With our increased production capacity we can now supply and install Eureka Kikuyu and Couch lawn varieties in maxi rolls. (20m²/roll) Big rolls work best in open spaces without an excessive amount of curves or trees. As with all sod installations proper soil preparation is essential. So while not appropriate for every situation, here are some reasons why you might prefer to go for big rolls instead of our slab cut method in large public areas or playing fields:
- Higher quality, more efficient, faster establishment.
- Less down time off the field.
- Improved playability.
- Provides a smoother surface with fewer joins.
- Less chance for edges to dry out.
- Faster installation process, which brings the added benefit of being able to apply water sooner, resulting in less stress to the lawn.

5 reasons to love turf in your school yard
- Turf Loves Cooling
Turf is Mother Nature’s most efficient natural air conditioner. The temperature of a healthy lawn area in the middle of summer is 10 degrees celsius less than bare soil, 20 degrees less than asphalt, concrete or pebble mulch and 40 degrees less than synthetic turf.
- Turf Loves Lowering Emissions
A building surrounded by turf will negate the need to run air conditioners for as often or as long, which helps reduce the amount of carbon pollutants created by electricity, and will help reduce your school power bill! The average home lawn produces the same cooling effect as 9 tonnes of air conditioning (enough for two houses).
- Turf Loves Making Oxygen
Lawn area of just 5m² will provide enough oxygen for one person for an entire day.
- Turf Loves The Environment
Turf combats climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels and a range of other human activity. It acts as a natural sink for carbon dioxide and replenishes soil and improves its quality.
