The NSW turf Industry has a value of approximately $81 million per year, selling large quantities into urban landscaping and sporting facilities (NSW DPI, 2014).
The use of turf in landscape designs has many benefits including; beautifying large areas, stabilising soil and providing recreational space.
Customers will often go to a lot of trouble and expense in selecting and purchasing the turf that is most suitable for the situation. But, very often there will be little consideration (and budget) for giving turf the soil it needs to grow well. Turf may be planted over unprepared ground with issues such as competing weeds and water repellence creating conditions that hamper turf establishment and growth.
Soilco Turf Special is used extensively as a turf underlay for lawns. A consistent and reliable natural soil, turf special is suitable for all lawn types including soft leaf buffalo (Sir Walter and Palmetto), Kikuyu and Couch.
Turf Special can be purchased from Soilco distributors. For larger commercial projects please contact Soilco.
