Roll-On Lawn Installation

Perth Lawn Turf Laying

One of the Property Care Guys main services is supplying and installing roll-on Grass varieties.

 

We know what’s important to have a great looking lawn installation so we focus on:

  • Preparation. Site works is what we are excellent at. We make sure the area is perfectly level before laying. We have seen many poorly done jobs which require sand afterwards to fix dips and rises which simply should not be there when the time comes to lay the rolls.
  • Providing a fresh product. It is crucial to lay the lawn soon after harvesting. Some companies leave it over the weekend which is not a good idea in Perth weather.
  • Choosing the highest quality, healthy grass. Our suppliers know what we expect and we refuse anything not up to standard.
  • Fertilising – We use the best special lawn mix to nourish any type of grass laid. A cheaper option is to lay it on the existing soil which still works because we get it so level and add our own fertiliser. It’s not quite as great but suits smaller budgets.
  • Reticulation System – You must have sprinklers which will cover the entire area. We install only the best PVC grids, Popups and Joins at the correct depth

One your roll-on lawn turf has been installed we set our reticulation systems to an establishing program – to water several times per day. You must advise the water corporation you are doing this to avoid a fine. After the lawn has grown in nicely a normal program can be set which is easy to do yourself by reading the controller manual. We may show you this beforehand, or even come out and reset this for you if need be at no charge.
