Meet The Team

The Turfworks Team & Our Machines

We have a great team behind our business who help us deliver the highest quality turf, grass, and lawn products to the Fraser Coast Region. Other areas we deliver to include Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gympie, Maryborough, Rockhampton, Gladstone, and Yeppoon. With over 35 years of experience, you can trust that we have it covered!

We supply a wide range of lawns to suit all from Tahoma 31, Sir Walter, Zoysia Japonica, Zoysia Matrella, Empire Zoysia and Wintergreen Couch. We have the latest and most efficient machinery for harvesting, cutting, and mowing, which gives our farm a leading edge. We are excited to bring the latest technology in digital-controlled pivot harvesters with our 2 Firefly Automatix to the Bay giving Turfworks Group the ability to offer superior efficiency and certain continuity of supply. In addition, we do medium to large projects such as Stolonizing and Sports field rejuvenation.

We have a dedicated team with a reputation for high quality turf, professionalism, reliable service and efficient turn-around ordering system. We offer a measure and quote service and advise of what varieties would best suit your yard. We offer family-friendly information over the phones and professional advice on delivering. Being only 10 minutes from Hervey Bay our customers can come right to our door – it’s like a Grass Cellar Door. They can sample, look and feel the different varieties of lawn in our lawn plots and/or see the turf varieties growing in the field. Our Office/ Shop is fully stocked with all lawn products to give them the all-round A1 turf package. We offer a unique service using our pallet-less delivery system. Our pallets remain on our trucks, while forklifts remove the grass. We then place the turf as close as possible to the area being turfed. This means you do not have to worry about the removal of wooden pallets.

Peter has been involved in agriculture for 40 years and in that time has set up 3 turf farms. Turfworks Group was first established under Peter in 2003 and has grown to a capacity of 80 hectares of turf. During this time, Turfworks Group has trialled and grown many varieties to establish the best grasses for these regions. We have grown to be the leading turf producer in the Wide Bay/Burnett region.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm or speaking with you over the phone and helping with all your lawn needs.

Meet The Farmers

Our Locally Famous Farmers

We are your local, family-owned and operated turf farm located in the beautiful Hervey Bay. Peter and Christine have been in the turf industry since 1988, servicing the Wide Bay region for over 28 years, previously known as ‘Bay Turf’. Raising their three children here on the farm, it was only natural for Michael to follow in his father’s footsteps and open his own turf farm alongside Leisel, his wife, and their three kids in Gladstone in 2009.

Now combining some of the industry’s brightest minds in turf, they have merged their two family turf farming businesses, giving you the largest turf farm in the Fraser Coast region – Turfworks Group, where we are “Everything About Turf.”

Peter and Michael have always been keen on finding the best grasses and the best ways to get the best grass to our lawnie friends. They have attended many national and international seminars and conferences over the years, researching turf. In 2012, Michael was elected as one of the Future Leaders of the turf industry, winning a scholarship to study best practice methods of turf production in the United States, and he currently serves as a board member of the Queensland Turf Producers Association. So, our passion for lawns is real, and we are always looking at the new, best, and different grasses, lawn products, care, and maintenance. When you shop with Turfworks Group, you have peace of mind that the quality of turf we deliver to you is only the best.

Our new location at 20 Hebblewhite Road, Nikenbah, now boasts a new drive-through shed with an onsite lawn shop and “try before you buy” turf plot displays showing all of our turf varieties. Turfworks Group provides services for residential turf, trade turf, commercial turf, and sports field rejuvenation turf. We are your one-stop-shop for all your turf needs!

We are proud of our long-standing reputation for supplying quality turf and providing first-rate after-care service. We are also proud of our word-of-mouth reputation for providing a reliable, efficient, quality, and caring service. Our knowledge of lawns is based on decades of experience in the turf industry, and we look forward to helping you with your turf and providing any advice you need.
