• When preparing your area for instant lawn, you should make sure that the area has adequate drainage and that there are no weeds present.

  • ​To remove existing weeds, you should spray an appropriate herbicide at the manufacturer’s recommended rate.

  • Wait 2 weeks and apply again if necessary. Remove the old lawn with a rake and fork. Do not plant over your old lawn.

  • Test your soil. For acidic soils (pH below 6) add lime available from any good garden supplier. 

  • Dig and turn over the soil to a depth of 150-200 mm, mix some compost (1 bag for 5-7 m2 ) in the soil profile and rake level. 

  • If you are installing an automated irrigation system for your lawn, install it after soil preparation and test the coverage.

  • Lay your instant turf immediately upon delivery.
