    Paving around pools.

     Paving around a pool area is very important and there are a few things that should be kept in mind when designing the area. 1- The paving design should allow adequate space for access and seating to comfortable fit everyone in.

  • Turf preperation

    For a great result when laying a new lawn you need to get the preparation right. There are a few important steps to follow to produce a fantastic result and get the full benefit from your investment.

    1- Spray round up on the area to kill all weeds and unwanted turf at least 7 days before you want to lay your new lawn. 

    2- Dig out the site so you can bring in a minimum of 50mm of quality soil.

    3- If the area has clay soil use gypsum at 25kg to every 100sqm to help break up the soil. If it is sandy soil use dolomite or lime at the same rate and rake it in.

    4- Bring in your quality soil and spread evenly and create run off for any drainage issues your site might have.

    5- Remember to leave it 25mm under you finished height to allow for the depth of the turf. This will allow your turf to be level with your paths or driveway. 40mm if you are laying Sir Walter. 

    6- Now is the time to spread your fertilizer over the area. Go to your local garden center and buy a turf starter fertilizer with a wetting agent in it. The wetting agent will help hold the moisture in the soil and give the turf it's best chance to grow.

    7- Begin laying your turf. Start from a straight edge and make sure it is butted up tight together and not overlapping.

    8- Water all turf in well so it is soaked.

    9- Use a roller to roll all the turf so the roots get pushed in to the soil. If you don't have access to a roller please hire one for half a day because this step makes a big difference in the finish.

    10 - Keep the turf moist for two weeks and you will have a beautiful lawn into the future.

  • Paving and retaining walls.

    This is a paver stepping path and retaining wall we have just completed. The reason they look so good is that we take time to set out properly. We make sure our string line is set straight and at the right height and we constantly check the levels as we go. We also lay all our pavers on a bed of mortar so once they are set they stay exactly where they are meant to be. 

  • Getting Your Yard Ready for Christmas

    There are only 3 more Saturdays until Christmas!  There are a few simple steps you can take to get your yard looking great to impress your family and friends when entertaining this Christmas.

    STEP 1- Lawn Care- who doesn't love a nice tidy, green lawn.   The tidy bit is easy- the green bit is not so easy in Queensland!  Frist things first- tidy- pick up all dead branches, fronds, old dog toys etc.  Already things look better!

    Next- mow!  Don't be tempted to cut too much away- aim not to cut more than one third of the leaf- leaving the leaf long encourages better root growth and as a result, more hardy, tolerant turf.   If you are really keen to impress- you can mow weekly until Christmas!

    After mowing- apply a liquid lawn fertilizer- preferably one that screws onto the hose so you can spray with one hand and enjoy your favourite cold beverage with the other!  

    Get cracking- more tips next week!
