A soil test is recommended prior to commencing all works. It is best to take several small samples taken at a depth from 0-150mm (avoid taking sam- ples near concrete as this can lead to inaccurate results). Fill a small margarine container and take to Landmark for testing.
Weed control is very important in the preparation process because persistent weeds such as couch can return if these are not chemically sprayed. Products such as “Round Up” are extremely safe and very effective at controlling the above types of weeds. Always follow the directions on the pack.
At this point the soil can be amended with organics such as “Dynamic Lifter”, Topsoils can be incorpo- rated to assist in improving drainage and the instal- lation of drainage / irrigation can be completed. The soil, once tilled, should be of a fine tilth but not pulverised to the state of powder.

Start laying your turf at a straight line such as a footpath or driveway. Stagger the joins in each new row, like a row of bricks. Make sure all joins are butted tightly together, without overlapping or leaving spaces between strips of turf.
Use a sharp knife to shape turf around trees, flower beds or along curved borders. Pressing down after turf is laid will ensure good ground contact and remove air pockets.
Watering depths should be checked immediately after the first heavy watering to make sure that it reaches a depth of 15cm.
