Wet and cold, dry or hot, our members are out there growing and harvesting quality turf for community. It’s always busy on farm. 
Winter is a great time to instal new turf. It takes a bit longer to establish, but with winter rains and cooler weather, comes less irrigation requirement to establish your new lawn or turfed area. (Your Turf grower will guide you as to the irrigation requirements required to suit the weather.)
Even if it’s wet, ensure a couple of imperative measures are taken when installing turf. Get some Aquaforce and Biagra down on the area before laying your turf, to wet up the soil. Even in winter our sand can be very water repellent! Next make sure that you amend your sandy soils particularly with a red sand (70%), and Organics (30%). Get a bit of granulated or liquid carbon out too. And a pelletised chicken manure. (Turf start pelletised chicken manure can be purchased directly from the turf farm and can be delivered with your turf). 
Winter installation will see you having a beautiful green space by spring, ready for you and your family to enjoy.

#sustainability #lovelawn #greengrassofhome #GreenGrass #lawn #turf #natural #GreenSpacesInUrbanPlaces #bestpractices #responsiblefarming #parkyourarseonnaturalgrassFor the last 5 years we at Greenacres have been working hard to achieve zero waste and move towards sustainability. We started using leftover turf from commercial jobs and turning it into compost that can be used to topdress our pivots and be used in soil amendments – how cool is that! We are proud to be a leader in our industry for sustainability🌱💚 #sustainable #sustainability #sustainablefarming #turf #lawn #grass #zerowaste
