It's easy to install our turf,
just follow these step-by-step instructions:


1. Measure:

Measure the area that you intend to cover using a tape measure. Please do not pace it out. Exact measurements will give you the correct amount of turf and starter fertilizer needed to cover the area that you have indicated.

2. Soil Preparation:

For optimal results, cover the area 4-6 inches deep with tufturf sandy lawn blend.

Rake out the area level and roll the area with a lawn roller 1/3 full of water. This will smooth out the level area and reveal any dips or valleys which can be remedied with a few scoops of the tufturf sandy lawn blend.

Smooth over area and water to provide a moist, solid base for turf. 

3. Fertilization:

Spread the appropriate amount of starter fertilizer using a hand spreader ensuring even distribution.

4. Ordering and Delivery:

Turf is a perishable product and fresh cut to order. Ensure preparatory work has been completed before you receive your turf. Prompt installation is key to a healthy lawn. Call us at 250-721-5300 to place your order. 

5. Turf Installation

Begin installing turf along longest straight line, such as a driveway or sidewalk. Butt edges flush against one-another. Avoid gaps or overlaps. Stagger the joints in a brick-like fashion.Use a sharp knife to trim edges. On slopes, lay strips across slope.To avoid causing indentations or air pockets avoid walking on the turf while it is being installed or immediately after watering.

After installation, roll the entire surface to remove air pockets and ensure root to soil contact.

We do recommend that Children and pets stay off of the turf for 10-14 days or until it's first mowing.

*We rent lawn-rollers and fertilizer spreaders, just ask our friendly staff!

6. Watering:

Begin watering lawn within 30 minutes of installation. Continue to water twice daily or more if necessary to keep turf moist until it is firmly rooted to soil (about 10 to 14 days).

When you are ready to give it the first mowing, then reduce the watering to ONE inch, ONE day a week. Measure it and time it,  as that will train the roots to look for water deep in the ground resulting in a thick, beautiful lawn.

Maintaining your tufturf lawn:

Your new lawn significantly increases your property value. To protect this valuable asset, proper lawn maintenance is a must.

Mowing:

Mow often, but remove no more than 1/3 of the grass height at a time. Always keep mower blades sharp and mower engine tuned. This will provide a cleaner cut and a well-tuned engine produces fewer emissions. Mow more frequently during peak growing seasons. To keep lawn healthy, remove clippings.

Watering:

Infrequent deep watering trains the roots to look for water deep in the ground which results in a drought tolerant lawn. One inch, one day week. Measure it and time it.

We do recommend that Children and pets stay off of the turf for 10-14 days or until it's first mowing.

Fertilization:

An annual fertilizing program is important in the development of a lush, thick, green and healthy lawn. Begin feeding lawn with first mowing of year. Follow-up every 6-8 weeks as needed (approximately 4 times a year). Feed your lawn in late spring, early summer, and at the beginning and end of the fall season. Fertilizer may be applied using a rotary or drop spreader

*Fertilizer Spreaders are available to rent through our store, see our equipment rental section for details.

We also can recommend certified installers should you require assistance in installation.
