Careful selection of your lawn variety is vital. It has to be correct. At Lilydale Instant Lawn, we grow 4 high-quality turf varieties. With our range, we have the right type of turf to suit all lawn and garden conditions in Victoria. So no matter what you need, we have a suitable turf variety.
When choosing your new lawn turf, you need to consider things like how much traffic it will get, sun coverage, drought tolerance, and maintenance level. But don’t worry; our turf recommendation tool makes it easy for you.
Measuring your lawn area is a straightforward process, and we have step-by-step instructions to make it as easy for you as possible.
Once you have your lawn dimensions, our turf calculator makes it easy to calculate the amount of turf you need in metres squared.
Our delivery drivers aim to make things as easy as possible on the day your instant lawn arrives. We have specialised forklifts so we can place your turf as close to the laying area as possible with the available access.
Just let us know where you need your turf, and we will do the rest to minimise the manual labour on the day. Or if it suits you better, you can collect your instant lawn from our farm.
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.
