Installation Steps

NATURAL LAWN

 

01

If perennial weeds are a problem, spray with Roundup or Buster and then leave the area for about 3 weeks or remove the turf surface with a turf harvesting machine and dump the old grass.

02

Cultivate the lawn area thoroughly to 100mm, and roughly level. Add soil if necessary. If your soil is of poor quality, consult your Readylawn supplier for advice.

Cultivate the lawn area thoroughly to 100-150mm, and roughly level. Add soil if necessary. If your soil is of poor quality, consult your Readylawn supplier for advice.

03

Rake level and consolidate the area by heeling (not rolling) to desired levels and to a smooth the surface. Allow 12mm (1/2 inch) below paths etc. for your Readylawn.

04

Apply a good starter fertiliser (Readylawn’s pre-lay or Lawnlife Jump Start fertiliser is best). Rake in and moisten soil if dry. Roll out the Readylawn, butting the strips tightly together. In hot conditions, water the lawn as soon as it is laid. Trim the edges.

05

Water until Readylawn is wet through. Tamp or lightly roll whilst still moist. If the ground is too wet delay rolling until it firms up.

06

Keep well watered for the first three weeks until the Readylawn is established, then water normally. Don’t leave too long to mow.  Mow when the grass is twice as long as it was when installed, and mow back to its installation length. This may be as little as 7-10 days after installation in the summer.  Remove clippings.

Important!

It’s best to order your Readylawn for delivery after the soil is prepared for immediate installation. Try to avoid leaving Readylawn rolled up, as it will begin to deteriorate.
