New water exemption for residential customers with new or renovated homes. Residential customers should contact Sydney Water on 13 20 92 during business hours and select ‘Option 2 for Water Restrictions’.

How do I know how much turf to order?

Turf is measured in square metres and our no obligation quotes are calculated in square metres. By measuring your lawn size, you will be able to calculate how many square metres are covered and know how much turf you will need.

What is the approximate price of turf?

Prices will vary with turf type. Contact us for an obligation-free quote. You can also find the price of the turf you are interested in by looking at its independent turf variety page.

Does Buffalo Turf provide turf installation services or do you just supply the turf?

We supply and lay the turf, we do not do any of the preparation work but we can put you in contact with somebody who does all this.

Is the cost of laying the turf built into the quote or is this quoted separately?

The price of your turf is a separate quote to the installation fee. This is because the installation cost varies depending on the site and access to the area.

Do you deliver your turf?

Yes, if you buy from us directly, we do include delivery across the Sydney region. If you choose, for an extra cost we can also include installation on the same day of delivery.

How big are the rolls of turf and how much do they weigh?

The usual roll size is 2.2 metres long and 0.45 metres wide (totaling 1 square metre). The weight will vary from 4 kg to 10 kg depending on variety and weather.  If we have had rain this will add to this weight.

I don’t have much spare time to do this can you provide help?

We work closely with others in the landscape business and can recommend professional landscapers to prepare and lay your new lawn, just contact us.

My lawn is only postage stamp size, can you help with this?

Certainly, no order is too big or too small for J&B Buffalo Turf. We like to deliver all our customers with a stunning new lawn. In order to guarantee we can cater to all sizes; we sell our turf in square metres to make this easy for both those with a big or small area.

What sort of lead time is required for delivery of my order?

To ensure total convenience for our customers, we allow you to tell us when you want it delivered. This way you have control and can organise the turf to be delivered at a convenient time for you. Depending on stock and availability, you can have your turf delivered on the same day you order.

Do I have to lay the lawn immediately or can I leave it for a few days?

Turf is a living, breathing plant and needs to be installed immediately when it is delivered. The turf needs to be bought into contact with the topsoil and moisture as soon as possible.

Can you supply turf all year round?

Absolutely. As we are located on the Hawkesbury/Nepean River we have an excellent supply of water so we are not affected by drought weather conditions and our turf can be grown under premium conditions. This means you are getting the best turf possible.

When is the best time to lay our new lawn?

Your new lawn can be laid at any time of the year.

  • A lawn put down in down in warmer weather will require more water and will take root quicker.
  • In the cooler months your lawn will not require as much water but will take longer to get established.
