Congratulations on your newly installed turf in beautiful Brisbane!

Whether you’ve just transformed your backyard into a lush oasis or revamped your commercial space

with a vibrant green carpet, the journey doesn’t end with installation.

To ensure your turf thrives and maintains its impeccable appearance,

it’s essential to know what to expect and how to care for it right after installation.


What to Expect

After the excitement of your new turf installation, it’s important to understand that the initial days are crucial for the turf’s establishment.

Here’s what you can expect during this period:

Root Establishment: The first couple of weeks are dedicated to allowing the turf’s roots to establish themselves in the soil beneath. During this time, the roots will grow and attach to the soil, creating a strong foundation for your turf’s future growth.

Color Variation: Don’t be surprised if you notice slight color variations or unevenness in the beginning. This is normal as the turf adapts to its new environment.

Watering Needs: Proper watering is paramount during this phase. Your turf will need to be kept consistently moist to aid in root development. Be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to issues like root rot.




Immediate Care Tips: How to Care for Your New Turf

1. Watering Schedule: For the first two weeks after installation, water your turf daily in the early morning or late afternoon. Aim to provide around 1 inch of water per week, factoring in rainfall. As the roots establish, gradually reduce the frequency to every 2-3 days, and then transition to the regular watering schedule based on your turf type.

2. Mowing: Avoid mowing your new turf until it has fully rooted, usually after about 2-3 weeks. When you do start mowing, make sure your lawnmower blades are sharp to prevent tearing. Never remove more than one-third of the grass height in a single mowing.

3. Foot Traffic: Limit foot traffic on your new turf during the establishment phase to prevent damaging the delicate roots. After the roots are well established, your turf will be more resilient.

4. Fertilisation: Avoid fertilizing your new turf immediately after installation. Wait until the roots have anchored in the soil, which usually takes a few weeks. Always follow recommended fertilization guidelines for your specific turf type.

5.  Weed Control: Keep an eye out for weeds that might try to invade your new turf. Hand-pull any visible weeds, as chemical treatments can interfere with the turf’s establishment.


 Long-Term Maintenance: Keeping Your Turf Vibrant

1. Regular Watering: Once your turf is established, maintain a consistent watering schedule based on your turf variety and weather conditions. Deep and infrequent watering promotes strong root growth.

2.  Mowing Height: Set your lawnmower to the appropriate height for your turf type. Regular mowing encourages denser growth and a healthier appearance.

3. Fertilisation Routine: Develop a fertilization schedule that suits your turf’s needs throughout the year. Spring and fall are typically the best times for fertilisation, but follow local recommendations.

4.  Aeration and Dethatching: Regular aeration and dethatching prevent compaction and allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots effectively.

5.  Pest and Disease Management: Keep an eye out for any signs of pests or diseases. Early detection and appropriate treatment can save your turf from serious damage.
