What lawn variety is right for Illawarra and the South Coast?
When you are choosing a turf for your home, there are a few factors you should take into account.
The lawn variety needs to be suitable for the area as well as for your individual needs. Choosing the right lawn variety can be the difference between a lawn that struggles and a healthy, thriving lawn.
One of the biggest effects the Australian climate has on turf is how much water will be required. Even in July, the driest month, Illawarra and the South Coast still recieves around 40mm of rainfall.
With this amount of rainfall, you may only need to water your lawn occasionally. Your climate will also affect how much drought tolerance and frost tolerance your new lawn will need.
Illawarra and the South Coast has a reasonably warm and temperate climate, however, if your lawn is exposed to direct sunlight over summer, it may still require more watering than in winter.
How much shade and sun your lawn gets will depend on the height of your house, any fences, the size of the lawn and whether you’ll have trees or hedges around where your lawn will go.
Keep in mind that any new plants are likely taller than they are at the moment.
Depending what you plan to use your lawn for will affect how much wear and tear it receives.
If you have lots of foot traffic, such as in parks or sports grounds, or if you have pets or children, you’ll want a quick repairing grass.
Different varieties of grass require varying amounts of care. Whether it is mowing, watering or fertilising, you should consider how often you would like to tend to your new lawn.
Look and Feel:
This last factor is quite a personal one as it varies from person to person.
The look and feel includes choosing between a fine or broad leaf, the softness of your lawn and the height that your lawn will sit at.
Benefits of Turf in Illawarra and South Coast
Buyers are automatically drawn to a house with a lush green lawn as People look for a place where they can imagine themselves being happy.
A lawn is an area that the buyer could socialise, relax and play sports. Not only is your home likely to draw in more interest, but a recent study has shown that homebuyers will pay up to 19% more for a house with an attractive, luscious, green lawn.
A healthy lawn will significantly cool your home and surrounds. The average front lawn has twice the cooling capacity as the average home’s ducted air-conditioning system without taking a toll on your electricity bill.
Grass is the most effective plant life at converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, and that includes trees. A simple 15 x 15m turfed lawn will produce enough oxygen for a family of four.
Compared to the alternatives for your new yard, turf is by far the most cost effective one.
Artificial turf, pavers and sandstone have their own benefits but also carry a significantly higher initial cost per square metre.
Especially for large areas, turf grass is a far more affordable option, regardless of the chosen variety.
A turfed lawn helps to balance out the negative effects of urban living. It absorbs or filters numerous types of pollutions.
These include dust, allergies, disease, noise, heat, glare and air pollution.

What do I need to do before installing a new lawn?
Depending on what state your lawn is currently in, you will need to do a few things in preparation for a new lawn.
This may include:
- Clearing the site
- Evaluating the soil
- Laying down new soil
- Applying a starter fertiliser
You can find more information on preparing for a new lawn on our Site Preparation page.
What is the process for installing a new lawn?
It is best to install turf as soon as it is delivered. Our freshly cut turf is rolled and transported in a way that conserves as much moisture as possible but once we deliver it, it will continue to dry out until it is installed.
Lay the turf in a brick-like formation which the edges butted up against each other but not overlapping. If you can, start with a straight edge, such as a driveway or fence, and continue from there.
Once your new lawn has been installed, give it a thorough watering.
