board.

Laying

Turf should be laid immediately after delivery as it is perishable. Lay turf in a stretcherbond fashion as you would with bricklaying. Butt ends together tightly without overlapping. The grass should be level with surrounding surfaces.

Watering

Now that you have your new instant lawn installed, you really want to keep it looking good and in a healthy condition. It is recommended that the new lawn should receive at least 10 mm per day for 30 days. Ask us about some useful lawn supplies to protect your lawn.

General watering

You will know if your lawn needs watering because it will take on a blue/grey appearance and then brown patches may appear. Another indicator is it may feel crunchy and dry underfoot.

Fertilising

As a general rule, 20 – 30 grams of lawn fertiliser per square metre should be added during the growing season (September through to April). This should be applied every 6 – 8 weeks; however frequency depends on the soil type.

Mowing

Different varieties of lawn have different needs when it comes to mowing. Ideally Palmetto should be mowed at a height of 25/50 millimetres with a cylinder or rotary mower, raising heights in winter or for shaded areas.
