Turf preparation on the Gold Coast
The base of any good lawn is proper turf preparation. Before you turf or re-turf your lawn, you need to remove any existing lawn weeds, rocks, and any other debris. You need to hoe your soil and rake it over (removing any debris which has been unearthed during hoeing). You need to level your soil to make it 30mm lower than your paths, pavers, and driveways to make sure it sits flush when it grows.
It’s a lot of work, but it’s all necessary to support a lawn that will grow quickly and healthily. This is particularly important on the Gold Coast when the lawn needs to stay strong over the summer and winter months. Proper turf preparation ensures that your soil has the right drainage and acidity and that the soil will support the lawn that you want to grow. Remember it’s a lot easier to correct soil issues at this stage then after your turf has been laid.
