1. PREPARING FOR TURF
Work out the area where the Tuff Turf will go. Usually
there 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 all
loose 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 they
are either capped or removed.
Once the area is excavated, use a rake to level it out
to ensure it is smooth and even for the sub-base.
2. LAYING THE BASE
Place and compact approximately 60mm of crushed
rock as sub-base. Lightly sprinkle water over the
crushed rock before compaction so the base
becomes firm. A vibrating plate will produce the
best result. Ensure you have enough fall on the base
to allow for water drainage.
Complete your base works by adding a fine 20mm
layer of crushed stone over the top of your base and
level it out again following the same procedure. This
will give you a more even finish.
After compacting, your base should be
approximately 15mm below the finished height of
your surrounding edging/paving.
3. LAYING OUT THE TURF
Lay out the Tuff Turf and allow it to relax for several
hours. This will remove any creases and allow the
Tuff Turf to better settle. Always run the grass in the
same direction. Remove the ‘salvage’ black strip
from both sides of the grass. Cut the Tuff Turf to fit
your area. Use a sharp utility knife along edges, and
around trees and flower beds. Take your time to
ensure a flawless finish.
TIP: Keep changing your blade as this will make
cutting the Tuff Turf easier.
4. JOINING THE TURF
Pull the two pieces of Tuff Turf together so they are
as close as possible. Make sure they are not touching
or overlapping. There should never be more than
a 5mm gap. Once in place, position a marker at
both ends of where the two pieces join together.
Fold back both sides of your turf and roll out and
centralise Tuff Turf Adhesive Tape between the two
markers. Cut the tape at one end and gently peel off
the foil along the entire length. Gently place both
sides of the Tuff Turf onto the adhesive tape and
continue this process down the entire length of your
join. Walk along the seam several times to ensure it
sticks down securely.
5. SECURING YOUR TURF
Secure the edges with 100mm or 150mm flat head
nails. Nail as close to the edge as possible and
continue nailing along the edge every 200–300mm.
Make sure you pull the fibre of the grass apart so the
nail goes in smoothly and does not hold the fibre
down. At completion of this step the nails should be
6. ADDING SAND INFILL
With a power broom or a stiff bristled broom, brush
the blades of turf upwards. This makes it easier to
distribute the sand infill evenly. Gently spread dried
silica sand across the entire area. We recommend
10–15kg of sand per square metre of turf. The sand
should be spread as evenly as possible. For large
areas you may need to hire a sand spreader tool. For
small 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 cause
