Weeds are a common problem in lawns all over the world. The trick is to eliminate them before they've had a chance to spread further. Weeds can seem to be never ending towards the end of winter. The best time to treat winter weeds is during the winter months. This way you will have more chance of removing them before they germinate. Use our guide to identify some of the common weeds throughout South Australian and Western Victoria.
Weed Pre-emergent: Oxafert Pre-emergent is a great way to kill weeds before they appear. This herbicide targets weed seeds beforer they take hold in the soil. Oxafert forms a barrier that effects the germination of new seedlings! Find out more.
Dandelion, Clover, Marshmallow, Chickweed, Cud Weed, Thistle, Bindi and Plantain are all common types of broadleaf weeds. These weeds can be tough and aggressive and will germinate through weak areas in your lawn. Broadleaf weeds can be treated with a broadleaf weed control. Lawn Solutions Australia All Purpose Weed Control can be used to treat broadleaf and can be purchased online. Remember to carefully read and follow the instructions.
There are many types of clover that appear in our lawns and you will often find buzzing bees or insects flying nearby. Clover can often be seen in moist damp soils and there are many chemical sprays on the market that can be used to control it. Chemical clover treatments can sometimes cause damage to your lawn so ensure you purchase a spray that is best suited to your lawn variety.
Many of us find Soursobs appearing in our lawns during the winter months. Soursobs have a bright yellow flower which appear above the foliage and can be tricky to get rid of. The best approach is to continue spraying them every 3-4 weeks with a selective broadleaf herbicide until the growth period finishes. We recommend to avoid mowing your lawns and let the Soursob reach its full flowering stage before spraying.

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.
Thanks very much for the Sir Walter DNA lawn and thanks for your great service. The whole idea to use Sir Walter was to highlight the tinted windows and sandstone on our new home. I believe I have achieved this. Let alone the easy maintenance going forward.
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.
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.
Thank you for the great RTF Fescue lawn we bought last week. It has made a huge difference to our house already.
