Can you lay turf in winter?
There is a common belief that planting is limited to the warmer months. And while there are valid reasons for this as far as plants go, laying turf in Australia can be done year round.
Autumn and spring provide the perfect environment for moisture retention and healthy root development, as soil and air temperatures are optimal. And while turf is known to take longer to establish itself in cooler months due to slower growth cycles, there are still plenty of benefits.
Laying turf in summer can often mean watering several times a day to ensure moisture is retained. While in the cooler months, watering is not needed anywhere near as much, you can essentially halve your water usage and still maintain a healthy lawn.
While your lawn is still establishing itself and self-repairing is not as resilient, extra care should be taken to reduce foot traffic, pets and garden furniture on your new lawn. But don’t let this be a deterrent to laying new turf. Installing new turf in the winter period means you will have a fully established and mature root system capable of handling a hot summer in its first year.
Quality turf will guarantee you the best start to your outdoor space. To see what turf is right for you, see our ‘Which turf is right for me?’ .
