Retic and Turf Replacement in Butler

I have had a call each year for the last two years to come and replace the turf at this small backyard in Butler. A combination of young dogs and a shaded area means it has been tough for the lawn to survive. It starts with a dig out of the old turf. Only 12m so not too much hard work. You can see the patchy old lawn below. Then it’s time to screed and update the sprinklers with some mp rotators. The regular Toro nozzles were getting blown around in the wind and dirtying the pool fence. And from […]

Most Popular Turf Varieties

Everyone has their personal favourite. Some like the hardy but soft leaf type of buffalo – the Sir Walter in the picture above or Palmetto are the two most popular. These are beautiful lawns and if looked after will really increase the value of your home. Wintergreen is also a very nice lawn but with a finer leaf. The down side to wintergreen is its invasive nature, so you need to make sure your garden beds are protected as this lawn will get into them and if it is left unchecked will be very hard to get rid of. Velveteen […]

Laying Turf Well… Laying Turf Badly…

Yep – you can really stuff it up if you don’t know what you are doing! As with all jobs of this kind preparation is everything – after that its ‘green side up’… or so you’d think… But we have seen jobs where the landscaper obviously under-ordered on turf and just left a 100mm strip down the side of the yard. Or this one where rather than butting the edges up hard he just filled the gaps with soil. ¬† The turf will grow across, but its not what you want to see. A good lawn should be fit for […]

Lawn and Irrigation in Eglinton

So I quoted this job on Tuesday and as the client wanted to get it done asap I did it today instead of going surfing… The bobcat got there yesterday and dug out the sand and spread the soil. The retic was installed – two stations using precision nozzles as the water pressure was pretty average and one station wasn’t going to cut it. I didn’t even bother getting the trencher off the trailer for this one as the sand was soft and digging was easy. From there it was a case of screeding and laying the lawn. This is […]

Retic and Turf Installation in Eglinton

So this is where it begins… a blank canvas they call it… I quoted this job today for backyard reticulation, removal of sand and dirt and supply spread of lawn mix, followed by 63m of Sir Walter Buffalo. This yard isn’t in bad shape as the sand isn’t piled too high, but we will still need to remove quite a bit before spreading 40ml of lawn mix. Once I have finished it on Thursday I’ll post some pics of the end result
