Turfing Large Areas
Turfco has been successfully turfing large areas and establishing parklands, golf courses, ovals and erosion control sites throughout Sydney, the South Coast and the Southern Highlands for over 30 years.
Below is a brief description of our planting methods.
This method uses a purpose built turf planter that was originally designed to establish turf crops on turf farms, it shreds and plants pieces of turf 150mm x 50 mm into shallow continuous furrows 200mm apart. It is an ideal method to be used on level sites, with at least 150 mm of topsoil and adequate irrigation, it can be established into a usable surface in as little as nine weeks.
This method is similar to sprig planting, it mechanically cuts pieces of turf into 100mm x 75 mm pieces and presses them into the surface. This method takes approximately four weeks longer to establish than sprig planting, but is ideal on sites that have rocks and other debris.
The above methods include a final surface preparation that is completed using Turfco’s blecovator ground cultivator that creates a fine tilth seedbed in a single pass.
