Yes, farm pickup is available Monday afternoon – Friday. Please ensure you bring all necessary equipment to secure your load. We will provide all necessary measurements & weights for you to safely transport your turf.

Top dressing should only be required to correct any unevenness in ground preparation. If top dressing is required, it should only be done in late Spring or early Summer with a sandy loam. Ensure the tips of the leaves are still visible after top dressing and no more than 10mm of loam should be applied per dressing. Quite often, a low mowing combined with fertilising and deep watering in Spring will achieve the same results and is an easier and cheaper option than top dressing.

Turf must be kept moist at all times until the roots have established. In temperatures around 20°C, you will need to water 3-4 times per day for 10 minutes.  If hot and/or windy, more frequent watering will be required. The turf closest to concrete and edge areas may dry our quicker, these areas may need more water. If the turf appears to lose colour during the first month after laying, watering has not been sufficient and should be immediately increased.

Our knowledgeable sales team are more than happy to speak to you about your space & recommend a lawn that not only looks great – but will thrive in your environment. We’re available via email, or phone to chat about all your lawn questions.

For square or rectangular areas multiply two sides together ie: 18m x 7m = 126m². For irregular sites divide up into smaller squares or triangles, calculate each individual area then add them together.

Our comprehensive site preparation guide will you prepare your soil and your ground before you lay your lawn. Please visit our site preparation page We recommend putting down at least 200mm of a good quality soil base before the turf is installed. A sandy loam mix is suitable for most varieties.

Instant turf takes approx. 1 hour per 50m² (1 pallet) to lay pending individual abilities. 

All orders must be placed by 3pm the day prior to harvest to ensure delivery on your preferred date. All accounts must be paid in full before the delivery will be dispatched.

Instant turf must be layed on arrival. If you’re not able to lay the day your turf arrives, we recommend rescheduling to another day you’re able to lay.

Single axis trailer can carry up to 30m², you should not exceed this amount as trailer brakes are required by law. Tandem trailers with brakes can carry up to 80m².

You should prepare your soil 30mm under any paths, garden beds or boundaries. This will ensure your turf will sit flush once layed.

Sunnyside send all customers an ETA via text message by 8am the morning of your delivery to your nominated phone number. Our delivery partners will also call you ½ hour before they’ll be onsite, giving you a more accurate estimate. If you have any special delivery requests, let us know and we will pass these requests on.

Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo is our most shade tolerant lawn & is a great low- maintenance lawn for a shaded area.

You can lay instant turf year-round. Establishment may take longer in the cooler months when the soil is cooler. If installing in the warmer months, the turf will establish quicker due to the warm soil however will require more frequent watering.

The first mowing should not be done until the roots have established and the turf can no longer be lifted. The first mow should only be a light trim, and never take more than a third of the leaf off in any single mow.

Prior to laying, the soil should be fertilised with Sir Launcher Fertiliser and again six weeks after installing using a SW Fertiliser. Fertilise every eight weeks for the first twelve months. Once established, fertilise early spring, early summer and mid autumn. The autumn fertilising is essential for the lawn to withstand the winter conditions.

Prior to laying, soil should be fertilised with Sir Launcher Fertiliser which aids the establishment. Six weeks after installing, your lawn may be due for a fertilise using a NPKS blend Fertiliser – this can be found at your local garden/ lawn care store. Once established, fertilise early spring, early summer and mid-autumn. The autumn fertilising is essential for the lawn to withstand the winter conditions.

It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any instant lawn option.

    A house just isn't a home without lawn, right from my first enquiry with Sunnyside I can not fault their service. I was going to lay the turf myself but at late notice I engaged them to lay it as well. I am so impressed with my Kikuyu lawn and the way it has been installed, it's perfectly finished our new house. The only thing smiling more than us is our dog!

    I am so happy with my Sir Walter Buffalo, it is green, lush and beautiful and has added so much value to my house. I was more than satisfied with the customer service provided by Sheridan & Andrew. I was very impressed with the follow up phone call I received and felt Sunnyside Instant Lawn not only provided me with great turf but they provided me with a very personal, wonderful service.

    Margie Donnellan | Whyalla, SA

    The quality and condition of the Sir Walter DNA you delivered to Blair Athol was exceptional, best turf I have ever laid. Thank you so much.

    My client came home at lunchtime yesterday to check it out. She was so happy and excited, she couldn’t stop crying. It was the first time in her 45 year life that she had ever had lawn in her own home. Hard to imagine that, life without a lawn.

    Nick Kilvington | Director | Blair Athol

    We couldn’t be more happy with the service and the end result. The Turf Guy, (Jamie) was very accommodating in meeting the needs of our centre and scheduled a time to do the work on a Saturday, ensuring the safety of the children and the families. Lots of families have commented on how amazing the lawn looks…

    Rob & Trish Martlew | Bordertown

    Delivery was great! The driver called before hand and was very careful with machinery on the driveway. Turf was in amazing condition when it arrived and the size of the slabs made it super easy to install. 

    Shane | Colonel Light Gardens

    Sunnyside Instant Lawn recently supplied and line planted approximately 15,000 square metres of turf at the Bordertown Racing Club. During this project, I found Andrew and his team to be very proficient. All work was carried out on time, offering good advice regarding the proper care required to get the grass up and going, they also followed up the progress of the turf after it was planted.

    Sonya Lodewyk | Bordertown, SA

    I love my new lawns! I was so impressed with the team's obvious knowledge and thorough manner. They advised the most suited turf type for this area's soil and climate. Their prices were very competitive and they had my windswept wasteland looking verdant and established in the space of a day! The team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn were, at all times, helpful, timely and professional.
