How To Lay Sir Walter Softleaf Buffalo Turf
If you have been considering laying some turf then we can certainly recommend Sir Walter softleaf buffalo as a brilliant product that looks great when it goes down and that will continue to look good if maintained correctly.
Below is a job we did yesterday in Yanchep where we installed reticulation and then laid 200sqm of Sir Walter.
It came up looking stunning and the client was very pleased with the result.
The key to getting it right is preparation.
You will need to bring in at least 40ml of good soil, and then finish the level 40ml below your paving to ensure the turf sits neat and tidy.
Some good organic fertiliser spread before laying and then a good soak will get the ground ready for the turf to be laid.
From there we lay the largest slabs around the perimeter and try to minimise the use of smaller pieces of turf as these dry up easier.
Once laid and cut in to the sprinklers and shape of the land we run the compactor over it to ensure the roots make good contact with the soil.
Another drink and the retic set for the watering exemption and you’re pretty much done…
