With the current water restrictions in place, winter is the best time in Sydney to get a new lawn. The cool and wet weather will help the grass settle before it gets hot and dry.

Don’t wait until summer, when there’s limited water resources, to buy new turf! Take advantage of the rainy season to make sure that your lawn gets the right amount of water to settle and fully grow to its full potential.

Sydney Lawn and Turf can supply turf to you and help you maintain a lush green lawn despite the current circumstances.

Why should you install turf now?

  • Water restrictions are harder to follow in summer.
  • You can apply for a 7-week water exemption.
  • Heat is against your lawn. Therefore, it will suffer.
  • You can take advantage of the cool and wet season.
