Top Turf Laying related questions

Contrary to popular belief, you can lay turf any time of the year. Whether it's winter, spring, summer, or autumn, laying out turf is perfectly fine as long as you know how to maintain and take care of it properly. Generally, it's best to lay turf during mild weather conditions where it's warm enough for root growth but cool enough so that the turf doesn't dry out before the roots have fully established.
Turf laying is a pretty straightforward process, but how long it takes to complete the work depends on how big or small your lawn is. For smaller areas, a turf laying procedure can take a few short hours while turf laying for larger yards can take a half's day work. If you want to know how long your service will take, you can ask your Tasker, and they can readily give you an estimate.
Before laying your turf, it's best to have your soil fertilised with a quality fertiliser. After the turf laying service is complete, you can fertilise again after roughly six weeks. Make sure to fertilise every two months during the first year to encourage growth and keep your lawn healthy. Once your turf has been fully established, you can fertilise during the beginning of each season to prepare it for varying weather conditions.
You can only mow your lawn when your turf is already well-rooted and can no longer be moved. It usually occurs about three weeks after the turf laying job. To know if your turf is ready for mowing, you can lightly tug on the grass. If you can raise the turf, you need to wait a few more days. If, however, there are some grass trimmings, then that means you can already bring out your mower.
Yes, they can! We have plenty of experienced gardeners who can help you with all your garden-related tasks so your outdoor space can always look its best. From planting seedlings and watering plants to mulching and even weed removal, you can leave all your gardening needs to our reliable Taskers. You can even book a more specialised service such as grass cutting in case your garden is looking a little worse for wear.
You can outsource all types of lawn-related services through Airtasker. After laying out your turf, you can hire a Tasker for a lawn care service to ensure your turf is growing well and your entire lawn is kept healthy and thriving. We also have skilled landscapers in case you're looking to refurbish or redesign your yard with a new gazebo, pond, walkway, or other lawn and garden structures.

What do turf laying services include?

Are you looking for help to lay a new lawn for your home? Our turf laying services include all aspects of turfing such as removal of old grass, laying of new turf, and giving advice on immediate and long-term maintenance of your new lawn. It doesn't matter whether you're planning on laying artificial turf during winter or summer. 


Whatever the season, our Taskers can readily work with you for all your garden turf laying needs. For more information about our turf services, here are more details:


Winter turf laying

It's a common misconception that laying turf during winter is a big no-no. On the contrary, there are many benefits to turf laying during this colder season of the year. For one, your turf has enough time to settle and grow roots before the arrival of springtime. Also, laying grass turf during winter means you won't need to water it as often and thus makes it easier to maintain.


Your winter turf fitting service starts with a Tasker measuring your lawn area and preparing the ground for new turf. They level your soil using a rake, and carefully remove any weeds, stones, roots, and other debris. Your Tasker then starts to layout each turf roll ensuring each end is laid out as flat as possible. The last step involves checking if the entire lawn is shaped together firmly with no unsightly gaps between the turf.


Summer turf laying

Summer is that time of the year where people spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying their home garden or lawn. Even with warmer weather conditions, you can still lay turf during summer as long as you know the basics of proper turf maintenance. Since turf rolled up during summertime can quickly lose its quality, your Tasker immediately gets to work by preparing the ground for turfing using a specialised pre-turfing fertiliser.


They quickly layout and water your turf to keep the soil from drying out. Your Tasker also uses laying boards to help avoid walking on wet soil and damaging it before installation. Once the job is complete, your Tasker can give out some reminders, including constant watering every day for the next two weeks.


AstroTurf installation

If you prefer to install specific brands of artificial grass such as AstroTurf, you can also get help from our Taskers for artificial grass installation. Similar to turf laying, the first step involves measuring your lawn area and then removing the existing surface. If you own a small lawn, this task can be completed by hand. For larger spaces, it's best to use a turf cutter.


