Lilydale Instant Lawn commenced operation in 1985 with Garry & Peter Lusk on a small rural property based in Wonga Park. Due to rapid expansion a larger 70 acre property was quickly acquired in Yarra Glen.
Over the past 30 years, Lilydale Instant Lawn has gone from strength to strength with Garry Lusk at the helm as Managing Director, Denise Lusk running OH&S & HR and Steve Cole as General Manager, it is now one of the leading turf producer in Melbourne.
Lilydale Instant Lawn’s farm portfolio now comprises in excess of 1500 acres in total, including the original 70 acre farm and head office based in Yarra Glen, three Pakenham farms and a large scale sand based farm at Bairnsdale. With the acquisition of the Bairnsdale property in 2011, it has given us the flexibility to supply a variety of soil based turf products including sand based instant turf to service the sports and racing industries.
We grow a vast array of instant turf varieties in QWELTS to create the perfect lawn for both domestic and commercial areas. These include Sir Walter Buffalo, Eureka Kikuyu Premium VG, Eureka Kikuyu, Nullarbor Couch, Village Green Kikuyu and Grand Prix Couch.
