Installing A Lawn In Autumn

Installing A Lawn In Autumn

Some plants can only grow in some seasons. Whereas turf is something that can be laid all year round. Unlike Summer and Winter, Autumn is situated in between those seasons and is a great time to plan your turfing projects.

Weather conditions

Weather
South East Queensland’s weather can be hot and harsh or cold and freezing. Autumn is the perfect time that has more tolerable temperatures compared to those other seasons. With less humidity it is a great time to get out and prepare your space.

The cooler weather makes the work easier physically and turf stays fresher longer. Allowing you to take your time laying.

Preparation of space and surface

Prep
One of the most important steps before getting your turf, is the preparation of your space. Spraying the surface to get rid of weeds is crucial before bringing in new soil. As new quality soil is a great way to reduce weeds entering into your new lawn. Make sure when you bring in new soil that you level and subgrade it. This will ensure that your turf will grow and establish evenly. When you have these steps accomplished it is then time to order your turf.

Laying it down

Turf slabs
With your site prepared and turf ordered. It is now the time to lay your chosen turf grass. Turf needs to be laid as soon as you get it. Then make sure to water it in, no later than 15 minutes into the laying process. Using a water roller will also be an important factor of getting your turf down. Rolling your turf in with a water roller will see that your lawn get its roots down properly into the soil. Roots otherwise will dry out and struggle to establish if not rolled in properly. Also since the weather is cooler in Autumn, there will be less of a rush to get turf down. Making laying an easier process.

Further lawn care tips

Water
Water, water, water! Yes, watering is the most important part of a new lawn. Making sure that you have a daily schedule for watering is critical. Also preparing for upcoming seasons watering scheduling and changes to the climate will be major to your lawn. The cooler weather in Autumn means you don’t need as much water when establishing your new lawn. However regular watering on a strict schedule is still required as the grass gets all its moisture from the leaf until the roots are established.

Overall yes, installation of a lawn is absolutely possible in Autumn. We hope these tips will be helpful for the installation of your lawn. For more great turf, tips keep an eye on our website and all our social media channels.

Hands Free Delivery

Turf harvesting has come a long way in our 45 years. It has gone from a very manual, rough and tumble process to the amazing automated process we use today.

The key to all of this is our Firefly harvesters. They allow for pallet loading straight from tractor to harvester. The turf is then harvested and automatically stacked on the pallet. The pallets are dropped on the fly and the forklift can then move and load the trucks.

Then with our on-truck forklifts we can then unload leaving the turf exactly where our customers need it. All without a single human hand touching the pallet or the turf.
