Frequently Asked Questions

The easiest way to find out how much sunlight your lawn will get is to note what time sunlight starts hitting your lawn in the morning and what time it stops in the afternoon or evening. This will enable you to count the number of hours it receives direct sunlight throughout the day. And remember that you may have more shade in winter as the sun will be lower in the sky.

If you have areas of lawn that don't receive a lot of sunlight, many shady lawn solutions will work for your garden. The best way to find the right turf variety is to talk to your local nursery or turf farm. They will be able to advise you on the best shade tolerant turf varieties for your area.

At Lilydale Instant Lawn, we have a wide range of shady lawn solutions that will suit any garden. We have a team of experts who can advise you on the best turf variety for your garden. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Laying your turf isn’t a complicated task, and you don’t need any special training or equipment. But it is physically demanding, so if you have trouble lifting heavy objects or bending down, then it might be best to get help with laying your turf. You can also hire a gardener or landscaper to lay your turf for you. Professional installation by a specialist turf supplier will ensure great turf quality.

If you’re lucky enough to have multiple lawn grass varieties suitable for your area, which turf you choose really depends on your preferences. There is no one best method for how to choose turf. Is there a variety that you like the look of more? Do you lean towards a soft leaf buffalo grass over a zoysia grass? Or do you prefer a zoysia grass to kikuyu grass? Do you want a low-maintenance lawn that requires less frequent mowing?

It’s important to take the time to think about what you want from your lawn grasses. If you have any questions, you can also ask our friendly team for advice.

If you followed our measuring instructions and used a tape measure, then your measurements should be accurate.
