When buying lawn turf there are a lot more issues to consider than just the advertised price. Investigate a little further to find the true grass turf prices available.
Timing is everything
To ensure your new turf establishes easily and thrives over the long term, timing is everything. The time between when the turf is cut and rolled/packed and when it’s laid is extremely important. The longer that time frame is, the more chance the turf has to dry out. The shortest possible time between cutting at the turf farm and the installation process is advisable.
Note: When buying lawn turf look for yellowing leaves and dried root systems on the underside of the turf; these denote that the turf is dried out and less likely to easily establish.
Going the extra mile
Determine your choices regarding where your lawn turf comes from can ensure you get a great deal on the price of your new lawn. Using a local turf supplier will reduce the distance your lawn needs to travel to its new home and therefore reduce its overall cost and the likelihood of the turf drying out.
Note: Sunshine Coast turf can be sourced direct from the Daleys Turf farm.
When choosing lawn turf it pays to do your homework; measure the area to be turfed and allow a little extra to take into account difficult areas in your yard. It is also advisable to take note of the amount of turf that you are receiving for your money. A specialist turf supplier will usually quote per square metre but some cheaper options quote per square three-quarters of a metre.
Note: Read the fine print to ensure you’re getting exactly what you think you are.
Is delivery included?
Delivery fees can add to the cost of your lawn; so ask when ordering if delivery is included or is an extra cost so you don’t get a nasty surprise upon delivery. Also consider options such as being able to pick up your turf order directly from the turf farm.
Note: A local turf supplier, Daleys Turf, offers delivery to the Sunshine Coast for just $88.00
