Laying Sir Walter Turf in Sorrento

Posted on 13th June 2012 in Installations

This is a before and after post so you can see the massive difference new turf can make to a property. We levelled the ground, fixed up the retic and laid the turf.

 

 

 

 

 

Preparing The Ground for Turf

Posted on 13th April 2012 in Sir Walter Turf, Soil, Turf

You can lay turf on ‘dirt’ but we don’t recommend it.

Usually it is best to get a bobcat in and excavate the dirt and replace it with decent soil.

At least 20-4ml will give your turf a good start and it is also a lot easier to screed than dirt and rubble. If you’re on a really tight budget then you can skip this, but having seen the difference in lawns with good soil v dirt… I’d recommend you don’t.

Reticulation and Turf in Quinns Rocks

Last week we did a complete revamp of a front and back yard in Quinns Rocks.

Here are some images of the retic and turf going in. It was Sir Walter Buffalo.

Does Your Dog Dig Your Retic and Turf?

Then here’s an idea for you!

I laid this Sir Walter turf today and the clients asked me to lay a grid of chicken wire over the top of the lawn.

The wire is approx 80ml squares and the idea is that the grass grows up thru it and the dogs are unable to dig because they cant get any grip.

I mistakenly put it under the turf initially thinking it would be better unseen, but i guess with Sir Walter and the way it grows it will soon be enveloped in lawn.

So if you love your dogs and love your backyard, but dont know how to stop them digging then this could be the solution you are looking for.
