The struggle of installing grass is real. If you don’t find the perfect time and circumstances to do it, your lawn would die in a week. Fortunately, synthetic grass can be installed at any time of the year in most conditions and stay beautiful throughout every season. 

Regardless, we are often asked if there is an ideal time to install synthetic grass. Here are a few things to keep in mind when scheduling your synthetic grass to be installed on the Sunshine Coast.

When To Install Synthetic Grass on the Sunshine Coast


For many synthetic grass installers, there is a peak season. If you’re having trouble getting a fair quote and finding a reasonable time for your synthetic grass installation, chances are you’re in the middle of their busiest period. By finding out what time of year your local turf installers get busy, you can ensure that you both get a good deal and your pick of a time slot for installation of synthetic grass on the sunshine coast. The quality of the job will also likely be better as they won’t be rushing to move onto the next installation.

Dry Seasons

Rain is unideal for synthetic grass installations for a couple of reasons. First, it makes the process of installation take longer if it happens to be raining on the day. Second, damp conditions can make the process of compacting the ground in preparation for the synthetic grass more difficult and sometimes less effective. Your best bet is to book your synthetic grass installation in a dry season.

When it Won’t Be Used

Obviously the area in which you’re laying synthetic grass won’t be usable during the installation, but it’s best to give it some alone-time after the installation as well. After you have first laid synthetic grass on the Sunshine Coast, it’s best to leave it for at least a few days before introducing any foot traffic. Pick a time when you won’t be using the area for a while in order to get the best results.

When You Have the Time

When it comes down to it, the best time to install your synthetic grass is whenever you have time. If you’re hoping to oversee the project, make sure that you have cleared your schedule. The last thing you want is to force a rushed job because you’re squeezing the installation into a busy day. Give yourself ample time so that you can get the best quality installation possible.


The best thing about synthetic grass is that it isn’t grass! You don’t have to wait for the perfect conditions and ideal temperature. While all of the above are good things to keep in mind while installing synthetic grass on the Sunshine Coast, you ultimately have the freedom to do it whenever it suits you.
