Installation Tips

Initial Installation

  1. Remove all building waste & weeds
  2. Spread a free draining soil to a depth of 7-15cm (roots can penetrate much deeper) or loosen ground and mix in appropriate soil conditioners. Phone your supplier for more advice on this option. For sandy soils, simply mix in organic material and rotary hoe.
  3. Level the surface using a screening board, lawn leveler or similar device.
  4. Apply a low analysis fertilizer with an N: P: K of approximately 5:6:5 or lawn starter fertilizer to the surface and incorporate with a rake.
  5. In hot months, moisten the soil but do not make the soil too wet. Do not lay turf on hot, dry soil.
  6. Lay turf as soon as possible after delivery.
  7. On hot days, lay a section of turf and lightly water. Repeat until all turf is laid. On cool days, turf can be laid all at once. Roll and water thoroughly within one hour of laying turf.
  8. For best results it is recommended that once you have laid your Winter Green couch that you top dress it with white washed sand at approximately one quarter of a cubic metre per 100 square metres. Concentrating on the joins to help the edges from drying out. You may also want to roll your turf after top dressing to achieve maximum soil contact.
  9. Water thoroughly for 7-10 days or until turf is established. Take care that the water is saturating the soil beneath the turf. In colder months, the turf will take longer to establish. The turf should not dry out until roots are established.
  10. When the soil has firmed and the Winter Green has rooted down, usually 2-3 weeks after laying (longer during winter), mow lightly to tidy up the lawn
