Why choose turf?
Turf has the ability to transform your outdoor space and revitalise the look of your property. This might even help to add value to your home. Aesthetics aren’t the only reason why turf is a fantastic choice for landscaping projects. Turfing can play an important role in protecting the soil, preventing erosion and reducing water runoff. This allows more water to be absorbed by the soil.
Turf is also a safe option. It helps to regulate temperature because it’s significantly cooler than other surfaces. It can also help to reduce the spread of fires, limiting fire damage. Additionally, it can act as a deterrent for pests like insects and rodents, helping to protect your home from infestations. Turf also has the potential to reduce noise – when planted on a sloped surface it can act as a significant barrier to troublesome noise.

New turf does need fairly intensive watering, particularly during the first few days following its installation. Under the regulations governing Queensland’s water supply, owners of new turf are allowed to water it as required for the best care of the turf (ie: intensely) for the first seven days after it’s been laid.
After the first seven days, the usual restrictions around watering apply.
Provided there is a layer of soil that the turf can be laid onto, it will grow over most surfaces. It’s important to make sure that the sub-strait doesn’t contain anything hazardous and has a layer of topsoil to give the turf something to bed down into. The depth of topsoil needed can be as little as two inches, but we recommend three or four inches if possible, to maximise stability and enable the roots to go slightly deeper in search of water.
Yes! Because of the climate in Queensland, turf can be laid at any time in most locations. Laying turf during the cooler months is often preferable, as less water is needed for the turf to establish itself successfully.
Saline, coastal environments can be challenging for standard grass plants to thrive in. Very exposed locations, particularly those with thin topsoil, are also likely to be unsuitable. It’s also important for many turf varieties that they receive seven or eight hours or more of sunlight. If you’ve got a shadier spot, Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo grass may be suitable.
If you’ve got a challenging location in mind that you want to turf, get in touch and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation for a suitable turf variety.
Ideally, yes! Like any other plant, grass thrives best when it’s kept suitably irrigated and has the nutrients it needs for growth. That said, some varieties of grass used in turf require more care than others. If you want a low-effort turf, we recommend Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo grass. This turf is tolerant of drought, hardy and requires minimal attention to keep it looking good.
Laying turf isn’t a difficult job, provided the initial preparation has been completed correctly. The soil on which the turf is laid needs to be free of rocks and stones. Some people rotivate it to achieve this. It then needs to be fertilised and levelled, before being trodden down lightly and gently raked. The turf strips can then be laid gently over the soil, starting from an outside edge, and pressed into place. Once the lawn has been laid and the edges trimmed, it’s important to keep irrigation levels high for the first week or so, as well as keep traffic on the lawn to a minimum until it’s established.
