Are you still looking high and low for the ultimate Christmas gift? We have just the answer. Forget the same old, same old. A new lawn is the gift that will keep on giving and it’s not too late.
If your current lawn is not doing so well; infested with lawn pests, weeds or suffering from bare or dead patches perhaps it’s time to do something about it.
New turf will bring with it a large number of benefits:
- A great place to relax and enjoy being outside
- Lawn will help provide natural cooling for your home during summer
- A lawn will offer a natural fire break around your home
- Add value to the property
- And you’ll also be the envy of all your neighbours; what’s not to love.
Establishment times vary due to location and time of the year however most take around 2 weeks; so there is still time to have the ultimate Christmas ordered, delivered, installed and established before the jolly man in the red suit pays his annual visit.
After the turf is laid it will require a little TLC. It’s important that the new grass plants don’t dry out. To ensure this doesn’t happen you may need to water, just until the turf and the soil immediately underneath are moist, four times a day during the establishment process. Daleys recommends watering your new gift, early morning, mid-morning, late afternoon and early evening to get the turf the best start to life and to limit the evaporation that happens when watering during the heat of the day. With a little time around the gift wrapping, eating and celebrating and you’ll have a lush, green lawn in no time.
You can order turf direct from the turf farmer, have it delivered and lay it yourself (with a mate or two) or take the stress-free and less labour intensive option of having the Daleys Turf team deal with everything; measuring, soil preparation, excavation, levelling, delivery, installation and clean up. We will even dispose of the old lawn so you don’t need to worry about a thing; we’re just like Santa’s helpers really. We highly recommend Sir Walter soft leaf Buffalo as it’s perfect for the South East Queensland climate being shade tolerate, salt tolerate with a great colour and tolerance to pests, diseases and weeds; a definite to pop on your Christmas wish list.