Your Tasker covers the topsoil with a sand or stone base before they compact it using a vibrating roller or plate. Then, they carefully roll out your artificial grass in the direction of your house for a more natural look. Finally, your Tasker trims away any excess grass and brushes your entire lawn to complete your AstroTurf installation.

Artificial Turf Job needs Finishing

$20

Truganina VIC, Australia

30th Jul 2022

Hi Taskers, Please place your best offer to finish off my garden bed and Artificial Turf. Excavation done, holes for H posts already dug out. Work that needs to be completed includes: - H posts to be concreted into the already dug out holes and concrete sleepers installed. - Crushed rock to be laid and compacted - Crushed Dust to be laid and compacted - Artificial Turf laid. - 10 small young pencil pine trees (already have them) planted into new garden bed. Help source and get supplies delivered. Size of Artificial Turf area is approximately 13.22m X 2m I apologise in advance for being frank but I think it's important to cut to the chase. Hence that's why I also happy to hear out your terms and conditions too. I have full respect for all taskers (unless they prove to me that they do not deserve it) and not saying everyone is like this but because of my past bad experience with the previous landscaper (not mention any names because I try to be respectable) who tried to pull everything I mentioned below. I'd like to lay out my terms. I am an experienced tradie and a Tasker myself (with High 5 Stars Positive Rating and Completion rates) so I know how it works what professionalism means please kindly have some mutual respect for one another not trying to treat me like a fool unlike the previous guy. Here are my terms: - If you cannot turn up to finish the task in a timely manner (no longer than 4weeks from accepting the task please; that's pretty fair in current climate) please do not place an offer. It is unfair on "us" clients if "you" try to throw out more offers than you can handle. It will work against your ratings and completion rates. I'm also flexible with starting dates and times. - You voluntarily placing an offer to do the work is NOT bending over backwards doing me a favour. It's a mutually agreed transaction on a mutually agreed price by you making the offer from your end and me accepting the offer from mine. Just like any other business transaction. I'm your client not someone who owes you anything. Nice words without work being done is NOT bending over backwards. Results speaks for themselves. - I have a bad back and cannot do any physical work. I'm not paying you to do the work for you. It's why I'm listing this ad and paying the money in the first place. So please don't atrempt a dodgy trying to make me do the work for you. - The offer you placed is inclusive of all your labour and any admin work you need to do (materials I'm happy to pay for with produced receipts) to achieve the final desired outcome to standard as mentioned so please don't do a dodgy and try changing the price unless it is something absolutely necessary and fair that I'd have to agree to. What you think you're worth each day is irrelevant, as it's the market that determines how much you're worth and is inclusive within then AirTasker Task so please don't tell me you're worth $xx/day or whatever. - Be able to handle and coordinate the work yourself and don't get me to do all that for you it's what your experience is hired for.

Proper Superstar no bulldust professional! Highly recommended for all your landscaping tasks! He showed up as he said he would and completed the task like he said he would! Went above and beyond and very ethical in his work making sure that everything is cleaned up before leaving! Couldn't recommend anyone else now that we have found Justin!

Newport QLD, Australia

1st Aug 2022

Wanting to lay Sir Grange Zoysia at our house in Newport. Currently there is Empire Zoysia on the ground which needs to be dug up prior to laying the new turf. I would suggest an excavator is used for this however, open to your suggestions. We were interstate when the lawn was installed and unfortunately the wrong turf was ordered without us knowing until it was too late. It’s a very small area however, hoping to fix this as soon as possible. We have planted Zoysia ‘No Mow’ out the front of the house so hoping to match our lawn to this fine blade grass. From my research, Sir Grange Zoysia is the finest blade lawn grass and fluffiest however, let me know if you have any other suggestions. The area for the Sir Grange Zoysia to be laid is 2.2m x 5m. Please let me know if any further details are required. - Due date: Before Tuesday, 9 August 2022
