Turf Laying

Turf installation

There’s nothing better than having a luscious green lawn to complement your landscape design. At ScapeMaster, we know how important it is to choose the most suitable turf to match your climate and soil composition.

It’s important to prepare your lawn before laying turf, including ground and soil preparation, irrigation, drainage and compaction. You’ll need to get the foundations right, before laying the first blade of grass.

Our turfing services include everything you need to ensure your new turf grows lush and green for years to come. View our range of landscape design services to complete your garden look.

How to pick the right turf for your lawn

Choosing the correct type of lawn for your yard will depend on a few factors, including climate, location and how often you intend to maintain it. Some turf, like our soft-leaf buffalo, is easier to maintain than others. It’ll still need watering, mowing and the occasional fertiliser, but overall, it’s fairly easy to mow and maintain. More importantly, it’s soft enough for the kids’ (or adults’) game of footy in the backyard.

Our turf laying process

We start by coming to see your property and the areas you want your turf laid. During this initial consultation, we will do the following:

  • Check all the areas where turf installation is needed, including adjoining areas that may be affected (pools, brickwork, paving, drainage)
  • Check soil quality and composition to determine the best type of turf for your garden
  • View photos or examples of turf or turfed areas you think you’d like to have in your design, then assess if they are right for your yard in terms of price, ease of installation, availability and viability in your turf area
  • Take measurements of the area to ensure the proper amount of product is ordered
  • Look at any existing or new landscape drawings you may have for the yard to ensure continuity in look and design with your new turf
  • Discuss existing lawn areas or suggest new turf options that will suit your landscape needs. In some cases, only part of your lawn may need replacing
  • Discuss your family’s needs and what you plan to use the lawn for; families with young children may need a more durable turf
  • Write up a quote, including time and materials needed to complete the job, when we anticipate the start and end date, and any other items we deem necessary to do this job correctly.
