Sir Walters/Zoysia OR Matilda

Check around your local nurseries or online for viro cells of turf, this may be a cheaper option but will take longer to establish in the short term.

Final payment is made at handover and a time to come back and install appliances is usually made. Tradies will check to make sure they are working before leaving.
