Pimpala Landscape Supplies can help you with all aspects of installing your new lawn. We can provide the base soil, starter fertilizer, instant turf in various styles and rollers and top dressing soil to complete the installation. All our turf is cut fresh and delivered the following day. We supply the following lawns:



A very hardwearing couch that will tolerate less water, fine in texture and able to take full sun. Best conditions for laying between September/October and May.


A lush, green, strong, rapid growing grass. It is extremely hard wearing and water efficient, suitably where watering is spasmodic. (Holiday homes). Being a dwarf version it is not as aggressive as the traditional kikuyu and had a much finer leaf. Prefers full sun but will tolerate a small amount of shade.


A new release to Australia. It is low maintenance, disease resistant and drought tolerant. It will also cope well with herbicides and pesticide spray’s. It is softer to lie on than traditional buffalo.


Similar to wintergreen. Bright to mid green colour throughout the year if fertilized regularly. Quick to recover from damage e.g. animals. Good prostrate growth, low thatch, shoots off every node, dense root system. Ideal for sporting facilities, parks and gardens and high traffic areas and home lawns.


This is our new number 1 Soft Leaf Buffalo which is a surface creeper. Very quick growing so it will repair itself quickly during summer and it can tolerate 60%-70% shade. It is also very good in high traffic. Will also remain greener during winter. Comes out of dormancy much earlier than other Buffalo varieties. Can be mowed short (20mm) or long (40mm).


Valley Green Kikuyu is a better option for Adelaide’s climate than traditional Kikuyu. It is male sterile, darker in colour and will stay greener through winter. Kikuyu has a good drought tolerance and will rapidly self repair from wear. A low maintenance grass that will stay green with minimal irrigation and fertility.


After working out your measurements phone or call in to place your order. Deliveries are made Tuesday through to Saturday and you must place your order before 12.00 on the day before you require your delivery. (Please check if you require your delivery near a public holiday as delivery schedules can change.


For best results rotary hoe or dig the area to a depth of 10cm to 15cm. Eliminate drainage problems by having soil slope away from foundations etc. Rake and smooth the soil, removing rocks, roots and large clods. Roll the area lightly with a lawn roller 1/3 full of water. This will firm the soil surface and reveal low areas that need more soil. Keep the grade to 2cm to 3cm below walkway’s and driveway. Water the prepared area to settle the soil and provide a moist base for turf. Moistening topsoil to a depth of 15cm is recommended- this is particularly important for Sir Walter Buffalo to establish the root growth. Spread superstart fertilizer over the soil immediately prior to laying instant turf.


Install your turf immediately upon delivery. Turf is a living plant that requires ground contact and moisture to survive. In hot weather protect unlaid turf by placing rolls in shade, remove all shrink-wrap packaging, and cover with moist sacking. Water the soil before laying and keep laid lawn and soil moist as you continue laying the remaining lawn. Begin laying turf along the longest straight line, such as a driveway or walkway. Butt and push the edges and ends against each other tightly, without stretching. Avoid gaps or overlaps. Stagger the joints in each row in a brick-like fashion, using a sharp knife to trim edges and corners. Avoid leaving small strips at outer edges as they will not retain moisture. On slopes lay the turf across the slope. On completion of laying, give the lawn a light roll with a lawn roller to remove any air pockets and bind the lawn to the soil. With couch grass and particularly Sir Walter Buffalo, it is very important to wet and roll grass down firmly to remove air pockets to assist the roots to establish. Rollers are available for hire from $10.00 per day with a $20.00 refundable deposit.


Give your new lawn at least 2-3cm of water within ½ hour of installation. Water daily for one hour in the morning for the first 2 weeks, during the third week drop back to every second day, then watering can be reduced to less frequent. Weather conditions will dictate the amount and frequency of watering. Be certain that your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry or windy periods. Water areas near buildings more often where reflected heat dries the lawn.
*During the first 3 weeks, avoid heavy or concentrated use of your new lawn. This gives the roots an opportunity to firmly knit with the soil, and ensures that the lawn will remain smooth and even.
