Commencing from Sunshine, delivering around from Monday to Saturday, fresh from our turf farm (yes WE grow the turf), we sell 5 great varieties of instant lawn (the real stuff not plastic!) at an affordable price.
Pre-order turf straight to your door or pick up from Sunshine.
If you have any questions – please contact us and we will endeavor to provide you, from the farm, honest straight-forward advice.
Our last delivery will be Friday 21st December, reopening Monday 14th January.
We wish everyone a safe and relaxing holiday break, with plenty of time to spend with family & friends.
We are currently booked out for our Melbourne deliveries for both Friday 16th and Saturday 17th.
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. You choose your day, and we can deliver. Saturday deliveries tend to book out by mid week.
If you have access to a ute or a trailer, you can also pick up your pre-ordered turf from Sunshine, Monday to Friday. (We do not have turf on display in Sunshine.)
All our orders over 30sqm are supplied with free fertiliser.
In summer, you need to lay the turf when it is fresh – on the day it is delivered. If turf is left on the pallet (unlaid) for a day or so, it will start to die (it starts to compost).
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 30 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.
Pick Up Location
Turf can also be collected 4 days a week (5 days in Summer) from Pickering Transport in Sunshine. Please note, this location is a collection point only, therefore turf cannot be viewed at this location and turf must be pre-ordered 2 day’s prior to collection.
Laying turf at this time of year
As we are experiencing some warmer days, you must lay your turf the day it is delivered. Within a couple of weeks we should have all our varieties available for purchase.
As we we lead up to Christmas, this is the perfect time of year to lay your new lawn. We recommend to top dress your newly laid turf. Top dressing is where 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.
Watering & Water Restrictions
Please as it continues to stay dry that you remember to give your water a good soaking at least weekly. A brief shower of rain will leave the concrete wet, but the turf will still be thirsty.
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.
