1. PREPARING FOR TURFWork out the area where the Tuff Turf will go. Usuallythere will be a border of some sort like paving,concrete or timber edging. If the area is not clear,mark it out with a rope or spray paint. Remove allloose vegetation and any debris that is in the way.Dig out the area to a depth of 75–80mm.If there are any existing sprinklers, ensure that theyare either capped or removed.Once the area is excavated, use a rake to level it outto ensure it is smooth and even for the sub-base.2. LAYING THE BASEPlace and compact approximately 60mm of crushedrock as sub-base. Lightly sprinkle water over thecrushed rock before compaction so the basebecomes firm. A vibrating plate will produce thebest result. Ensure you have enough fall on the baseto allow for water drainage.Complete your base works by adding a fine 20mmlayer of crushed stone over the top of your base andlevel it out again following the same procedure. Thiswill give you a more even finish.After compacting, your base should beapproximately 15mm below the finished height ofyour surrounding edging/paving.3. LAYING OUT THE TURFLay out the Tuff Turf and allow it to relax for severalhours. This will remove any creases and allow theTuff Turf to better settle. Always run the grass in thesame direction. Remove the ‘salvage’ black stripfrom both sides of the grass. Cut the Tuff Turf to fityour area. Use a sharp utility knife along edges, andaround trees and flower beds. Take your time toensure a flawless finish.TIP: Keep changing your blade as this will makecutting the Tuff Turf easier.4. JOINING THE TURFPull the two pieces of Tuff Turf together so they areas close as possible. Make sure they are not touchingor overlapping. There should never be more thana 5mm gap. Once in place, position a marker atboth ends of where the two pieces join together.Fold back both sides of your turf and roll out andcentralise Tuff Turf Adhesive Tape between the twomarkers. Cut the tape at one end and gently peel offthe foil along the entire length. Gently place bothsides of the Tuff Turf onto the adhesive tape andcontinue this process down the entire length of yourjoin. Walk along the seam several times to ensure itsticks down securely.5. SECURING YOUR TURFSecure the edges with 100mm or 150mm flat headnails. Nail as close to the edge as possible andcontinue nailing along the edge every 200–300mm.Make sure you pull the fibre of the grass apart so thenail goes in smoothly and does not hold the fibredown. At completion of this step the nails should behidden.6. ADDING SAND INFILLWith a power broom or a stiff bristled broom, brushthe blades of turf upwards. This makes it easier todistribute the sand infill evenly. Gently spread driedsilica sand across the entire area. We recommend10–15kg of sand per square metre of turf. The sandshould be spread as evenly as possible. For largeareas you may need to hire a sand spreader tool. Forsmall areas a seed dropper or a shovel work best.Aim to get the sand in between the blades of grass.Large volumes of sand in the one area will causelumpy grass.See installation pdf for visual instructions.
