DIY Tips

Planting your new lawn

Planting your new lawn:

  1. Remove all existing grass and weeds
  2. Loosen up the ground to roughly 10cm
  3. Apply a 2cm layer of good quality compost or topsoil to replace the healthy organisms that have been disturbed by loosening the soil
  4. Rake the ground level
  5. Roll open the instant lawn and pack it closely together, to avoid gaps
  6. Use either a roller or a stomper to make connection between the lawn and the ground below. This is not about compacting the ground, but rather to ensure there are no air pockets. You can use your feet to stomp it or even the back of a spade if you do not have a roller.
  7. Water! Give the grass a good soaking
  8. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done and read the maintenance guidelines for what to do next!

Maintenance tips – overview

  1. Water your lawn daily, for at least 10 days. Give it a good enough soaking to wet the ground underneath the sod.
  2. Stay off the lawn as much as possible until it has established (if you pull at the blades
    of grass they should pull back, meaning it has rooted)
  3. Once the lawn has established you can begin your weekly mowing. Please mow the
    grass high – using a lawn mower, set the blades on the highest setting.
  4. Top dress within 3 months to help level any uneven areas
  5. Enjoy your beautiful garden!
