Measuring your turf area is generally fairly straight forward, however, it is important that you take care to be accurate and double check your measurements.
To establish how much turf you will need, measure the length and the width of the area you want to lay your new turf. Multiply the length and width figures together to obtain the area (Turf L x Turf W = Turf m²).
If you have any unusual shaped areas you can divide these areas up into more square or rectangular shapes then add each shape together. Take a look at this short lawn measurement video for help with unusual shaped measurements.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn harvest our turf in slabs . Each slab of turf is approx 0.5m². (2 x 0.5m² slabs = 1m²).
It is a good idea to order a few extra m² just to ensure you can complete your job.
If you need any assistance to measure your area we're happy to assist, just supply us with a drawing showing the shapes and measurements of your area. Call us or email us at your convenience.
In most circumstances your lawn should be a major consideration when planning and designing your dream garden.
Before making over your garden and lawn landscape we recommend you draw up a plan or sketch that highlights all the different areas.
Gardens can have many areas to consider. Ensure you have thought about all elements such as your lifestyle, sunlight areas, shade areas, soil quality, climate, space available, intended use, pets and children and any garden themes. Being thorough from the planning stages will help you get the best out of your lawn and outdoor areas.
Put your creative cap on and remember lawns can be used to your advantage in many creative ways from small courtyards and roof terraces to conventional lawns.
Clearly mark out all your garden landscape features including lawn areas, garden beds, sheds, decking, paving, driveways and pools. Use measuring tapes, string lines and marking paint to keep the areas as accurate as possible.
Your local garden suppliers and gardening magazines are great places to head to for innovative ideas when designing a garden landscape.
Enjoy your new garden landscape and enjoy your new lawn.

My backyard is looking fantastic and it's your lawn that is the showpiece!
Thank you to you (Andrew) and your workers for contributing to a successful race track upgrade. Your work is of very high standard and much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the races, where you can see the track upgrade in use.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn provided us with an grass option to complement our modern home. We chose Sir Walter Buffalo that has an intense green colour and its softness suits our children playing outside. It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any instant lawn option.
The best quality grass on the market - comes fresh, green & healthy and the customer service is excellent!
Just a little note of thanks for arranging the delivery and drop off of lawn. We are busy watering it regularly to keep it looking amazing. Your customer service has been awesome and something of which you should be proud.
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!
Karrawatta Viticulture and Wines would like to thank Sheridan and the team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn for expanding the lawn area around our office. The quality of service and the product delivery has been second to none. Thanks again Sunnyside!
We would like to thank you for the Sir Walter Buffalo lawn layed during our recent court upgrade. We can now safely accommodate the growing numbers of participants using the facility with increased opportunities to train and play netball day and night all year round.
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.
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.
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…
We are very happy with our RTF Tall Fescue Lawn supplied and laid by Sunnyside Instant Lawn. The advice from Andrew & Sheridan was very professional and we would certainly recommend them.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks Sunnyside Instant Lawn, our lawn has come up awesome. Great product, great service, great price, what more could you ask for.
