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.

Hi, we have a garden bed next to the house of approximately 8 square metres that we would like removed and replaced with Buffalo turf. We have removed the plants. The job would require removal of garden bed soil and preparation and installation of turf as well as a section of stones to match what is beside the area. I had to select a date, but any time in the next month or so would be fine. I had to select a price - happy to discuss that, we are not sure at this stage hours involved, cost of turf, etc.

Fantastic job. Some very, very hard digging involved. Really appreciate the massive effort and quick time too. Lovely person, very friendly, a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. Would highly recommend. Very happy, thanks so much Michael.

Mount Sheridan QLD, Australia

24th Jan 2019

Experienced landscaper/s needed to remove existing grass which is dead (zygiois) and 1" of soil underneath. Wheelbarrow dirt through side gate into a trailer. We can't fit a small dingo through the side gate which is why it needs to be dug up by pick and shovel. Then spread over a 6 x 4 trailer load of crusher dust to level. A second trailer load may be necessary but won't know until dirt is removed. I'll hire a compactor and it needs to be compacted down and leveled. Artificial turf needs to be measured, cut and laid using pegs and adhesive tape. Total length of turf is 11 metres long and a Stanley knife can make the necessary adjustments.
