FAQ

1. How is turf sold ?

Turf is sold on a per sqm basis. We ‘ sell individual pieces of turf, it is much easier for both customer and Coastal Turf to work out the required amount of turf.

2. How is your turf delivered ?

Coastal Turf cuts all of its turf onto pallets. These pallets of turf are then loaded into an all weather tautliner truck and taken to your house. It is then mechanically unloaded with one of our forklifts. We will place the pallet as close as possible to make it easier for you (included in the price of delivery).

10. How can we pay for the Turf ?

Coastal Turf makes it as easy as possible for our customers to pay for their turf. We now offer Eftpos facilities if you have mobile reception at your place, credit card over the phone, and cash or cheque on delivery.

11. How quickly does the turf need to be laid once it is delivered ?

It is best to ensure all of the turf is installed within 12hrs of delivery. If there is any turf that cannot be laid within that time period it is best to dribble water through the pallet of turf (this assists in cooling the turf down).

12. Do we have to roll our new turf ?

You don’t HAVE to, but it is strongly recommended. Rolling your new turf ensures that the turf comes into full contact with the soil (meaning it is less likely to dry out) and makes sure that the entire area is flat and uniform.

13. Should we put a fertilzer underneath the Turf ?

YES. use an ORGANIC FERTILIZER (sucha s Dynamic Lifter). A good rule of thumb is to put Organic Fertilizer underneath the turf and Chemical Fertilizer on top of the turf. The reason for this is the amount of nitrogen found in each type of Fertilizer. Organic Fertilizer has approx 4 % compared to Chemical Fertilizer that has approx 20 %.
