How to measure your area
Rectangle area calculator
For a rectangle - multiply the length x width.
Example: length 10m; width 23m
Answer: 10m x 23m = 230m²
Oval area calculator
For a oval - multiply the length x 0.80 then by width.
Example: length 26m; width 14m
Answer: 26m x 0.80 x 14m = 291.2m²
Circle area calculator
To calculate the turf required for a circle multiply diameter x 0.80 then by diameter again.
Example: diameter 14.5m
Answer: 14.5m x 0.80 = 11.6 11.6 x 14.5m = 168.2m²
Triangle area calculator
For a triangle multiply the length x width and divide by two.
Example: length 10m; width 23m
Answer: 10m x 23m = 230 ÷ 2 = 115m²
Complex shape area calculator
For a complex area first divide the total area into simple shapes and calculate these areas and add them together.
Example: Rectangle: length 10m; width 5m. Triangle base 5m; height 2m
Answer: 10m x 23m = 230m² PLUS 10m x 8m = 80 ÷ 2 = 40m² TOTAL: 437m²
How to prepare for your turf
1. Clear site of all weeds and existing lawn varieties
It is important no existing weeds or lawn is present, otherwise you risk it contaminating your new lawn.
Spray the area with Roundup (or equivalent) at least 2 weeks before you lay your turf.
2. Prepare soil
It is recommended to rotary hoe or dig the soil to a depth of 100mm, deeper if you can. This will allow a soft and accessible medium for the roots to establish.
Then level the area with a rake or shovel.
Before laying your turf apply a starter fertiliser or a layer of chicken manure pellets. Give the soil a light water to provide a moist base for your turf.
4. Lay your turf
Finally – lay your new lawn, or talk to us about laying it for you. It is critical to get water on your lawn straight away, especially during the hot months.
How to care
for your turf
Your new lawn is cut and delivered within 12 hours and should be laid immediately.
Before laying your new lawn have your soil base level and about 2-2.5cm below any mow strip.
Fertilise the soil with fertiliser at the recommended rate.
Laying your turf:
Lay one strip around the perimeter first, then lay across the slope (if applicable) in a brickwork fashion, cutting where necessary with a sharp spade or shears.
After laying your new lawn, it must be watered immediately and cannot be top dressed (especially in the hotter months).
Newly transplanted turf requires extra care (especially water) for the first few weeks.
Turf must be kept moist at all times until the roots have taken.
During daylight hours the leaf should not be allowed to dry out, pay special attention to edge areas near concrete or brick, these will suffer the most.
A soaker hose is the preferred method of watering as these keep the turf moist with the minimum amount of water and hence the least amount of flooding in the sub-soil area.
To test the soil moisture use a 100mm/4" probe, the ground should be moist to this level.
If the weather is hot/windy, up to 10 hours watering per day may be required. If turf appears to lose colour during the first month after laying, water has not been sufficient and should be immediately increased.
Once turf has taken root (7-10 days in summer, 10-14 days in winter), water can be increased to a level that will depend on the climatic conditions. As a guide, the lawn should receive 2-3 deep waterings in summer per week, or 1 per week in winter - until fully established (approx. 12months).
Once fully established, one deep watering per week is usually sufficient except in extreme conditions.
