Melbourne delivery details
We still have deliveries available for this Saturday 7th December for the west and north of Melbourne.
We are currently delivering turf Monday to Saturday around metro Melbourne, covering the suburbs within 30km of the CBD, including of Werribee, Bacchus Marsh, Melton & Sunbury.
If you have access to a ute or a trailer, you can also pick up your turf from Sunshine Monday to Friday. (We do not have turf on display in Sunshine.)
All our orders over 25sqm are supplied with free fertiliser.
Place your order by 12noon 2 days before your preferred delivery day. However, Friday & Saturday tend to book out early in the week so we will need several days notice. You need to plan to lay the turf the day it is delivered.
Yes we have plenty of Tall Fescue in stock
Although we prefer to have our Melbourne deliveries completed in the morning some deliveries will not be until the afternoon. We are unable to provide you with your preferred time as we are unable to satisfy everyone, although it would be nice….
Consequently, our minimum delivery is 15 square metres.
We send you a text message in the afternoon prior to your delivery with the expected delivery time.
Currently we do not have turf on display in Melbourne.
Christmas trading hours
Our last delivery around Melbourne will be Monday 23rd December. We will then be closed for a week, with our first delivery being Friday 3rd January 2014.
Laying turf at this time of year
Finally we are experiencing some warmer weather! This means that we are at the beginning of the perfect time to lay grass.
As the weather is not consistently warm, so the establishment period for our warm season grasses – soft leaf buffalos, kikuyu and couch will still be 6 to 8 weeks. Therefore you will need to water the turf daily for the next 6 to 8 weeks. The Tall Fescue will establish in the usual 2 to 3 weeks.
Plan to lay the turf the day the turf is delivered to ensure maximum freshness. We highly recommends top dressing the turf. This is where after you have laid your turf, you spread a thick layer of river washed sand or a top soil (sandy loam) along the joins of the turf and anywhere you have cut the turf to fit.
Melbourne residences are now under Permanent Water Use Rules. You can now water with a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle at any time & watering systems can be used between 6pm and 10am any day.
