Remove all old grass and weeds.
Use 1 to 3 applications a week apart of a Glyphosate Herbicide. e.g Roundup that will kill all vegetation right down into the roots preventing them to regrow.
Once vegetation has died remove it by scalping with a mower or scraping the surface with a bobcat.
Turf measuring is a simple process, all you need to do is calculate the area you’ll need to turf. Take your time – break the area up in to small areas for accuracy.
It is recommended to establish turf in a minimum of 100mm of good quality topsoil. Rotary hoeing the soil and incorporating organic material, i.e. chook manure pellets, is ideal.
If the site is hard and compacted, aerate and use gypsum to improve the soil. Rake the soil as flat as possible ready for turf.
1 cubic metre of topsoil will cover 10 m2 of area 100mm deep.
New lawns establish well if you use a starter fertilizer.
Our specially blended starter fertilizer is ideal as it contains water crystals that hold water at the root zone.
4kg bucket will cover 100 m2, cost $40
Important: Turf is a living product and requires good quality soil and lots of water to establish, install new turf immediately.
Important: In a heat wave water daily to prevent heat/water stress to the lawn.
For best results fertilize regularly with a good quality complete fertilizer, aim for every 2 to 3 months.
