Laying your new lawn in Summer


In summer, warm season turf varieties like buffalo, couch, kikuyu, and zoysia will actively be growing for a quicker establishment. This means your new lawn will be ready to use sooner than you may think!

Why lay a new lawn in summer?

The lawn will actively be growing, helping your lawn establish a deep root system fast.

Top tips for laying a lawn in summer

  • Install your turf as soon as it is delivered. Particularly in our warmer regions, turf will heat up if left on the pallet and the quality of the grass will be compromised. We take care to cut your turf in the cooler mornings and delivery fresh to minimise the impact hot weather will have on your new turf.
  • If installing a lawn on a larger area, irrigate sections as soon as the turf is laid and then continue to install the rest of the lawn.
  • Give the entire area a really good water after it is laid.
  • Once installed water the lawn enough so the roots of the grass stay damp and don’t dry out. Check the turf every few hours to see if it needs another water.
  • Once the lawn has started to root down into the soil profile you can start to reduce your watering’s.
