Turf Installation 

Instant turf installation Melbourne 

Lush, green grass, there's no better feeling on the feet. Greenfleet Gardens specialise in Instant Turf installations to all areas of South East Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula. Our instant turf installation service will drastrically transform your house and garden and add value to your biggest assest. Generally, most jobs will be completed within 2 - 3 days from start to finish. 

We do all the hard work, removing the pre existing turf, weeds and top layer of soil before the turf installation takes place. We also then add a layer of premium turf soil, lawn starter fertliser, levelling and rolling prior to the new instant lawn installation. Preparation is the key for a healthy new lawn. 

Choosing your piece of green...

Before we start the dirty work, our professional turf specialist will discuss and make a suitable turf recommendation of choice. An onsite analysis is always recommended to factor in the following considerations:

Does the new lawn need irrigation?
Various lawn types rely on watering year round, which includes the Tall fescue lawn. Your favourable turf selection will be the basis of whether or not irrigation is required. 

Shaded or sunny Instant Turf position?
We have a number of turf varieties that are well suited for all positions of the property. One of the most important factors to consider before investing in a garden lawn installation Melbourne. 

What are your pre existing soil conditions?
We install our instant turf on a sandy loam base with a 5% compost. This allows the grass to thrive with nutrient filled and moisture holding soil, with a well draining sub base.  

Once a lawn has been selected, we will discuss further whether drainage, soil structure enhancing and lawn irrigation will be required. The result... a lawn that not only looks good now, but for years to come.

Removing the old

Sod removal and soil removal can be done in various ways, all depending on the size, location and how much should be removed, in preparation for the new instant lawn installation. Often we alternate between the two popular landscaping machines, using our commercial built turf cutter and cultivator.

On the larger jobs, with a excavation depth being more excessive, a small excavator will be used to remove your old lawn sod and soil.


Installing the new

Installing a top layer of soil prior to the turf installation, we supply and install a soil mix enriched with organic matter, cultivated into the existing base, prior to the final level of the topsoil. Once the landscape is prepared using the he best quality soils, a synthetic fertilizer may be applied if required (the need is minimised with a good blend of soil).

The new turf is rolled in a brickwork pattern, tightly pressed and aligned throughout the hole roll out.  

Synthetic turf may be recommended in a space with low light or high traffic where normal turf will not survive or where maintenance is not practical.


Aftercare solutions

Once the new lawn installation has been completed, we will advise and share our knowledge on turf care. Furthermore, offering complete maintenance and fertilising plan can be provided by Greenfleet Gardens to have your new turf looking its best all year round.
