Laying turf can be fairly straightforward, but on this property in Woollahra we had to remove deeply rooted existing plants and shrubs first, as these formed a false border on the property, which would simply confuse buyers when the house went on the market the following week. Extending the lawn of course meant matching the turf and doing away with the bed, prepping the top soil and then laying the turf and maintaining it while it bedded in. There was a lot of green waste as well; never overlook this when asking a gardener for a quote , as chances are it won’t all fit in your green bin and trips to the appropriate green waste tip are not cheap in Sydney!
