On Farm Pickup
Orders for turf can be placed today for pickup on farm tomorrow. Generally 50m2 of turf would weigh about 700kg.
We have an advantage over most turf farms with a sandy loam soil which weighs much less than others.
Our slabs can even be half the weight of others which make them easier to carry and to lay.
Deliveries are made within 24 hours of turf being cut. Although orders can be made a week or more in advance. We have trucks available with forklift or a skid-steer for unloading. If you need a narrow machine, 1.4m to access, then let us know and we will schedule that in.
We do have a keen professional laying crew in our most popular areas that we deliver to. Just ask if a crew is available in your area.

All About Turf
Turf can be laid all year round. Although it's hard to predict it is best to avoid excessive heat. Always make sure you do have a good source of water from your tank, tap or local delivery truck. Some grass like Queensland Blue couch is not available in most winters after a series of frosts as the shallow root system becomes too weak for cutting.
Site preparation can be the most important step to long lasting, water use efficient and pleasing to look at lawn. Remove weeds and rocks and level as well as possible making sure your site slopes for water runoff. The better and the deeper the soil the better the lawn resists stress. Please call for advice as this can depend on your current soil on site, irrigation and aspect.
A fully prepared site should be hand raked to make smooth enough for mowing. Levels should be sloped to ensure that water runs off or into storm drains. All wheel tracks and foot prints raked smooth.
If you would like to fertilise before laying just use a soft type like Dynamic Lifter® to avoid burning the roots of the turf. The turf when it is harvested is actively growing so that fertilizer is not absolutely necessary. It is better to fertilise after the turf is established. And water the fertiliser into the turf to avoid leaf burn.
